Furry Friends Welcome at HELiX Starkville Student Apartments


With our new pet friendly units, HELiX Starkville Student Apartments now offer a home where you and your best friend can enjoy our many amenities together. To help you and your fur baby make the most of Starkville’s happening ‘petlife’ scene, we’ve put together a list of some of the stellar locations in the area where you and Fido can shop, play, and relax together:

Moncrief Dog Park

What’s great about this Starkville park is that it offers 2 separate fenced areas for small and large pups to roam off-leash while staying safe. It also boasts being the first of its kind in Mississippi and provides fresh drinking water, plenty of shaded areas, courtesy bags, and benches where you can take a break while your best friend has a blast. Moncrief Park is located on North Jackson Street, and the dog park is open 5am-9pm M-F, 7am-3pm Sat., and 1pm-5pm Sun.

Starkville’s Pet Store and Grooming Salon

Here’s a “purr”fect spot for cats to be coddled and pups to be pampered. This small, local business is committed to providing quality pet grooming, premium supplies, and comfortable boarding facilities for your companions. They even have doggie day care if your canine loves to interact with friends while you’re out and about. And the best part is that students receive a 10% discount off services!

Veterinarian Care

Deciding who helps you keep your pet healthy is a big decision, but Yellowpages provides help with a comparison list of Starkville area vets. Some even offer house calls to HELiX if your fur baby pulls a disappearing act every time you show them their carrier! One highlight on the list is MSU’s Companion Care Center, which offers affordable rates on services.

If you’re thinking of adopting a pet, the Oktibbeha County Humane Society has many dogs and cats that need a good home. Stop in to see them at 510 Industrial Park Road in Starkville Tue-Sat 11am-5:30pm, and contact us about bringing your new fur baby home with you to HELiX!
