Midsouth Animal Welfare Foundation is a foster-based rescue rising to the challenge of rescue in a county that has no animal services. There are no municipal shelters in Mississippi, and in many of the counties, there aren’t Animal Control Officers.

“What people need to understand is that they aren’t collectibles.” This was a comment made by Corinth City’s ACO, Stephen, in reference to the number of pit bulls that populate the shelter and that he picks up in his work.
