East Mississippi Animal Rescue

East Mississippi Animal Rescue started in 2001 and is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of abandoned animals in East Mississippi. Each animal is given basic medical care and, if at an appropriate age, is spayed or neutered. The adoption fee charged for puppies or kittens includes a spay or neuter fee so the procedure can be done when the animal is old enough. Adoption fees also help cover routine veterinary costs.Rescue expenses are funded by donations and adoption fees

Benson & the Poodles

Hello and thanks again from everyone here at East Mississippi Animal Rescue! We are so grateful to have such loyal supporters as you! Today, we want to tell you a little bit about some of the animals your donations have allowed us to help.

Benson, a Doberman, came into our care just recently. He had been run over by a car and had an injury to his foot. (WARNING: Photo is included and may be considered graphic to some.) His owner could no longer afford to care for him, so EMAR took Benson in and saw to it that he received the medical care he needed. Benson had surgery in which two of his toes were removed. He is getting better every day but still has a few more weeks of healing ahead. 

These two poodle-mix dogs were abandoned by their owner and taken to the local animal control facility. The staff at the facility asked if EMAR would take them into our care and find suitable homes. They were neglected for quite a while but now their lives are turning around. Both dogs have been fully vetted and are on their way to becoming a part of a very loving family. 

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to all that lies ahead. We are committed to helping the abandoned, abused, and neglected animals in our area and we couldn't do it without your help. THANK YOU!

Success Story: BG

BG
BG

Today, we'd like to tell you a success story that your support helped us write! Read on to learn about BG and his story of finding a forever home.

BG came from a hoarding situation in Alabama where he was living with 40 other dogs and cats. The owner of the home had been evicted and the house was being torn down. East Mississippi Animal Rescue took in approximately 20 dogs from this situation and placed them into homes. Due to socialization issues, BG remained in rescue, unable to be adopted. He was scared of almost everyone. It took a lot of work for anyone to gain his trust. In September, a very kind woman named Tammi fell in love with BG. She visited him at the rescue everyday for 2 weeks straight, ultimately earning his trust. They now live happily together. BG is Tammi's heart and he is such a happy guy! He's housetrained, has learned to play with toys, and has become a great little dog! BG has even learned how to smile!

August 2014 - Healing Hearts (and a Hip)

Beauregard
Beauregard

EMAR has taken in four dogs in the past month that have tested positive for heartworms, and one also needed hip surgery. Your donations are helping us to pay their vet bills! Meet the dogs you are helping below.

Beauregard: A regal bully breed pulled from Meridian's Animal Control Facility, it was obvious he had lived a rough life. We couldn't just leave him there, so EMAR pulled him. He tested positive for heartworms and traveled to his foster home in Jackson, MS. Sadly, Beauregard succumbed to his disease after a short time there, leaving us only with the comfort that he had known love in the last days of his life.

Yogi: A purebred Rottweiler left at Animal Control, he is fairly young and otherwise healthy. After finishing his heartworm medications, Yogi will be ready for a new home!

Sierra: Found along with her two puppies by a caring citizen of Meridian, Sierra was brought to EMAR in hopes of finding them all forever families. Her puppies will be available for adoption in a few weeks, but Sierra must undergo heartworm treatment before she will be ready.

Blake: Yet another gem found at Animal Control, Blake received a lot of attention when his shelter photo was posted on Facebook, but nobody went to adopt him. When his time was up, EMAR pulled him from the shelter and had him groomed, neutered, and tested for heartworms. He tested positive and had to undergo treatment. Our vet also discovered an old injury (likely the result of being hit by a car) and recommended immediate hip surgery. Blake is on "bed rest" for 6-8 weeks but has a potential home lined up for when he is fully healed!

Thank you so much for helping us care for these precious dogs. They bring so much joy to our lives and the least we can do is provide them health and happiness. Every donation helps and the dogs and volunteers at EMAR thank you for your support!
