JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Southern Cross Animal Rescue invited the public to visit its shelter in Jones County Saturday.   

A 4th Open House featured tours, food and activities for children like face-painting.

Organizers said the event gives local residents a chance to learn more about the services they provide for homeless pets. 

They also hoped some visitors might adopt some of their pets. 

"There's such a need for (SCAR) here in Jones County," said Anna Norris, a board member for Southern Cross Animal Rescue. "So, we're blessed to do what we do and we couldn't do it without the support of our donors and the public, that's how we're able to do everything is through donations." 

SCAR was founded about five years ago.
