Animal A.I.D. of Mississippi talks about plans to build an animal sanctuary

Animal A.I.D of Mississippi is a local South Mississippi dog and cat rescue in Pass Christian.

A.I.D. stands for ‘Angels in Disguise’ which is what they believe dogs and cats are. “Our motto is leaving the past behind. If we can help a dog overcome an abusive situation or one of neglect, then we’re all in.”

The group has a goal to raise enough funds to renovate and build a sanctuary on their property, but for now it is a dream backyard for any cat or dog. Volunteer Lyn Powers said, “We started with a play yard, we thought that was important because there are a lot of animals in the shelter. We do work closely with several shelters, a lot of animals in the shelter do exhibit kennel stress, so as much, as often as we can get them out and bring them to a place where they can run free off leash, have some activities, have a little down time from their little kennel environment, that’s what we want to provide.”

By going to their website, animalaidms.org, you can donate funds to their dog sanctuary, learn more about fostering or adopting a pet, and you can find out about their volunteer opportunities. “We believe it takes a village, so the more volunteers we can get to help us with our mission, helping our beautiful babies in this area, then the better off and more we can do.”
