BEAUMONT, Texas — Are you ready for a new addition to your home in the form of an adorable puppy, dog, kitten or cat?

If so here’s some info on how to adopt a pet from several organizations in Southeast Texas.

Be sure to watch 12News at Noon  and 5 p.m. weekdays to see our 12News Pet of the Day and you just might find your next best friend.

One of our 12News staffers adopted two adorable mixed-breed puppies in early June 2019 from the Humane Society of Southeast Texas after seeing one of them on 12News Pet of the Day.

"Hot Pie" and his brother, now named "Barley" and "Biscuit," are currently enjoying the good life at their new "furever" home!
