Some pets travel better than others. My cat loves hanging out in her kitty carrier, so taking her in a car isn’t a big deal either. She’ll kick back and go for hours without making a sound. Another of our cats is a completely different story. Just taking her to the vet is a test of patience, so you can imagine what it’s like when we moved here from several states away. When it comes time for us to move again, my husband is transporting the loud one. Some pets don’t have the chance to move with their families and are once again looking for a forever home, 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.
