MC Humane Society receives car tag grant
The Marshall County Humane Society (MCHS) has been awarded a $3,000 “I Care for Animals” car tag grant to go towards their low-cost spay/neuter program.
The MCHS has been active since 1998. The organization’s mission encompasses the provision of spay/neuter services, humane education, animal rescue and rehabilitation, aid to local law enforcement and disaster relief.
Anyone interested in adopting an animal, donating or volunteering should call 662-564-2900. Donations may be mailed to MCHS, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
The “I Care for Animals” Car Tag Program offers an opportunity for Mississipp-ians to purchase a specialty license plate. The proceeds from these purchases go into a state animal care fund which is distributed to animal shelters and humane organizations which make application and meet the criteria for award.
This program is in its eighth year of assisting animal shelters primarily with spay/neuter programs, and also with general projects which benefit homeless animals. To date the program has awarded funds to over 50 organizations.
The “I Care for Animals” Car Tag Program is administered by the MS Board of Animal Health. An advisory panel comprised of knowledgeable volunteers from various animal shelters located throughout the state assists State Veterinarian Dr. Jim Watson and the Board of Animal Health in selecting qualified applicants.
Cities, counties and nonprofit animal organizations which are interested in applying for “I Care for Animals” grant money should contact Beth Adcock at 769-798-3137 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
