Adopting a pet is a huge responsibility. Depending upon the animal, you may be committing to a decade or two, or in the case of certain birds – a lifetime. Taking on a pet requires more than just putting food in the bowl, it also means you’re responsible for play, affection, veterinary visits, and grooming, among other things. Yet adopting a pet can be one of the most rewarding things you ever do, and having a pet in the home is fantastic on many different levels. Some pets don’t have a permanent home, 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.
