||Humane society gifts wraps for donations
TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — Volunteers from the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society rolled up their sleeves and wrapped Christmas gifts at Barnes and Noble Saturday.
This was the first year the humane society did this.
Volunteers said Barnes and Noble invited them to set-up shop in the store this year.
The gift wrapping was free, but of course, the humane society was taking donations as they wrapped.
"We have so many animals in need right now, and we're just doing our best to take care all of them," humane society Executive Director Donna Jarrell said. "We have almost 300 animals up for adoption at the shelter currently."
Jarrell said the humane society has taken in 80 animals this week alone.
