Adoption fee waived at the Humane Society of South MS
Have you been thinking about adding a dog or cat to your household? Well, right now may be the perfect time.
That’s because starting today until July 4th all furry shelter occupants at the Humane Society of South Mississippi will be free to adopt as part of a nationwide event known as ‘clear the shelters.’
The HSSM is partnering with the Best Friends Animal Society to find homes for ten thousand pets in 10 days and even though the special started today, people like Jakayla Trotter are already helping the cause. “We are getting a dog, a Chihuahua, I think. We are going to name it Baby. I am excited about getting a dog and playing with it and stuff.”
Katie King with the HSSM said, “Our specific goal for this shelter is 130 animals. This adoption promotion includes all animals in the shelter. Cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies, they are going to be fee waived adoptions and all you will be required to pay is the $6 tag fee.”
More than 270 other rescue groups across the country are offering fee waivers for adoptions over the next ten days.
