New homes in New England
We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Especially six little pups who just went to their new homes in New England. They would like to thank everyone for making this trip possible for them. Buddy, Mazee, Charlie, Linus, Lucy and Mickey just went on Homeward Bound through Mississippi State Veterinary School to their new homes. The Humane Society spends over $100 for each of these little dogs to travel north, so we welcome anyone who will sponsor one of these dogs towards their travel north to a new home. We take a loss on each dog so we offer sponsorships for each dog at a cost of $50 or $75 to get them to a new loving home. Call the Marshall County Humane Society at 662-564-2900 for an appointment to see all the available pets. See Petfinder.com for a complete list of our animals for adoption.

Harry’s Alive! Rescued from sand Wednesday
At 7:50 a.m. Wednesday morning after two ropes were placed around his body, Harry Miller commanded his rescuers to pull until he told them to stop. “I’m coming out!” The men pulled with all the strength they had left after the 20-hour battle waged to save his life. Harry, a 44-year-old negro, was freed from the tons of sand that had covered his body since Tuesday morning. Rescue workers fought the treacherous sands inside a cistern Tuesday night to save Harry, who was trapped beneath a framework of timber. Harry is recovering at John Gaston Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., where is is in surprisingly good condition, considering his ordeal. The cooperation between the whites and and Negroes caused an elderly Negro woman to exclaim: “The way these white folks is helping the colored folks, if it’s the Lord’s will, he ought to live!” Too much praise cannot be given to the hundreds who helped. Their efforts were well rewarded Wednesday morning when they learned “Harry will live!”
