Marshall County Humane Society News
Since the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic will be closed for the first three weeks in March and we are already booked through April 13, we will not be accepting any more appointments after March 1 until the clinic reopens March 23.
Whether you are calling 662-252-6196 for an appointment at the clinic or 662-564-2900 to inquire about adopting a new friend or reporting a starving horse, please leave your phone number.
It would be great if you would say it at least twice since cell phones are famous for bleeping out a number or two. If we can’t understand your number we can’t call you back. One person has been getting progressively irate about not getting a return call - - but has yet to leave the phone number.
Help us help you and speak your number clearly and slowly; twice would be good.
Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
