A woman in Texas made her way into the news this week because she shot her husband in the stomach. She did so because she claims he was threatening her cat, and she was simply protecting it. People protect their animals because they're like little members of the family. We provide for them and love them, and they provide for us and love us in return. You might be annoyed that your cat left a dead mouse on the back porch, but it's really just their way of feeding us. Gross, I know. Some pets don't have a person to provide for and are looking for a permanent 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 out online here or call 940-855-4941. They’re located at 4360 Old Iowa Park Road in Wichita Falls.
