Pancake breakfast set for Saturday
The Marshall County Humane Society invites you to join us at the VFW in Holly Springs Saturday morning for our annual pancake breakfast.
In addition to our traditional sausage, pancakes, coffee, milk and juice, this year we’ll also have scrambled eggs.
But not just ordinary eggs. These are from free-range chickens who haven’t been injected with hormones or other drugs and live happy little chicken lives on Sherry and Bill Janssen’s property.
We’ll be serving from 7-10 a.m. Tickets are $5 each for all you can eat. The proceeds will be spent caring for local, needy animals so your money stays right here to help your community.
Come join us for a great breakfast and support a great cause.
The Spay/Neuter Clinic will be closed on June 22. We are already booking dogs for July but have earlier openings for cats. For your appointment 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 mailed to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
