NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT                                               
   Tupelo Lee Humane Society

Animal neglect, abuse, and abandonment are very real issues that most of us prefer not to think about. The stories are certainly sad, but the services provided by the Tupelo Lee Humane Society often lead to a happy ending.

Since 1979, TLHS has been feeding, housing, and caring for the 6,000 animals per year that enter the shelter. Their mission is to promote humane treatment, prevent cruelty, provide education, and eliminate pet overpopulation.

Though TLHS partners with Lee County and the City of Tupelo and receives some funding from them, they operate primarily through donations and fundraisers. In addition to monetary donations, they have a wish list of much-needed items that can be donated, such as dog and cat food, metal food bowls, fleece blankets, laundry detergent, bleach, and toys. 

As an example of the work done at TLHS, consider the story of Sophie (pictured below). Sophie's hips are dislocated and have been for a while. Although she is on pain medication, she will need surgery to ensure that she can live a long, healthy life. The shelter has placed Sophie in foster care while they raise funds to cover the cost of surgery. Without help from TLHS, Sophie would have no hope for the quality of life she deserves.

Thank you to the Tupelo Lee Humane Society for the work you do to bring hope and love to our furry friends!
