Lost & Found

The Humane Society of South Mississippi (HSSM) is the largest animal welfare organization in South Mississippi. Our primary service area is Harrison County, but over 15% of the pets who enter our doors are from other areas.

All Animal Control agencies within Harrison County bring stray dogs to HSSM. And if a community member has picked up your pet, odds are it ended up here too! If you’ve lost your pet, please refer to HSSM’s Lost Pet Listing to see if your pet is here, and then read through HSSM’s “I Lost A Pet” tips to increase your chances of reunion with your pet!

As an open-admission shelter, HSSM will accept any pet brought to us by community members. Please visit HSSM’s “I Found A Pet” page for what to do if you’ve found a pet, but please consider HSSM your last resort, as we often find our shelter overcrowded meaning more illness and higher euthanasia rates in our shelter.

HSSM’s Lost & Found operations help reunite hundreds of lost pets with their owners each year.
