Pet of the Week
Our pet of the week introduces himself or herself...
In the Sunday and Wednesday Times Record News. We also usually have one or two of our cats that are available for adoption at the Wichita Falls Petco on Kemp Blvd and some more cats at the new Petsmart. Check the local Noon news on Channel 3 on Tuesdays and Fridays, and on Channel 6 on Thursdays for other adoptable pets. Thanks to the Times Record News, Petco, KFDX , KAUZ and Time Warner Cable for helping showcase our pets! A special thanks goes to Wilson Office Supply for their help in getting the word out about our homeless pets.
The pet list is only a partial listing of the pets we have available for adoption at any given time. Please contact the shelter directly if you are searching for a particular breed. We do our best to keep the list updated, and to provide photos, but that's not always possible. If you are curious about a pet you find on this site, by all means, please come visit. You just might fall in love! WE DO NOT SHIP!
PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING AN ADULT PET. WE ARE OVERRUN WITH ADULT ANIMALS TURNED IN MAINLY BECAUSE THEIR OWNERS ARE MOVING. WE HAVE RECEIVED A LARGE NUMBER OF PETS FROM SAFB DUE TO THE RECENT DEPLOYMENTS. ADULT ANIMALS ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR A NEW HOME, AND THERE IS NO TRUTH TO THE RUMOR THAT YOU NEED A "BABY" PET IN ORDER TO BOND.
These adult pets are often housetrained, and have gotten past the puppy chewing stage and the curtain climbing kitten stage. But because they are adults, no one wants them. The majority of the adult animals that are turned in to us are euthanized due to lack of room, and the publics desire for baby animals, that they relinquish later because they act like puppies! Because people want pups and kittens, our adoptions drop off drastically during Spring and Summer, the "free" puppy and kitten seasons. It's a sad waste of life. Our pets are all spayed/neutered, current on shots, heartworm and Feleuk tested negative, wormed and microchipped. Adoption fees are $105 for dogs and $75 for cats, For puppies & kittens that are to young to be spayed or neutered we add an addtional $100 deposit that is refunded to you once the animal is old enough to be spayed or neutered . If you are a responsible owner, the same medical treatment for your "free" pup or kitten would cost much more!We are also on Petango.com if you don't see what you are looking for on Petfinder check out this page as well it tends to be more up to date. Hope you can find a new forever family memeber.
