FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Hub City Humane Society has started its annual Fur Baby Angel Tree Program.

The organization is asking for the public's help in supplying some needed items for the animals at the shelter, or for their support through donations.

“They are like people, they need love and care, they need to eat and play and have treats just like we do as human beings,” Volunteer Dawn Gillis said. “We like to do that during the Christmas season and help them out a little bit.”

The public is invited to stop by veterinary clinics in Forrest and Lamar County, and pick a gift-ornament off of their giving tree.

Each ornament is an item such as cat and dog food, blankets, or pet safe toys. To donate the item, drop it back off at the clinic that you got your ornament from.

The organization also needs people who can be foster parents to the animals, or volunteers to spend time at the shelter.

The participating locations are All Animal Clinic, Panther Pet Hospital, Advanced Medical Care on Highway 98, Veterinary Associates of Hattiesburg, Pet Palace, Holland Veterinary Clinic, Davis Veterinary, Town and County Animal Clinic, and Hub City West.
