GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Last week, the Humane Society of South Mississippi helped Gulfport police rescue 29 dogs and a cockatoo from “deplorable” conditions. Since then, HSSM has been overwhelmed with requests to adopt the animals.

After eight days of evaluation and treatment, 18 of the animals are now ready to find their new forever homes.
