GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - The director of the Humane Society of South Mississippi says she’s optimistic an agreement can be worked out between the society and the Gulfport Police Department.

The two sides have been unable to agree on what Gulfport should pay the Humane Society to shelter stray animals. WLOX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1w3STXe ) city officials say the city should build its own shelter. Humane Society director Tara High says that won’t save the city money.

At this time, the Humane Society of South Mississippi only takes what they call owner-surrendered animals — animals that can no longer be taken care of by their owners for whatever reason.
