As one of the founding members of the Tunica Humane Society, I can honestly say that our success has far surpassed my hopes and dreams for this organization. It is amazing what a few individuals can accomplish when they are truly passionate about what they are doing.
We started with nothing, no money, no shelter, no support from our local government. In just over two years, the Tunica Humane Society has literally transformed our community and how we treat stray and abandoned animals. We are now a kinder, more humane community and for that I am extremely proud.
The Tunica Humane Society treats every animal the same, one is no more special than the next. All of our animals receive quality medical care and every animal that comes into our care gets a second chance at life. We aggressively rehabilitate our animals and we aggressively seek quality, loving homes for every one of them. It is devastating to us when we get an animal that we cannot save.
I have learned from my experiences of working for the Tunica Humane Society that you should never be afraid to ask for help. The worst that can happen is that you will come up against indifference. And for those hardened individuals, I feel extremely sorry. Because helping someone that cannot help themselves or speak for themselves is one of the most rewarding gifts in life. Whether if be man or animal. God intends for us to care for others and that is what the Tunica Humane Society is all about.

I would like to see the Tunica Humane Society reach a level of success where they could have paid employees and not have to depend solely on the dedication of their volunteers.
