My cat likes crawling all over me each morning at around 4:30am. I tell myself that she’s just giving me love, but in truth, she wants me to get up and give her snacks. While it’s annoying to me, I still find that she’s adorable, and after a few minutes of her purring and head butting me, she’s ready to once again go back to sleep. At that hour, I’m happy to follow suit. Regardless of the occasional interruption of sleep, I really feel that our cats enrich our lives. They’re constant companions who don’t judge, and I’m happy to have them around. Some pets don’t have that love and support, 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.
