Humane Society of South Mississippi seeing high numbers

The Humane Society of South Mississippi is experiencing an unusually high number of surrendered or abandoned animals this month.

They posted these pictures on their Facebook page this week, talking about the abundant number of intakes they’ve had from animal control officers.

HSSM says they took in more than 100 animals last week alone.

They’re using every single space available to shelter these pets, but they are asking families to please remember you have other options besides surrendering your pet.

If you feel you can’t care for your pets, the Humane Society wants you to know they have resources available like food, vaccinations, spay and neutering, microchipping, preventative care.

If you need help caring for your pet, please reach out to the pet resources department at 228-822-3824.
