What a Difference a Year Makes!
The Human Society of Wichita County wants to thank all of our loyal supporters for their many donations, the volunteers who helped us with the care of animals, adoption events, and help with construction projects and building repairs. We would also like to thank the individuals and families who chose to adopt a pet from our shelter, instead of from a breeder, giving a deserving companion animal a forever home.

Our Good Wishes for 2015
We acknowledge that individuals who work to improve the welfare of animals in our community as well as other rescue organizations in Wichita Falls differ in philosophies on how to care, foster, adopt, and unfortunately the euthanasia of these animals. But one thing we can agree on is that we are all trying to save as many of them as we possibly can. It is a daunting task for all animal shelters and rescue organizations everywhere.
Our wish for 2015 and beyond is that we support each other in our work to improve the lives of companion animals in our community.
