My parents owned a poodle while I was growing up. She was definitely my mom’s dog, following her everywhere. When Mom would leave the house, the dog would sit at the window and cry, much like a toddler. She was zealously loyal to Mom and the best seat in the house was with her, unless she was being bribed with a treat. Not all pets have someone that they can follow everywhere, 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.
