Southern Pines needs donations for rescued pets

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The staff and volunteers at the Southern Pines Animal Shelter are hoping you'll help them rehabilitate dozens of sick and injured pets who were seized from property in rural Pearl River County Tuesday.

Shelter staff said they assisted the Pearl River County Sheriff's Dept. in rescuing 30 dogs and five cats.

They said the animals are in poor health and many have heart worms.

They're hoping to get donations to pay for their care.

They also said some of the animals, including a litter of puppies, are now available for adoption.
