  • Cherokee

    Cherokee was seized by the Warren County Sheriffs Office and the Vicksburg Warren Humane Society on February 12, 2009 .Cherokee had surgery at MS state University to speed the recovery of her leg in June of 2009- We intended to place Cherokee where no harm would ever would be inflicted again and in November of 2009 the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch -Sanctuary in Texas accepted her. Plans were to transport her during Spring of 2010 - her leg reinffected in lte April and she was taken to Dixie Equine where Dr.Donnie Vice x-rayed her leg and found ridges and crevices deep within her bone . According to Dr.Vice this infection will reoccur from time to time as long as it is detected quickly she will be fine - Since the Black Beauty Ranch has over 300 acres and their horses free roam the ranch was concerned about her leg reinfecting and it not being caught in time so she was no longer a candidate. Now she lives at the shelter- She is our base horse so when we seize new starving neglected horses they are not alone. She has become the shelter mascot and has her own show which we call the Cherokee show .

  • We are having an unbelievable number of newborn kittens brought into the shelter. Before you assume a newborn kitten is abandoned, make sure there is no sign of a mother cat. Healthy looking kittens probably have a mom somewhere near by, but she won't show herself with you still there. Kittens that have a mom have a far better chance than those who are bottlefed.
  • Call 1-866-901-7729 toll free for information about low cost spay or neuter for your pet.

    I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal and I was angry. "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?" God was silent for a moment and then spoke softly, "I have done something," was the reply, "I created you."

    Who We Are

    We are a group of people that love animals, who for all our faults and differences come together for one thing...to do the best we can for the welfare of the animals.

    Our goals at the Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society are to rescue animals from abuse and neglect; to educate pet owners about proper animal welfare, to promote spaying and neutering to avoid over-population and abuse; and to bring people and pets together for the benefit of both.

    Adopting a friend

    To adopt your new pet, you will need to come to the shelter and fill out our application form. Our adoption fee is $75.00. This includes a free vet check within 7 days of adoption, first shots, worming, and spay/neuter when the animal is of age. It is mandatory that you have your pet spayed or neutered. If the pet you adopt is already spayed or neutered the fee is $50.00 If you live outside of the Vicksburg area please include your city & state with your e-mail inquiries.
