I am good with dogs.

PEANUT's Story...

update:  April 2014  
PEANUT'S needs are very simple. Give her a toy to play with and she is good for hours. Especially one that squeaks! This has to be one of the happiest little dogs at our shelter. She doesn't even know she is homeless. We have had Peanut since she was a puppy and it would be wonderful to finally find her forever family. We get so discouraged at times and then we have an adoption like Pinkie's last week and it gives us hope again for all of our dogs that have been at the shelter for a very long time. Somewhere there is a Happy Ending for Peanut. Until then, she is happy as a lark with a squeaky toy...

Peanut came to us from the most horrible, inhumane living conditions. Yet when shown kindness and given security she blossomed and in no time at all was the happy, energetic, carefree girl we have today. Peanut has unbounded energy. If she can run somewhere rather than walk by golly she is going to run. She absolutely needs a family with children to play with outside. Or if you like to jog every day this girl will be your for a marathon? This girl will be your companion. And then we expect she will have her kibble and settle in on your lap like the sweet girl we know she is. Peanut is making up for the time she lost in her previous circumstances. She is a girl and this girl just wants to have fun. And a family. Fun and a Family. That's the ticket.

About Tunica Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Tunica Humane Society desires to improve the quality of life for all animals in Tunica County by aggressively pursuing a high quality, low cost spay-neuter program. We are dedicated to saving the lives of all animals who are endangered, neglected, abandoned or abused. It is our hearts desire to see Tunica become a "NO KILL" model community in a world where over 5 million dogs and cats are destroyed every year simply because they are considered "disposable".
"Lassie, Cleo, Rin Tin Tin, and Toto don't show up in a rescue shelter. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely trained, or perfectly behaved dog or cat. We get leftovers. Animals that other people have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized, ineffectively "trained" and badly treated. Most rescue dogs and cats have had it. They've been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They've lived a crate, or in the basement. They're scared, depressed, and anxious. Some are angry. Some are sick. Some have given up.

But the Tunica Humane Society will not give up. We will never give up on an animal. We know that they are living beings, with a spirit, a heart, and feelings. Our animals are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as the next Westminister champion. So...please, please don't come to rescue a dog or cat in the hopes of getting a "bargain" or indeed of "getting" anything. Come to the shelter to give, to love, and to save a life and to mend your own spirit. For rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this...a rescue dog or cat will make you a better person." UNKNOWN

At the Tunica Humane Society, our goal is to do the best adoption possible...matching you with a pet that will become a lifelong member of your family. To ensure the best possible match between adopter and pet, we ask that you read and understand the information provided regarding our adoption policies and procedures. You will be asked to sign a legal contract when adopting your pet and you must pay an adoption fee/donation. The fees go directly to our rescue group to help us save more animals. Thank you for opening your heart and considering adopting a shelter dog. By making this commitment, you have not only found a friend for have saved a life. If at any time you cannot keep the dog, you MUST return it to the Tunica Humane Society and not to another individual or shelter.
