Adoption Stories


I adopted Penelope from your shelter 7 years ago and I can't imagine life without her! Thank you for all you do to get deserving pets happy homes!


I adopted by best friend Mr. Pup 893 on August 9th and the staff was so nice and friendly. You could tell they truly love what they do. "Dodger" is doing great and turning out to be a great puppy! He's potty trained already and a very smart, friendly puppy. He plays well with other dogs and has made me very happy. I lost my father on March 9th so he didn't know I adopted Dodger on August 9th. My dad loved dogs and we always had dogs; he had 4. He kept asking when I was going to to get another one and I feel he brought us together. Dodger has brought some happiness back in my life and was really what I needed. I love his long legs :-). He looks bigger in pictures, but has gotten a little bigger in real life too. Thank you for being so caring and all you do for the animals.


It's been just a few weeks since Fiona (aka SweetPea) and I adopted each other -- I've gone from having a 90 pound lab to a 16 pound rat terrier, but when you're my age, it's a good change. She's easy to train, is very lovable and affectionate, eats GREAT, and has never had an accident in the house yet. Fiona is amazingly well housebroken, good natured, she even tolerates my 2 cats. She was spayed a week ago today, is doing very well, and I just want to thank you for having such a wonderful staff that helped me choose her and explained everything. Alan, your staff member, was so patient and kind to us. Thank you for your wonderful facility.  I have already recommended Hinsdale Humane society to two friends who are dog-looking. 


George (now Cisco) is doing great! A wonderful addition to the family. We could not have asked for a better dog. He is starting obedience training on Sunday. He's a funny dog and doesn't like the usual dog treats, just Stella and Chewy. Champagne taste!

Thanks for all of the helpful website information. You guys are terrific!


Three years ago we adopted a wonderful 8 year old cat named Mortimer. We wanted an older cat because we are 72 and 76 years old now and Mort is 11. We do not want our sweetheart to ever be homeless again. Mort is the most loving cat. He loves to be near me. He plays with his toys, loves being brushed and has lots of kisses to share. He is not too fast and not too slow, especially when it comes to supper time. My reason for writing is to encourage Seniors to consider the companionship of an older cat or animal for that matter. We have so much in common really and we both want to have a friend close by. They don't run very fast and neither do we. Thank you.
