Adoption Stories


We were happy to see you at the Morton Arboretum "Tails on Trails" event in September 2014. I brought our adopted dog Lincoln (formerly known as Aaron) by your booth to visit his friends at the Hinsdale Humane Society.  Attached is a photo taken of Lincoln by Furry Expressions at the Morton Arboretum.

Lincoln has been a joy and a great dog.  He is now about 60 pounds, loves to be around other dogs, gets excited when he meets new people. He gets two walks each day (both one hour in length) in the rain, snow or heat, and has easily fit into our family!  Kym was a terrific obedience instructor and we're starting to investigate Therapy Dog Training for Lincoln.  

We adopted Lincoln in January 2014 and are close to celebrating our 1-year anniversary.

Zoey & Hazel

My wife and I adopted 2 kittens, Ashley and Dusty, last week. As promised we have attached some photos of them in their new home. They are very playful and adorable. Their new names are Zoey and Hazel.

Jerry & Kramer

We just wanted to send a note to say thank you. We are grateful for the hospitality you provided us in our brief stay at HHS this month.

Things are great in our new home!  We eat, sleep, get lots of pets and there is tons of room for us to play and chase each other!

We are happy as can be!  Well it's nap time so we need to go, but we wanted to wish you all Happy Thanksgiving!!

Jerry and Kramer (formally known as Calvin and Hobbes)

PS:  these guys are doing great!  So glad I stopped over to meet them and fall in love. They are adjusting so well in my house!  I am truly grateful for all you guys do.  Thanks so much!!


My wife and I adopted a Bassett hound on 3-14-2012. We were originally looking for a bulldog, but fell in love with one look at Otto, who we now call Stosh. Stosh has had many issues in the first couple of years but my wife has worked wonders with him and he has become quite a great dog! He gets along very well with kids and loves just about every dog he sees.

Your staff is number one with us!


It has been 1 year now since we adopted Snickers and he came into our home and straight into our hearts. He adjusted very quickly and everyone that meets him tells me what a great dog he is. He's happy, friendly, fun, and very well behaved. We love him dearly and spoil him rotten. Thank you so much for matching him with us - he's is truly the perfect dog for us.
