SASSY's Info...

I am already spayed, good with kids, and good with dogs.

SASSY's Story...

SASSY is one of four puppies abandoned in Tunica County in the spring of this year.  She is the only one who resembles a border collie as the others are more golden retriever mix.  So, momma messed around it would seem.  Sassy is a beatiful girl.  She was able to live with a foster family for 2 months with her brother Chopper - but the family was no longer able to foster so they are both back with us at the shelter.  

Sassy did learn that she likes living in a real home a heck of a lot more than in a shelter.  Trust me...she does.  She is a little bit skittish for about 10 minutes with strangers until she sees you are OK...and if you are carrying a little roast chicken that time is cut down to maybe 1 minute.  

If you are interested in adopting this dog  please  give us a call.  

We know each of the animals entrusted to our care by name and we will be happy to tell you all about the personality and little quirks that make each animal so loved.   Our adoption fee for a dog is $100 and that covers all shots and vetting and spay/neuter.  Our animals are fully vetted before we send them off to their new family.

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.
