My cats know when I’m packing up to go on a trip. When they see my suitcase on the bed, they hover around me and seem a bit more affectionate, as if to keep me there under their feline spell. When I get home after being gone for a couple of days, they seem to enjoy my presence even more, which gives me a little ego boost. Not all pets have someone coming home to them, 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.
