Very few things in life are better than owning a dog. Being a dog owner means you're going to be constantly showered with unconditional love. It doesn't matter how long you've been gone, one hour or all day at work, when you return it's nothing but excitement for them and for you. You can experience this joy and excitement when you meet and adopt Simon from the Humane Society's Pets Fur People in Tyler, Texas.

Of course, being a dog owner means you've got to be responsible too - spay or neuter them, feed them, give them clean water, keep them out of extreme elements, get them vaccinated and interact with them and keep them challenged.

When you meet Simon, you'll quickly learn he's a ball-loving, ball-chasing kind of dog. He's right at a year old and tips the scale at a healthy 40 pounds. He also loves to go on walks and to the dog park. Pets Fur People's executive director Gayle Helms believes Simon would make a great family dog because of his size and love for children.

Simon will go home with a starter kit of food along with a big fluffy dog bed, a collar and a leash. In addition, Simon will receive a certificate for half-price basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Simon 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.
