The Humane Society of South Mississippi in Gulfport has been named one of the top ten rescue partner shelters in the country. Chosen from thousands of animal shelters from coast to coast, the location on Highway 49 is being recognized for its efforts in rescuing our furry friends. Krystyna Schmitt, Marketing Specialist for the Humane Society of South Mississippi, says, "Last year, we took in 104 small breed dogs from a Tylertown, Mississippi puppy mill. They called it the House of Horrors Puppy Mill." These large rescues and an ongoing partnership with the Humane Society of the United States helped the Gulfport shelter earn the high honor.
