Our pets understand more than some of us give them credit for. My husband may roll his eyes at me when I speak to my cats in a ridiculous manner, but I figure they understand what I’m saying so it’s all good. Or at least I’ve convinced myself they understand. In truth, there are many words that pets understand, even if it is some weird, secret language between the pet and their owner. Some pets don’t have an owner to share a special language with, 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.
