Give a Wag! Gives to Gulfport Shelters

The Humane Society of South Mississippi carries with it a rich and turbulent history dating back to its inception in the 50s. Almost always carrying over its capacity, HSSM was always used to adapting to challenges; however, it was completely devastated by Hurricane Katrina. From this tragedy, HSSM gained national attention and assistance, which boosted their live release rates tremendously and helped them become an open admission shelter. This shelter also runs the Love Train, a transport vehicle that helps move animals to partner shelters from locations facing unexpected disaster. Through its ups and downs, HSSM has become a beacon of hope for animals in the Gulf region.

Dedicated entirely to the rescue and rehoming of senior dogs, Underdog Animal Society operates entirely from a committed foster network. UAS rescues older dogs on the brink of euthanasia and places them until they find a forever home. Because of their limited space, this shelter is unable to take strays or surrendered animals, but they work with other local shelters to try and get these animals the help they need. This shelter is passionate about educating the community on the benefits of adopting a senior dog and operates a dog food pantry for low-income homes needing assistance.

Founded by one woman with a fervor for helping the little guy, literally, Tired Dog Rescue was started to try and help small breed dogs experiencing homelessness or abandonment. Over the years, TDR has developed programs to alleviate instances of homelessness and provided resources to resolve situational or behavioral circumstances that would prevent an animal’s surrender. Tired Dog Rescue provides veterinary care and socialization to all animals they rehome.
