Unusual number of lost dogs at Southern Pines

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The folks at Southern Pines Animal Shelter have been busy this week not only taking in homeless animals, but also trying to reunite an unusually large number of lost dogs with their owners. The shelter has several dogs that have obvious signs of ownership.

They are of different breeds and were brought in from all over the area.

Shelter management hopes pet owners who have lost dogs recently will drop by to see if their pet is at the shelter.

"We would like to reunite these dogs with their owners," said Virginia Cheatham, shelter manager. "Maybe some new people just came to our town and don't realize that there is a shelter available to search for your pet. We take animals from several different counties, out in rural areas and we would like everybody to remember that, too," said Cheatam. 

She reminds owners to identify their pets, either with a tag or a microchip.
