Michelle and I wanted to thank you for your help with our adoption. Farley is loving his new home and we love having him here! He has been adjusting very smoothly and is showing us just how sweet, smart, and obedient he can be. We already feel a strong bond and trust with him, and it hasn't even been 24hrs!
It’s been 3 years since we adopted our little Skippy Jon Jones (formerly known as Willy) from you guys. Just wanted to send an update and thank everyone for what you do over there.
Skippy originally was a medical and possible abuse rehabilitation, but demonstrated the disposition of a therapy dog after he adjusted to his new home! Eventually, he became my son’s emotional support dog! He goes everywhere with us, even on international travel. Life wouldn’t be the same without him! Please feel free to share a post on this incredible little rescue story.
Hello! I am Maggie! I am about three and a half years old, but I'm not very sure. I am very well behaved (wink, wink). I eat green beans and carrots! I am proud that I only know one command, which is SIT! I love toys. My favorite is my furry bone. I have a very early bed time which is about 7:00 PM. However, I wake my humans up very early!
When my humans first came to see me, I was thinking - who are these people and what are they here for? I also wanted to know why the girl with the glasses tasted so good. I am so happy my family found me! This writing thing is pretty tiring, I must take a nap.
Just sending a big thank you for the wonderful new addition to our family- Domino. He's only been in our home over a week and he's been such a joy. He's spoiled rotten too! Lots of love, toys, food, water and plenty of goodies. He knows he's got us wrapped around his little paw too... He's so good with our grandbabies! He's so patient with them. Such a good boy. He greets us every day when we come home with "meows" and "purring"...
Thank you again!
Jackie's doing great! Her full name now is Empress Jackie Thunderpaws, because on her first day home she spent a solid ten minutes thundering up and down the stairs - I think she really likes being able to run and spread out here.
I couldn't find the food the shelter was giving her but I had some Purina One and she seems to be doing okay with it. She's been getting her wet food twice a day since I noticed she doesn't drink that much water.
She loves playing with her fish toy on a string that you guys gave us - that and her laser pointer and her pink ribbon are her favorite toys. She likes to hide under the bed and then I wiggle the ribbon in front of her and she pounces out from under the bed to get it! It's super cute. She's been really friendly and nice to all the visitors we've had over. Oh, and she sleeps with me at night by my feet a lot. I've discovered that if she runs out of food at night, she wakes me up by licking my face until I go get her more food - even if it's 6 am.
She's very lovey and she purrs all the time and in the mornings when I get ready she follows me everywhere I go. She's amazing and I love her.

I'd like to share my adoption story with you. I volunteered this weekend at the Citadel event with Marilyn, one of your volunteers/staff. She encouraged me to write after talking about my cat, Oliver.
In December 2015 we adopted Oliver, who was at the time known as Remy. The HHS staff suspected he had some sort of abnormality with his vision. We didn't care and couldn't wait to take him home as he was the cutest, sweetest and most playful kitten.
His vision impairment was confirmed by two different vets. Oliver is almost blind but you would never know it. Two years later he is happy, healthy and active as ever. His other senses more than make up for his lack of vision. He can hear things we swear he shouldn't and he for sure smells his food being served when he's at the opposite end of the house. Oliver gets supervised exercise outside and the other day he was able to chase lightning bugs and trap them in the grass. He uses his whiskers to maneuver against walls and up stairs and even uses them to weave through chairs under the dining table. At times our family had to use sound (by tapping things) to help him identify where the top of a stair may be, or where the floor may be in relation to something he climbed on. This has helped him learn where things are and adapt to some low climbing and jumping.
Oliver is just an amazing cat now and is one of the loves of our life. Thank you and HHS for taking care of him before we could.
