Our puppy Bingo rescued us when she was just 3 months old. She's now 10 months, has completed a training class, and is such a joy to have in our home. She's energetic, funny, playful, smart, and sweet. We're so lucky! This photo shows her in her usual pose - with a toy. Thank you so much for being there for her -and us.
I wanted to send you a few pictures of our Gabby (Gabriella Bridget Isabelle, formerly Honey). She is such a sweetie! She seemed right at home here from the moment we brought her in the door.
I firmly believe Honey/Gabby was meant for us. We had planned to adopt through As Good As Gold Golden Rescue and had put in an application with them and were not looking anywhere else. An old friend and neighbor of mine sent me the link on Facebook to Honey at your Hinsdale Humane Society, and everything seemed to just fall into place after that -- of course, with your help. Thank you so much for helping us become a family. We will love Gabby and take care of her forever.
I adopted Freddy, a beautiful Rottweiler mix, from HHS in October 2002 when he was 6 months old. I was looking for a companion for my then 4 year old Chow/Shepherd mix. I found him on Petfinder and instantly fell in love. When I arrived at HHS to see if he would be a good fit, he wriggled all his 60 lbs into my lap and gave me and my friends tons of kisses. He was such a joy and I happily took him home to his new "sister". They became inseparable buddies. He grew to be 105 lbs of sweet, snuggly puppy who loved to ride in the car and greet us with barks and "stubby wiggles" whenever we would come home.
This past July 2013, Freddy was diagnosed with cancer, and he lost his fight on December 30, 2013. It was one of the hardest days of our lives. We never knew a more loving, smart, and loyal dog. He was never far from my side. He was such a part of our lives and our family, it will be hard not to miss him everyday. We are grateful for your organization helping animals find forever homes, just as you did when we found Freddy. He was an amazing friend who will be missed.
I wanted to touch base with you to update you on "Willy", now known as "Dasher." We absolutely love him, and he quickly assimilated into our family. Besides our 5 children, we have a 13 year old Calico cat, "Cleo", a Golden Retriever, "Rosie", and a black Lab, "Conan." Cleo is, slowly but surely, getting used to her new friend. The dogs love him, especially Rosie. Dasher has such a sweet, easy going personality, and we cannot thank you enough for the gift of him.
