There is some debate as to whether or not animals feel love, but in my opinion they do. When you see your dog wagging his tail when you come home or see your cat rushing to greet you when the door opens, you can tell they’re happy to see you. Sure, you provide shelter and food, which creates a certain sense of loyalty, but when your pet comes to sit with you while you’re working on the computer or wants to hang out with you while you’re watching TV, it’s because they want to be there. Not every pet has someone to hang out 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.

Goldie is a medium size, adult, female Shepherd mix. She loves people, other dogs, and may even get along with your cat once she gets to know him. She’s a couple of years old so she still has a lot of energy, but enough maturity to know when to just chill. She’s spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Goldie would love to hang out with you while you’re watching television or taking a walk around the neighborhood. Swing by to meet her today!

Leo is a small, baby, male tabby cat. He has lots of energy to spare, but like many kittens, he loves nap time. He’s really friendly with new people and enjoys playing with other cats, and is always up to explore new places. Because of his age he isn’t neutered yet, but he’s up-to-date on shots, and heartworm tested and on preventative. Leo would love to come to your place and explore a whole new world, and is sure to love curling up with you on the couch. Stop by to introduce yourself!
