Tag ‘Em! South Mississippi

The formula for the success of Countdown to Zero is simple:

Decrease Intake + Increased Positive Outcomes = More Pets Saved!

Each year, nearly 5,000 pets enter HSSM as strays. And less thanĀ 1,000 will be successfully be returned to their owners.

To assist in reducing the number of stray pets entering our doors and increase the chances of reunion for a lost pet and its owner, HSSM is undertaking an extensive educational campaign about proper pet identification, with the slogan: “Tag ‘Em! South Mississippi.”

HSSM is offering Tag ‘Em! South Mississippi pet identification packages for just $15. These packages include both a microchip and an engraved ID tag.

Tag ‘Em! is integral in reducing the overall number of pets entering HSSM. If HSSM can spend less time caring for pets who have owners looking for them, it gives us more time and more resources to put towards caring for and adopting out those who do not.

Of all the program offered by HSSM, the “Four Legs” of Countdown to Zero were chosen because of their ability for high-impact on the overall goal of eliminating the euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets in our community.
