When I was a kid I would get jealous that our Poodle didn’t want to hang out with me, but would instead choose my mom. Peaches was fiercely loyal to my mom, and would follow her anywhere. It’s not that the rest of the family couldn’t pet her or spend time with her, but when my mom entered the room, the dog would stop whatever she was doing and find that lap to lay down in. Now that I’m an adult, I find that I still get jealous of my cats choose to sit with my husband instead of me. Yet I can sleep soundly knowing that I’m their favorite. No really, I am. Not every pet has a person they consider a favorite, 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 a 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.

Amber is a small, adult, female Poodle mix who is primarily apricot in color. She’s a little shy at first but she warms up quickly and she loves hanging out with people. She’s 7-years-old, so she doesn’t have that puppy energy, but she still gets in the mood to play and have fun. She’s spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Amber would love to find her forever home and you might be the perfect fit, so swing by to meet her now!

Venus is an extra large, adult male cat. He likes naps, chasing after bugs, relaxing in a warm lap, and getting a scratch under the chin. He’s really good around people and loves getting attention, and isn’t the type to run and hide as soon as someone comes home. He’s neutered, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Venus is a great pet and can’t wait to have a second chance. Stop by to meet him!
