My husband recently discovered that one of our cats likes to drink his water with ice in it. Just like a person, he wants his summertime beverage to be cold. Now that he’s been spoiled, you can find him by his water dish, meowing at me to save his water. Once he’s given what he wants, life is good. Pets can be very much like people. We like to have our drinks a certain way, we like to sit in certain chairs in our house, and we like hanging out with our family. Some pets don’t have a home or a family to call their own, 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 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.

Milo is a medium sized, adult, male cat. He’s really sweet and loves to play since he’s only about a year old, but he’s still laid back at the same time. He loves cuddling and getting scratches, and gets along well with other cats. He’s been spayed, is up-to-date on shots, microchipped, and dewormed. Stop in to meet this pretty kitty and you’ll see why he’s so awesome!
