With the holiday season upon us, pets are having as much fun with gifts and the tree as the rest of us are. Make sure you’re keeping your pet safe by not placing food items under the tree, because Scrappy might just break into that gift, eat it all, and get sick. Pet stores also offer up pet stockings, which may provide a much-desired treat for your furry friend. Not all pets have someone to buy them stockings, 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.
