These greatly honored department of our state government........is a DAMN JOKE!!! They are more about killing animals than saving them. Our family dog broke off it's runner and someone called the pound. We went to get our dog the same day. We were told a price, when we got to the shelter the price had doubled in just under a hour. They were talking about having to kill dogs because the couldn't find homes for these loving animals. They wanted more money before letting our dog come home. Since our dog had not gotten snipped There would be a $50.00 extra fee. So we had to leave our dog there for a few days til we had some extra money. We went back 9 days later. To find to WORST NIGHTMARE had come true. That our loved family dog was DEAD. They told use only five days, well they knew our dog had a loving home. Our dog was more than a puppy but a part of our family and a partner to our other dog. Not to mention $1.100.00 dog. So this department is not worth the drool these dogs leave on there table of death. I wish nothing but the worst to the humane society of South Mississippi aka animal killers. So everyone out there in South Mississippi beware the assholes don't care the animals they are more worried about money. Hope they burn in HELL.
