Buzz, Tuzz and Fuzz are three kittens who are waiting to be adopted and taken to a new home. They were found on Chapel Hill Rd. and brought to the shelter at six weeks old. They are now three months old and ready for their new family. Half-price adoption fees will end on August 31. For unaltered pets, the adoption fee is $35, which includes their spay/neuter and up to date vaccinations and wormer.
To learn more about the OCHS low cost spay/neuter program, “Pet PALS,” call the Humane Society at (662) 338-9093 or visit or email  Also, donations are needed for the Pet PALS program.  This program is vital because it prevents unwanted litters which are brought to the shelter.
The Starkville Animal Shelter is located at 510 Industrial Park Rd. in Starkville. The shelter is open weekdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. For spayed/neutered puppies and kittens, the adoption fee is $40. This fee includes the animals first round of shots, wormer and their spay/neuter.
OCHS is currently looking for foster families for special situations, including fosters for our accepted Homeward Bound puppies and dogs. If interested, contact Anita Howard at The shelter is currently seeking fosters for the Homeward Bound program. OCHS is also looking for dedicated volunteers. For more on how to help, contact Sherrie Wiygul at There is something for almost everyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals. 
OCHS would like to encourage pet owners to spay or neuter pets to help control the pet population.   
The shelter is always in need of supplies. Some primary needs are hand sanitizer, dog collars and leashes, paper towels, wet dog food, kitten food, cat food, dog and cat toys, dog and cat treats, disposable gloves. For a complete listing of the shelter needs please visit the OCHS website The shelter is still collecting clean aluminum cans. Donors can either drop the cans at the shelter or take them directly to Starkville Recycling on C.C.
