As the weather gets warmer, my cats want to spend more time outside. We’re fortunate to have a privacy fence so they can hang out in the back yard, and so far they haven’t figured out how to get out. They like watching the birds and squirrels, catching a bug now and then, and soaking up the sun before coming back inside to take a nap. Regardless of the weather, make sure to protect your animals against fleas, ticks, and heartworms. You want to keep those furry little pals around for as long as possible. Some pets don’t have their own back yard to hang out in, and that’s where you can help.

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.
