Adopt a shelter pet: sweet Liberty | Home & Garden
Pets Fur People, formerly the Humane Society of East Texas, has many animals who are looking for a home of their own. Shelter pets are special and deserve our consideration when we're looking for a new "family member."
According to HumaneSociety.org,
- Most pets end up homeless through no fault of their own—"moving" and "landlord issues" are the top reasons people give for relinquishing their pets, meaning shelters and rescue groups are full of wonderful, family-ready pets.
- Pets adopted from shelters and rescue groups typically cost less than pets purchased or even acquired for free—once you add in the cost of vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchip, dewormer, and other "extras" included in your adoption fee, you'll probably be surprised what a bargain an adopted pet really is!
Here's just one of many pets at Pets Fur People in Tyler.
Her name is Liberty, and she's a five-month-old domestic shorthaired cat. She has been spayed and is current on starting vaccinations, including rabies. She has been microchipped for identification purposes and when adopted will receive a free gift of 30 days of free pet health insurance.
Cats make great apartment pets, or pets for people who work outside the home all day. They are independent, yet loving, too.
For additional information call 903 597-2471 or check the Pets Fur People website – petsfurpeople.org. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Sunday 10 am until 5 pm - closed for lunch 1-2 pm. Pets Fur People is a selective admission animal sanctuary.
