Hub-City Humane Society funds depleted, donations encouraged
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Hub-City Humane Society said it is completely drained of its funds this year. The organization took in more animals than their finances can provide.
The organization houses many of its pets for more than one month to encourage adoption and avoid euthanizing animals.
Vice President of the Board, Dr. Brenda Sumrall said the non-profit organization spends up with $27,000 a month to house all 150 animals.
"This year we had a lot of medical needs patients that we certainly do not want to put to sleep because we know we can place these guys in homes" said Dr. Sumrall.
She stated the summer months do not help the organization, it is constantly paying high electric bills to keep the animals comfortable.
"Our power bill runs over $2,000 each month, so it makes it really expensive" Dr. Sumrall said. "There is really no insulation with those so our air conditions run 24/7 all the time" added Dr. Sumrall.
The organization is hosting several events to help raise money, it can be followed on their Facebook page.
