Hub City Humane Society To Host Free Adoption Day

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - If you are looking for a new pet, you might want to stop by the Hub City Humane Society Saturday. They are giving away some of their shelter animals at no cost.

"We're having our first 'No Pay Dog Day,'" said Virginia Cheatham, manager of the Hub City Humane Society.

That means, anyone who is approved can come by and adopt a pet for free.

"Generous donors can have donated money to offset the adoption fees of these pets," she said.

The Hub City Humane Society has taken in about 1,000 pets since they've opened earlier this year.

"All  of ours are fully vetted," she said.

Cheatham said they encourage adoption.

"There are millions all over the country that don't find homes, so it's very important to think about adopting a pet from a shelter instead of buying one," she said. "They leave with a new friend and a dog finds a home."

The Hub City Humane Society is located at 95 Jackson Rd in Hattiesburg. The event will last from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday.
