Volunteers needed to help care for animals
If you would like to spend a couple of hours in a peaceful spot every week the Marshall County Humane Society (MCHS) has just the thing. We are looking for volunteers to help us take care of the animals at Higher Ground, our adoption center. It involves cleaning the kennels so wear your grubbies, but you also get to feed them and let them out to play. You can work alone or bring a partner. If you are interested, call Sherry at 662-564-2829 or 662-629-0005.
We’ve had several reports of missing dogs lately, especially Rottweilers. It is spring and some of those animals who haven’t been fixed may have just been answering nature’s call. But, whether they ran away themselves or had an assist from felonious two-leggeds, keep an eye on your dogs when they’re outside.
We have a bunch of very distinctive cats at the shelter who could really use some cat food and litter while they are waiting for new homes. If you’d like to make a donation call 662-564-2900.
For an appointment at the MCHS sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196.
For information about adoptions, fostering or anything else about our Humane Society, call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
