Adoption Stories



We picked up Toby at the vet on March 12, and he's made good progress every day since. You may recall telling us that Pippen (as he was then known) needed to be house-trained. Once we learned that hanging a bell on the door would give Toby the means to tell us what he needed, he immediately took to the bell & has had only one or two "accidents" since. We're learning a lot from him.

As Toby's first birthday approached it seemed like the right time to invite a few friends & family around. We're suckers for Mexican food, so we couldn't resist enlisting Toby in promoting the theme. 

Toby virtually pops with enthusiasm, which is infectious, and he gives at least as much loving as he receives. We're blessed to have him as a friend.



I was in with my family on Sunday to meet with Keifer. We instantly clicked, adopted him, and brought him home that day.

Since we are a couple days into his stay at his forever home, I wanted to update you a bit on how things are going. First things first, we changed his name to Wesson, and he is beginning to catch on to the name. Also, he is super intelligent - he knows how to sit, shake, and even go to the door when he has to potty. He walks well on a leash and loves to run around to drain some of that puppy energy. Wesson is very curious, he loves to sniff everything, but will not grab at anything unless it is his toy or favorite sheet. He got his first bath today, and he absolutely loves the water.

I can't even begin to thank you enough for all your help on Sunday and making the transition as smooth as possible. Wesson seems to be adjusting well, and we couldn't be any happier with our decision to adopt.

I've been meaning to email you and thank you for helping us find our Ginger! She has been the missing piece in our lives. We love her so much, and she has been endlessly patient with our girls. After losing our dog a year ago, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to connect with another dog. But after talking with you and discussing all my reservations, you helped place us with her. You do amazing work, and I can't thank you enough for helping us complete our family!



This is Ariel and Anthony Soltero, the recent adopters of Jax. We just wanted to reach out and let you know how happy we are to have Jax as a part of our family, and that he and his big brother Chessie are getting along better than we had hoped! We kept them separated about 5 days and we've been able to keep them together ever since. I included some pictures of Jax and his brother, along with what we thought was a funny coincidence, a picture of some art work we bought this past year not realizing the significance of bringing home a black cat to our orange one, and how maybe Jax was meant to be! Thank you for all your help, best wishes to finding forever homes to all the fur babies. 




I just wanted to touch base to let you know that Tuttle, adopted on February 15, is doing well. He has gained a little weight and has been trying very hard to befriend our cat Haze. So far so good.  He is a very, very good little dog and seems to be adapting well to his new surroundings. He LOVES to go for walks, but is not very good on the leash yet. I'm looking into a training class for us to attend.

Thank you for the work that you do. We are very happy that Tuttle has become a member of our family.



Just wanted to forward this picture of my daughter Haley being surprised on Christmas morning with kitty Sloth who now goes by the name Gus-Gus. This little guy brought her to tears and has been a fun addition to the household. Gus-Gus has the personality and attitude (or catittude) to successfully deal with 2 other cats and a dog. Before long he will have them all wrapped around his little paw. Thank you so much for bringing him to Haley. She will love him and spoil him greatly.



Hi! It’s me, Tucker!! 
I just want to say hello and tell everyone at Hinsdale Humane Society that I’m doing well. I miss you guys but I’m having so much fun at my new home! I spend a lot of time relaxing, cuddling, and going for walks. I have some anxiety when we go for car rides but I’m getting more comfortable each time (my parents take me everywhere!). I’ve also been going on runs with Nick and lost 5 pounds so far! (I prefer sprinting for a couple blocks then walking the rest of the way ;-)).

This is me hanging out with my cousin.

Sending lots of love to the team at Hinsdale Humane Society! 



We adopted this beautiful lady back in August of 2017. She's definitely made herself right at home. Thank you for doing your "Clear the Shelter" day. It was that weekend we found our forever best friend!

Phoenix loves going out to the country and riding on the golf carts, she loves going for walks and playing with other dogs. She amazing with people and is the most loving dog we've ever had. Thank you Hinsdale Humane Society for helping us find our girl! 



Here are some photos of Céline (aka Meadow). She went to petsmart yesterday day to pick out new toys and get her nails done, and made quite a good impression on everyone in the store! We’re looking forward to meeting new friendly faces and experiencing different places and activities!
