Humane Society celebrates Christmas in July

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The Humane Society of South Mississippi is decking the halls with red and green for the next two weeks. With the recent influx of animals at the shelter, the Humane Society is celebrating Christmas in July with special adoption prices, along with retail and thrift store offers.

This Monday, July 19, through Saturday, July 31, you can add a loving large dog to your family for only $50. And if you're more fond of cats, the Humane Society is waving the adoption fee for adult cats and asking for just a donation.

"There is a need right now with the seizures we've helped the Harrison County Sheriff's Department with. Plus, we helped The Humane Society of the United States last week with a seizure," said Jode' Braxton-Hignight. "We do have another influx of animals, so we want to give these guys a good second chance at life."

Santa is also making an early trip down South. Kids and pets can have their picture taken with Summer Saint Nick the next two Saturday afternoons from 2pm to 5pm.

Learn more about all the animals available for adoption at the Humane Society of South Mississippi by visiting www.HSSM.org.
