About City of Hernando Animal Shelter

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.

Come Meet City of Hernando Animal Shelter's Pets

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
