Marshall County Humane Society News
The Marshall County Humane Society is celebrating the autumnal equinox this year with our annual spaghetti supper. We’ll be dishing out all you can eat spaghetti and salad at the VFW in Holly Springs on Tuesday, September 22, from 4-7 p.m.
Tickets are $6 per plate. As always, all the money we make will be spent to help needy animals in our area.
In October our low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic will have what Carmen calls a “blitz.”
Some of Dr. Johnson’s veterinarian friends are coming to help one weekend. Since we’ll have more hands we’ll be able to do more surgeries.
For an appointment, call 662-252-6196. For this one occasion, you may also make an appointment at 662-564-2900.
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.
