We’ve allowed our cats to go outside for the past few years because we had a large privacy fence in the back yard that prevented them from roaming the neighborhood. Now that we’ve moved into a new place that doesn’t have such a fence, they’re not happy that we aren’t letting them outside. Laws are in place to keep pets securely on a leash, but it’s not only for people who might encounter the pets. Dogs and cats face a number of dangers when they’re let outside and allowed to roam free, so please consider options for keeping them in your yard should you let them outside on their own. Some pets don’t have their own yard to roam around, 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.
