February - Adopt an Older Dog Month
Puppies are always irrestible, but if you are looking for a new companion, there are a lot of good reasons to consider an older dog. For those of us who are old and tired, an older dog is already trained and doesn’t require endless hours of play time. They have cut all their teeth so don’t feel compelled to chew up your shoes and underwear and furniture. They know to go outside instead of on your new oriental rug.
Since February is “Adopt an Older Dog” month, how about checking out the ones the Marshall County Humane Society has at our shelter?
Vickie, for instance, loves to walk on a leash and is really good at it. She won’t wrap it around your legs or try to pull your arm off. She is already fixed and has all her shots and all she really needs is someone to give her devotion to. Call 662-564-2900 to make an appointment to see her and all the rest of the crew.
If you are looking for a cat, we also have a special needs kitty, among others. You would never know it to watch the way she acts but she lost an eye at an early age. It hasn’t slowed her down a bit.
A lot of people don’t like to talk to answering machines. However, the appointment line for the Spay/Neuter Clinic rings so much, messages are necessary. A volunteer makes the appointments from her own home so there are no office hours. The bottom line is, if you want to make an appointment leave a message. Please don’t just keep calling and letting it ring.
Speaking of phoning, if you can’t make the appointment you already have, please let us know. If you don’t, that appointment may go unfilled and another animal won’t be fixed that could have been. Besides, it’s just plain rude.
For an appointment at the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic, or to cancel the appointment you’ve made, call 662-252-6196 and leave a message.
For information about adoptions, fostering or anything else call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be mailed to the Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
