I wonder what cats would do if they had to get a job. How would anything get accomplished if they were sleeping all day? There’s a part of me that gets jealous when I see my pet snoozing in a sliver of sunshine in the middle of the afternoon, but I have thumbs so ultimately I’m better off. Yet even with all of their slumbering, they’re awesome to have around and the perfect companion while watching a scary movie. Not all pets have someone to sit with while they watch scary movies, 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.

Rusty Red

Rusty Red is a small, male, Chihuahua/short coat mix. He’s just over two-years-old, so he still likes to play but knows when to calm down. He’s sweet and gentle and loves being around other dogs, so he’s a great addition to your household if you already have other dogs. He’s neutered, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Rusty Red is looking for a new place to call his home and can’t wait to meet you! Swing by today!

Jazz is a lovely male tabby cat. He’s around two-and-a-half years old, which means that just like Rusty Red, he loves to play but he still knows how to handle himself as a good pet. He loves his naps, catnip, playing with crinkly objects, and chasing after a laser pointer. He’s neutered, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Jazz is looking for a second chance and a forever home and he would love to meet you to see if you’re a good fit!
