A boxer awaits its forever home in the DeSoto Animal Shelter, 1251 Humane Way in Nesbit. The shelter, part of DeSoto County government is seeking to find new owners for its animals, some abandoned and malnourished.  

Former DCSD Law Enforcement Explorer Seth Bonetti is all grown up now and has started working at the DeSoto County Animal Shelter as an animal care technician.

“We are proud to see our cadets growing up and moving up,” said Deputy Alex Coker with the DeSoto County Sheriff's Department.

“Christmas is just around the corner and there is no greater love than from an animal that loves you unconditionally,” Coker said.

“The DeSoto County Animal Shelter has an abundance of beautiful kitties, cats, dogs and puppies,” added Coker. “Go visit their shelter and find the one that warms your heart the most.”

The Animal Shelter is behind the Road Department Building at 1251 Humane Way in Nesbit. for more information call (662) 469-8004.

The shelter's hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. The shelter is closed on Sundays.

December is $10 Adoption Month. That price includes: shots, heartworm check, and microchipping.

“We only ask that you love them as much as they will love you,” Coker said. “Give them a warm place in the winter and a shaded cool place in the summer with food and water.”
