From shelters to foster and adoption groups, there are many different options when you are looking to add a new four-legged member to your family. Every week Townsquare's Pet Patrol, brought to you by Midtown Animal Hospital, highlights adoptable pets from across the Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas areas, hoping to find homes for shelter pets from throughout the region.

This week we are highlighting animals from 12 shelters, and hope to add more as momentum builds for this project. We will also be featuring information on upcoming events at our local shelters, as well as bringing you information on upcoming fund raising activities for these organization.

The Pet Patrol is brought to you by Midtown Animal Hospital. We would also like to thank Just 4 K9s and Kitty 2, your home for grooming supplies, as well as all of your pets' needs, from food to beds to toys. Please remember to spay and neuter, and of course to adopt, not shop!

    This week our featured pet of the week is - Samuel L Jackson! Samuel L is a black pygmy goat. He loves children and loves to play in the grass and trees. He was brought in as a stray animal and no one came to claim this cutie pie.

    He is now neutered and is doing a decent job of keeping the part of the yard he is in cleaned up. His favorite thing is when volunteers go out and play with him so he can post up and chase but he has never hurt anyone. Come see Samuel L Jackson or any of our dogs and cats to find the perfect pet for your home.

    If you are interested in meeting Samuel L. come visit him at the shelter. You can reach us by phone at 940-552-5373 or by email at whs76384@gmail.com. To put an application on any of our animals please visit www.wilbargerhumanesocietyvernontx.org
