Harrison County Animal Shelter is Over Capacity Again

From:  News Release   8/18/17   GCN
Gulfport, MS-The Humane Society of South Mississippi (HSSM) is over capacity once again with 405 animals in-house.  There are 199 cats out on foster care with 40 kittens expected to come back to the shelter within the next two weeks for adoption.  HSSM also has 60 appointments scheduled over the next two weeks to take in surrendered animals from the community.  This does not include animals that are being brought in on a daily basis by local animal control officers. 

Needless to say, HSSM is in desperate need of adopters.  In an effort to get these animals adopted out, the Humane Society of South Mississippi is hosting multiple adoption specials throughout the month of August.
All cats and kittens are $10, Lonely Hearts (dogs that have been in the shelter for 30 days or longer) are $10 and all other dogs (puppies, VIPs, etc.) are 50% off.  As always, HSSM adoptions include the spay/neuter surgery, micro-chip, up-to-date vaccinations, free starter bag of Hill’s Science Diet food, free vet exam within 7 days of adoption, 30 days of free 24 hour pet watch pet health insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love!
Fun fact: August 17th is National Black Cat Appreciation Day so HSSM is celebrating by waiving the adoption fees for all black cats in the shelter from 10am until 6pm (8/17).  $5 tag fee required.  All cats must leave in a pet carrier.
