The Tupelo-Lee Humane Society was founded in December of 1979. This group of individuals wanted to bring more attention to companion animal overpopulation and replace the local "pound" with a true animal shelter. Both goals were accomplished. Today the society has approximately 500 individual, family, and corporate members.

TLHS currently contracts with and receives funding from the city of Tupelo to provide animal control (dog catcher) services for Tupelo. TLHS also receives funding from Lee County to take in stray animals that are brought to us by citizens from unincorporated areas of the county. There are no leash laws in the county, so we do not provide active animal control there. The Society also relies on funding from membership dues, donations, and fundraisers.

Dog/puppy adoption fee is $75.00
Cat/kitten fee is $65.00
The adoption includes: Spay/neuter,1st shot, bordetella for dogs, microchipping (with free registration) and up to 45 days of Shelter Care Insurance. Total value of over $200.00 in services.

Caring for animals more than could imagine

posted 4 years ago

This Shelter has proven something to me. I have been to a few and none compare to this one. They are caring for all animals (including what society considers an aggressive breed), they prefer to adopt the animal out than to put them to sleep. The coordinators are friendly and you can hear the love for the animals that they have just by the way they talk about them. This includes the people that work at the Spay / Neuter Clinic.

God Bless each and every one of these people that work at this shelter. They are ALL God's gift to the animals.

Pros: friendly, caring, loving

Cons: None

Making a lot with a little

posted 7 years ago

With the help of fund raisers such as art festivals, pancake breakfasts, a golf tournament and very, very dedicated volunteers this shelter has stayed afloat for many years. The future is bright and the people of Lee county are lucky to have this shelter.

Pros: Small budget--Big heart

Cons: Need much more funding or large corporate sponsor

We have been using Tupelo Small Animal Hospital for over 5 years now. We love it. The staff are very friendly and caring. They listen to what we have to say and treat our pets very well.

Dr. King is the best vet in Tupelo. He is very caring, he's a good listener, and he is not a quitter. I would recommend this vet to anyone who truly loves their pet.
