A 2601 Elm Street, Hernando, MS 38632 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats, rabbits, small animals.
1 - 6 of 6 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We serve the growing city of Hernando, MS in Desoto County.
Our goal is to enrich the lives of the animals and citizens of our community. We do this by spaying/neutering & vaccinating all animals that come through our shelter, educate the public on animal issues and enforce the state and city ordinances in relation to animals.
You can also find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CityofHernandoMSAnimalShelter
Fill out our online adoption application using this link: https://www.adoptapet.com/hernando-animal-shelter/adoption-application
We review your application & verify that your current pets are up-to-date on vaccinations and current on heartworm prevention (dogs only).
If approved, we notify you within 1-3 days and set up a meeting between you and the pet you've chosen.
Our fees are normally $10 for all animals at this time.
We require an adoption contract which states that you'll care for the pet properly & return him/her to us if you can no longer keep him/her.
We're a very small shelter operated by the City of Hernando, which is largely operated by volunteers. We are physically located at 957 Hwy 51 in the garage behind Hernando Fire Station Number 2.
We are very dedicated to providing the very best care for our city's homeless pets and committed to educating the public about how to properly care for the animals in their families. We do all we can to keep pets in homes and out of the shelter. Because the south has such an extreme pet overpopulation problem, we try to relieve some of that pressure by transporting as many animals as possible to northern humane societies and waiting adopters.
Please contact us at 601-259-0374 for information about our adoptable animals. Until our new shelter is built, we are open by APPOINTMENT ONLY.
We hold adoption events at various locations in Hernando and are also at Hollywood Feed in Southaven the 2nd Saturday of each month. Then at the Petco in Southaven on the 4th Saturday of the month. We post information about our events on our facebook page at www.facebook.com/CityofHernandoMSAnimalShelter
