Everyone is invited to come out to the Jackson County Animal Shelter this weekend to help our furry friends on the Coast! Some of the News 25 team will lend a helping hand at this year’s “Clear the Shelter” event. Adoption fees will be waived at the Jackson County Animal Shelter all day long from 10 am to 5 pm this Saturday, August 17, but it’s not too soon to find a compatible four-legged companion for your home!
We start out our weeklong drive featuring Melvin, a 2-year-old lab-terrier mix that came in as a stray in mid-June at the shelter in Gautier. Melvin enjoys playing, but likes cuddling even more! Melvin also plays well with other dogs, so stop by the Jackson County Animal Shelter in Gautier and check him out before he’s snatched up!
You can also make donations to help our furry friends in need at the shelter. Gautier Family Dental Group is sponsoring “Pay up for Pets,” and throughout the entire month of August will match your donations at the Jackson County Animal Shelter up to $5,000!
Stay tuned all week long as News 25 features a special pet from the shelter leading up to Saturday’s big “Clear the Shelter” drive. We hope to see you there!
