When I go away on a trip, my cats seem to know it. While I’m packing my bag they’ll hang out, wander aimlessly from room to room, and cling to me in a way they usually don’t. When I get back from wherever I was, which is typically just a day or two, they might seem aloof and act like they don’t care, but they give me extra attention and I can tell they’re happy to see me. Whoever said as a blanket statement that cats don’t care about their owners must have not owned a cat. Some pets don’t have an owner to look forward to seeing, and that’s where you come in.

The Humane Society shelters pets, gets them the care they need, gives them the love they’re craving, and does their best to place them in permanent homes. Whether you’re looking for a lazy dog who prefers a quiet walk to play, or a cat who chases toys, chances are the Humane Society will have your perfect match.

May I present our pets of the week. If you’d like to see them in person or get more information on these pets or any other pets that the Humane Society has, check them out online here or call 940-855-4941. They’re located at 4360 Old Iowa Park Road in Wichita Falls.
