When a family makes the decision to adopt a dog or a cat from a Tyler or Longview, Texas animal shelter, they are making a lifelong decision and commitment to that animal. Quite often when a family begins searching for the perfect pet for their family they are often looking for a puppy or a younger dog that can grow up with the family. They just love the energy, playfulness, and fun that a young dog brings. However, there are some older dogs that are just as fun and energetic!

If you're considering adopting a dog, you might want to pay the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler a visit soon because they have a cute Catahoula Leopard that is available for adoption. Buddy is an eight-month-old pup that is still in his bumbling puppy stage. Executive Director Gayle Helms says Buddy's breed is extremely affectionate, loyal, and gentle with their family.

Now Buddy weighs about 45 pounds and loves the company of other dogs and cats. He is still very energetic and is looking for a fenced-in yard to run and play in.

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

For additional information on adopting Buddy 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 East Texas's oldest brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter. 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.

Here are some examples of high-quality parking we've seen around town.
