When you go to the Humane Society of Wichita County looking for a pet, you’re presented with a lot of choices. How do you choose one pet over another? You pet them, talk to them, spend time with them, trying to decide if they’re the pet for your home, when suddenly… you just know. One pet will stand out and fit you like a glove, and you’ll know that’s the pet you want sitting next to you while you watch Seinfeld reruns. While pets do get adopted from the shelter, there are always more coming in, and they’re looking for their forever home.

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.

Also, during the months of July and August, the Humane Society is working with a grant called “Beat the Heat.” It allows people to bring in their pets to get the spayed or neutered for FREE. Pet overpopulation is a real issue, and with this grant, a few more pets can safely be altered, and their owners don’t need to worry about shelling out money. If you’re interested, call 940-723-7387 and ask for the HSWC grant.

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 neutered, heartworm tested and on preventative, up-to-date on shots, dewormed, and microchipped. Come out and take her for a walk and get to know her, and you’ll know she’s right for your home!
