Who are we?

The Humane Society of South Mississippi (HSSM) is the largest animal welfare organization in the state of Mississippi. We are committed to ending pet overpopulation and homelessness, and our dream is to make South Mississippi a community in which no adoptable pet is ever euthanized.

100% Non-profit

Contrary to popular belief, HSSM receives no “trickle down” funding from any national animal welfare organization or any local, state, or federal governmental funding. We depend on the generosity of our community to provide the high quality services and compassion we are renowned for.
