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

Life's a Beach for Higgins

We here at East Mississippi Animal Rescue could never thank you enough for your continued support of our cause. GlobalGiving has allowed us to reach so many gracious animal lovers than ever before and we value your commitment to our organization. Your generous donations allow us to help animals that may not have had any other chance. Today, we want to tell you about Higgins, a 6 month old Aussie/Shepherd mix, and show you how your support and donations help make a difference every day.

Higgins was found in a field, lying helpess and alone. He had a gunshot wound to his leg and was unable to move. He was rescued, brought into our care, and began his journey to a happy ending. Despite his physical condition, Higgins was gracious and loving. It was as if he knew he was in the hands of people who would take care of him. We fell hard for him instantly. Higgins made his first trip to the veterinarian to get a complete and total check up, including vaccinations and a neuter surgery. Everyone at the vet's office loved him! It was during this visit to the vet that we found out Higgins's leg was unable to be saved; the vet had no other option but to amputate. Following his surgery, Higgins made a speedy recovery. He was up and moving without a care in the world! Once he was fully healed and ready to be adopted, he was posted online and and found his happy ending soon after! 

Higgins now lives in beautiful Miramar Beach, Florida. He enjoys long walks on the beach and listening to the waves roll in on the shore.

Zena's Happy Ending

Zena
Zena

A few months ago, in our June project report, we told you about Zena. Today, we'd like to share with you Zena's happy ending. Please read below what Ashleigh, Zena's mom, has to say.

Zena was pulled from animal control by EMAR in 2011. She was young and pregnant. EMAR gave her a safe place to have her babies- they were vaccinated, spay/neutered, and adopted- as was Zena. 

At some point Zena got away from her new home and was lost for a year. With help from the community EMAR eventually found Zena but it took 3 years of persistence (and lots of treats!) to catch her and bring her back. After seeing the vet we found out she had heart worms, so she was treated for that. She spent 3 months being a perfect angel in her kennel so I (Ashleigh- a volunteer) took her home to foster thinking she could just visit and get a little extra attention for a few weeks. 
Boy was I wrong! She adopted me the day she came to my house. She showed me unconditional love immediately that I had never gotten from an animal. She is a very loved and special member of our family now and we couldn't imagine a day without her. 
We are thankful to EMAR for not giving up on Zena! They could have easily left her out on her own, but they looked until they found her. And then they coaxed her for years before they caught her. Then they spent hundreds of dollars on heartworm treatment so that she could lead a long happy life once she found her forever family.
EMAR is so appreciate of our adopters, volunteers, and donors like you. During this giving season, please keep in mind how your donations can help animals in need, such as Zena. Remember to check us out on Facebook to see daily updates and adoptable animals!

"Love on Steroids"

Oliver 1
Oliver 1

Today we want to share with you Oliver's story. Oliver is a two-year-old Bassett Hound who found himself at the local animal control facility after his owner's death. Facing the fate of euthanasia, Oliver was pulled from the facility by East Mississippi Animal Rescue and soon began his journey to healing and love. Once in our care, your donations helped provide for his neuter surgery, vaccinations, and treatment for heartworms. Oliver's photo was shared with a fellow rescue group in New England and it was then that a special family saw his photo and fell absolutely in love. Unfortunately for Oliver, he suffered a minor setback during the week he was scheduled to begin his journey to his new home. He had complications from heartworms and required bloodwork and more medications. One week later, Oliver was ready to set out on the journey to meet the members of his forever family, who were anxiously awaiting his arrival. To sum up their feelings about Oliver, he is "awesome" and they describe him as "love on steroids!" We are so incredibly happy for Oliver and his family and wish them a lifetime of happiness together.

Your faithful support and donations allow us to continue to help more animals like Oliver. On Wednesday, September 16th, GlobalGiving is hosting their final "Bonus Day" of the year. They will be matching online donations made through their website at 30% until the $70,000 in matching funds run out. GlobalGiving will match up to $1,000 per donor, per organization. Please consider making a donation to our cause to ensure we are able to carry out our mission and help more animals like Oliver (and their forever families.)

Remember to visit our page on Facebook to stay current on happenings, success stories, and pets available for adoption at East Mississippi Animal Rescue.
