Dogs seized in Pass Christian available for adoption

Now to an update on the 69 dogs seized from a Pass Christian home one week ago.

All 69 dogs were taken in by the Humane Society of South Mississippi and a number are ready to take home for adoption.

News 25 stopped by HSSM today and met a few who are enjoying the simple things for the first time, like playing outside, belly rubs, and walking on a leash.

Because they received such a large number of dogs, the Humane Society is adopting them out in groups.

Athena, one of the dogs available for adoption, is heading home for a sleepover with a possible new family.

Kaile Kidwell, taking rescue dog home for sleepover, said, “We’re going to make sure she is sociable with my puppy at home which I’m sure she will be because she’s super sweet and if everything goes well, we’ll adopt her.”

Katie King with HSSM said, “We definitely want to stress that these dogs have come from deplorable situations and have experience neglect a lot of them have not seen anything outside of the four walls that they were living in. We actually introduced them to grass, leashes. Everything is brand new to them.”

All these dogs have all been vaccinated, examined, put on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, and will be spayed or neutered and microchipped as part of their adoption.
