Adoption Stories


We adopted Wilson (a schnauzer mix) on Dec. 26th. We wanted to let you know that he is such a wonderful dog and he is adjusting very well. We absolutely love him! He has been very social, meeting the neighbors, friends, family and our favorite pet store owner where he has gotten some new toys. He listens well, likes chasing squirrels in the yard, taking walks (except when it is so cold). Thank you so much for all that you do.


We adopted Dora and on December 8th she came home. She is well loved and has not even attempted to eat or chase our cat. In fact, she gives him kisses and is very concerned when he sneezes (which he does a lot!). She gets to go to the dog park often and loves playing with the other dogs. She likes car rides so much she wants to go with us every time we leave the house. She would go to school or work with us if she could! She has been a perfect addition to our house and has a friend for life in our son.

Mr. Biscuits

Mr. Biscuits is giving and getting a lot of love. He and Charlie are fast friends and are nearly brothers now. Here they are at story time in bed.

Thank you for everything you do. We love the new member of our family!


Just a note to let you know how Herman has been. He's still rather shy, but becoming a little bolder everyday. He always uses his litter box and eats very well. He loves to cuddle and sleeps on my bed every night. We absolutely adore him and hope he continues to do so well. Thank you all for Herman.


It is amazing that someone would have to give up this big beautiful boy at 7 years old, but he ended up at the shelter looking for a new forever home. What a coincidence that I happened to come to visit my friends at the shelter and there he was, laying on his back, purring and sticking his paw out of the cage at me. Now, the last thing I was looking for was to adopt a cat, but how could I resist this face? I gave him the opportunity to be adopted by someone else over the weekend. I thought there would be dozens wanting to adopt him, but on Wednesday, there he was still in the cage. He came home with me, spent a couple of days in my home office and then came out to find a home that loves him (and a few dog and cat friends to play with!).  

Riley has now been with us for four months and he has fit perfectly into our home. He lost a couple of pounds, which he needed to do, and is one happy guy.

Not only should you adopt and not shop, but take a look at those experienced animals. Thank you HHS for taking care of Riley while he was there and also for all the wonderful animals that we have adopted from HHS over the years.
