Pets get shy, just like people do. A friend of mine brought home a new kitten this week and was convinced the cat hated her because he wouldn’t come out from under the table. He just needed an adjustment period and now he’s all about snuggling with my friend. Some pets don’t have a person to snuggle with at night, 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.

She’s a shy kitty but she warms up quickly and she likes to check things out before she jumps in to play. She’s up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Scarlet Kitten is looking forward to her forever home and can’t wait to meet you. Stop by to introduce yourself!
