Southern Pines Animal Shelter is an open admission shelter in Southern Mississippi. While Southern Pines contracts to serve three local communities, because of the large need in our area and a lack of resources in many communities, Southern Pines serves a 14 county area. Our goal is to not only help the animals in our care find their happily forever afters, but also to reduce the large number of unwanted pets being born every year by operating a low-cost spay and neuter clinic.
Only five years ago, Southern Pines had a live release rate of 29% and sky-high intake numbers. Over the last several years, we have changed everything to save more lives than ever before. For the last 5 months, we have reported a live release rate of over 90%. This is thanks to the innovative new programs, life-saving partnerships, commitment to spay & neuter, and unending support of our community. The cost of saving lives is so high, especially when the animals in need are fighting to overcome illness, neglect, and injury. We cannot do the work we do alone, and we know it will take each of us to make a difference. But together, we ARE making that difference. Please consider making a donation, hosting a fundraiser, and helping us to raise the funds to save the lives of the voiceless, innocent animals in our care.
