My pets have me trained. They’ll get me up before dawn just to follow them to the kitchen so they can get a cat treat. They know exactly how to meow at the back door to get me to open it. After they’re done taking a nap outside, they’ll stand at the door until I open it again to let them in. That cycle repeats itself quite often. After they’re done making me open doors for them, it’s off to the kitchen where they stand over their water dish. It seems they’ve taken a liking to ice in their water, so their plea for freshly iced water is then taken care of. Though I may grumble about doing these tasks for them sometimes, I can’t imagine life without them. Some pets don’t have a person to train and are looking for a home. 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 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.

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 outonline here or call 940-855-4941. They’re located at 4360 Old Iowa Park Road in Wichita Falls.
