HSSM participating in ‘Empty the Shelters’ pet adoption event

The Humane Society of South Mississippi is partnering with the Bissell Pet Foundation to take part in the ‘Empty the Shelters’ National Adoption Event.

The Bissell Foundation is sponsoring the shelter, along with about 285 other shelters across 45 states, to help reduce adoption fees.

With this sponsorship, HSSM is currently offering $25 adoptions starting tomorrow through May 15th.

This fee includes the pet’s spay or neuter fee, their microchip, vaccinations as well as a free pet bed and a free bag of pet food.

As of now, the shelter has over 300 pets looking to be adopted.

With hurricane season coming up, they are hoping to send as many to forever homes as possible before the storms begin. HSSM Development Director Katie King said, “We’re really honored to be a part of this nation-wide adoption special through the Bissell Pet Foundation. They are huge supporters of animal welfare and their goal is to find them all a loving home, so we’re happy to participate with them in this adoption special.”

To learn more about the adoption special call the Humane Society at 228-863-3354.
