Humane Society offering dogs seized in Pass Christian for adoption
Some of the dogs that were seized last week at a house in Pass Christian are now available for adoption at the Humane Society of South Mississippi.
The animals were legally surrendered this week to HSSM. The group said in a Facebook post that the dogs are still adjusting and will be adopted out in groups as they become available to meet potential adopters.
“We are doing our best to not add to their stress and giving them the appropriate time and space they need before exposing them to multiple interactions,” HSSM said in its post. “We want to ensure the best possible outcome for everyone involved.”
All of the dogs have been examined, vaccinated, treated for fleas, ticks and heartworm and will be spayed or neutered and microchipped as part of the adoption.
“These dogs came to us terrified. Most of them have never seen anything outside of the four walls they were confined to or have even been outside,” HSSM said in the post. “They are slowly starting to come out of their shells and warming up to staff, but they are very unsure and timid of new people and surroundings. They have never received this type of care and attention previously.”
HSSM said in its post they are are hoping to have the animals adopted and give them a life better than the one they were living before the seizure.
“It is evident in their eyes that they now have hope of a better tomorrow, and we have made them that promise. We know there is a special person or family out there for each one of these pets. Please consider changing their life for the better and being their forever hero. Their unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship will be well worth the commitment.”
