Pets feel many of the same emotions as humans, though they may not show it in the same way. My husband has been out of town for work, and one of my cats is not happy about his absence. She’s been wandering around the house looking for him, and she’s been clinging to me more than usual. Not all pets have a favorite person 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.

Smooches is a small, female, Dachshund/Standard Long Hair mix. She’s just over 5-years-old, so she still loves to run and play, but she also knows how to act like a lady. She does well on a leash and loves taking walks, and she enjoys hanging out with you while you’re watching TV or just relaxing. She’s up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Smooches can’t wait to find her forever home and would be thrilled for you to stop by to introduce yourself. Find out if you’re a perfect match!

Oliver is a small, male, Siamese mix cat. He has seal point coloring and is a very pretty kitty. He’s a very shy cat and isn’t recommended for homes with young children, but once he warms up to you he’s a very loving cat. He’s spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Oliver would love to have a permanent home with people who understand him, so stop by to see if you’re a good match for each other!
