Pets Fur People celebrates open house

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) - The East Texas community is celebrating those who help our furry friends.

The East Texas Humane Society has renamed itself "Pets Fur People," and spent Saturday celebrating it's first open house.

It is also the organization's 45 year anniversary and staff members spent the special day with community members.

The executive director says new changes are positive steps for the organization.

"We have been the Humane society for 44 years. People I think have a misperception about humane societies and we now have a mission for being a ministry for people being helped by pets," says Gayle Helm, the executive director.
