When your pet wants to get petted, it doesn’t matter to what time of the day or night it is. Apparently I’m a great target at around 4am. While I’m enjoying my random dream, one of our cats will decide that she loves me and must have my attention NOW. It’s generally followed up by her prancing out of the room in the hopes that I’ll follow her. She’s pretty smart but I know what she’s up to. She wants one of the kitty treats that we keep in an upper cabinet. Not all cats have someone to pester at 4am, 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.

Lola is a small, adult, female, short hair cat. She’s a couple of years old so she has some maturity, but she still enjoys playing and having fun. Like many cats she’s a little shy at first, but it only takes her a moment to warm up and she’ll be hanging out with you while you’re watching TV, cleaning the house, or taking a nap. She’s spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Lola would love to find her forever home and get to know you and your family, so make plans to swing by to meet her!

Rusty is a small, young, male Shepherd/Boxer mix. He has lots of energy and loves being around people. He’ll play fetch with you, take walks with you, greet you when you come home, and take a nap with you when he gets tired out. He’s up-to-date on shots and heartworm tested and on preventative. Rusty would like to spend his time with one family and can’t wait to meet new people, so stop by to introduce yourself and play a little fetch with him!
