Southern Cross Animal Rescue to open no kill shelter

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The folks at the Southern Cross Animal Rescue are grateful this Thanksgiving for a large donation that will allow them to open a new no kill animal shelter.

Community Bank has committed $150,000 toward the purchase of a facility on Highway 184 East near the Powers community. The building must be converted into a shelter. It will have space for 55 to 80 dogs and eight small cottages for cats and kittens. It also has space to build kennel runs on the property.

In order to get the shelter up and running, Southern Cross is looking to the community for assistance.

"Hands on help would be great and bringing supplies by would be fantastic," said Heather Chandler Williams. "They can mail donations to P.O. Box 2007, Laurel, Ms. 39942. They can also make donations at the North Jones Animal hospital and on Pay Pal on our web site and facebook page."

If all goes well, the shelter could open in a few  months.
