When I’m feeling stressed out, my cats always seem to understand. They’ll sit in my lap, purr at me, and bring down the blood pressure. Studies have shown that animals do indeed bring down blood pressure and people with pets seem to generally have a positive outlook. Having a pet is more than a source for funny stories on the internet, they have real health benefits as well! Some pets don’t have a place to call home, nor do they have someone to help relax. 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 an 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.
