Challenge

More than 73,000 animals are euthanized each year in the state of Mississippi. Although we, along with other rescue groups in the state, are working hard to lower this number, pet overpopulation and abandonment is a growing problem. In addition to high euthanasia rates, Mississippi also has the highest rates nationwide of heartworm disease- a potentially fatal condition that is costly to treat, but can be prevented.

Solution

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
This project, carried out by East Mississippi Animal Rescue, will target pet overpopulation and the heartworm epidemic in Mississippi by providing veterinary care, including heartworm treatment and spay/neuter surgeries, to abandoned animals in the East Central region of the state.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide, promote, and enforce spay/neuter surgeries for all adoptions through our organization, which will impact the high euthanasia and pet overpopulation rates in Mississippi. We will provide treatment for animals diagnosed with heartworms, allowing them to live longer lives free from a serious, potentially fatal disease.
