The Humane Society of East Texas was established in 1963 by concerned citizens after they visited the City of Tylerís inadequate animal impoundment facility. In 2013 we changed our name to Pets Fur People. The focuses shifted to promoting spay and neuter options, educating the community, and emptying the kennels in a good way. The public continues to view the shelter as a public entity and is typically unaware that it receives no public funding or support from national organizations. All funding for the shelter is obtained through adoptions (18 percent), contributions (37 percent), and fundraisers (42 percent).
Come Meet our Pets:
The shelter is located at 1823 CR 386, Tyler, TX 75708 Animals are available for adoption Tuesday - Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The shelter has an off site adoption at the Broadway Square Mall the first Saturday each month and at Atwoods Home and Ranch the 3rd Saturday each month.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
