When it comes to adopting a dog, often times people and families are looking for a puppy or a younger dog to adopt and call their own. Older dogs oftentimes get overlooked when people are selecting a dog to adopt, but older dogs make excellent pets just like their younger counterparts.

Take Buck for instance. Buck is a ten-year-old Labrador/Retriever mix that weighs about eighty pounds, he has loads and loads of love to give and he's just waiting for the perfect family or individual to come along and adopt him so he can give it all to them.

Buck has been in the care of the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler since July 2022. Don't let his age discourage you from meeting Buck and falling in love with him.

Buck will go home with a starter kit of food, a collar and leash and a certificate for half-price basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Buck call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website. Pets Fur People requires a completed adoption application before a meet and greet can be arranged. Check out the animals that are available for adoption. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 am until 5 pm - closed for lunch 1-2 pm. The Humane Society’s Pets Fur People is the only brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter in East Texas. Pets Fur People offers routine vaccinations, except for rabies, to the public for dogs and cats. Follow Pets Fur People on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Please be a responsible pet owner - spay or neuter your pets. Donations are appreciated.
