When I moved to Wichita Falls, I brought two cats with me in my car. It was a long trip that was miserable for everyone involved. The cats hated being in their kitty carriers and cooped up, so they voiced their disdain for me by meowing the entire time. This, of course, made me miserable because they just. wouldn’t. stop. Despite their unhappiness, it was safer for them to be in their carriers for a number of reasons. Even if your pet is “yelling” at you because they don’t like their carrier doesn’t mean you should give in and let them roam free. Some pets don’t have someone looking out for them in that way, 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.
