Marshall County Humane Society News
MC Humane Society fund-raiser
The Marshall County Humane Society needs your help! We’ve joined forces with The Pampered Chef, via a local consultant, to help our local adoption center in Holly Springs and the low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Byhalia.
As many of you know, it’s solely up to us, the citizens of our community, to care for stray animals and to control the pet population in our area by spaying and neutering our pets.
Many of us are cooking more at home these days and Pampered Chef offers quality kitchen tools to make that task faster, easier, and more enjoyable ~ bringing families back to the table at mealtime.
You can help us by logging onto www.pamperedchef.biz/cstarrgo -- click on “Shop Online” and enter “Marshall County Humane Society” as your host or call Starr Collins, 901-283-3843 to place an order.
Any purchase helps us!
In addition to 10-15 percent of the sales generated, we’ll also get a $3 contribution for every future show booked.
Please visit the above website or call between Feb 19-27 to place your order and help a worthy cause! Thank you.
