The Humane Society of East Texas was established in 1963 by concerned citizens after they visited the City of Tyler’s 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 - Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. You're invited to bring your family and your pets out to visit with our adoptable animals.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $150 which includes their spay/neuter, microchip, and first round of vaccinations including Rabies. Cats are $130. When a pet is adopted, she/he will receive a free gift of 30 days of free pet health insurance. You are invited to go to our website PetsFurPeople.org and complete the pre-adoption application.
