Shelter animals need homes
I had to take one last chance to remind you about the live and silent auctions at the Multi-Purpose Building at 160 S. Memphis St. in Holly Springs this Saturday. The Marshall County Humane Society hopes you will join our Dog Days Celebration from 4 – 8 p.m. to support our efforts to help needy animals in our area.
Speaking of needy animals, we have a shelter full of healthy, loveable animals who really need homes. There are cats and dogs of all varieties; someone for everyone.
There is a small adoption fee which covers the cost of spaying or neutering and shots, so that’s already taken care of for you. You just have to provide a good environment and lots of love.
This is a great time of year to get a new pet. The weather’s good and the kids are out of school so you can send them outside to play and they can get used to the responsibilities of taking care of a dependent creature.
A little health hint for your pups: If your dog has long hair and spends time outside you might want to check their feet. With all this rainy weather that wet, long hair can cause irritation and encourage fungal growth.
For an appointment at the Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-1696.
For info. on 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.
Dog Days of Summer Celebration
Please join us for Humane Society’s Dog Days of Summer Celebration on Saturday, August 1 from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Building on Memphis St. in Holly Springs.
There will be lots of good food, music and fun for the low ticket price of $10. But the best part is the many great items we will have at Silent Auction. There will also be a few items up for bid by our auctioneer. Door prizes this year are a copier/fax combination, grocery gift certificate and movie tickets.
Some of the items we’ll be auctioning include: laser printers, labeling systems, sewing machine, numerous plants, prints done by local artists, overnight stays with dinner at several casinos, jewelry, facial treatments, pallets of sod, tools, dog food, dog treats and toys plus much, much more.
For tickets or information, call 662-564-0164 or 662-564-1071 or e-mail email@example.com.
It has been a rough year for the animals with many being abandoned. We have tried to help as many as we can with our limited number of volunteers and space, so we need to raise more funds in order to continue to help with the animal overpopulation problem. We have done over 7,000 spay/neuters in the area, which is one of the most important things we can do to help combat this. For spay/neuter appointments, please call 662-252-6196.
We had a really fun morning at our Pet Contest at Kudzu Festival recently with some really cute pets. See the picture of the winner of “Best Trick” contest, along with a Great Pyrenees and miniature pinscher who shared some fun on the lawn after contests were over.
