Pets know how to communicate with their people. My cats know that if they bug me enough, I’ll follow them to whatever it is they want. I may find that the water dish has run dry or they simply want a snack, but they will successfully convey to me what the issue is. Not all pets have a forever home and people they can communicate 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.
