HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Southern Pines Animal Shelter has partnered with Hattiesburg Habitat for Humanities in the new Habitat for Hounds program.
Habitat and Southern Pines are looking for groups or organizations to come in and help build dog houses that will be used to provide shelter to dogs in the community who otherwise don't have any. Once completed, the dog houses will be taken to Southern Pines who then will look to distribute them to dog owners who can't afford to purchase them.
"They will be provided free of charge to people who need shelter for their animal," said Ginny Sims, SPAS manager. "Our hope is that good pet owners who really just need assistance to keep their animals and out of a shelter and in a loving environment."
Groups who would want to help can contact the Hattiesburg Habitat for Humanity or the Southern Pines Animal Shelter at 601-544-6632.
