Adoption Stories

Princess pearl


I adopted 2 year old Pearl from Hindsdale in June. Just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone there as she has been such a joy! She and my older cat Jack Sparrow get along well like brother and sister. They still have their spats but they also chase each other around and play hide and seek and certainly keep each other occupied!

Here are a few photos!

Greetings to our friends at HHS,

Scrappy was adopted in January 2010, he was the last puppy left of the Pomeranian/Chow Chow litter when I came in and we fell in love immediately.  He has added so much laughter and fun to my life, I often tell people he is my angel sent down from heaven.

He makes friends every where we go, and is one of the popular "kids" at the dog park.  Scrappy loves going to Agility class and sometimes tends to be the class clown.

Thank you so much for bringing us together!! I refer HHS to all my friends and family that are trying to find a pet to help your homeless pets find a forever family/home!

Sincerely, Maureen K.



Hello - thought you all might enjoy an update on Tiger, who I adopted in October.

He has settled in just fine: enjoys watching the birds out my sliding glass door, chasing my grandchildrens' plastic balls that he found on the shelf, and sleeping on my soft velour bed blanket. He sure does loves to be petted - don't we all!

Thank you for your help with the adoption.

Sincerely, Janice C.



I wanted to thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts for letting us adopt Lucy, the beagle / cocker pup. We took her home today and she has been an absolute joy and has already completely warmed up to us. She's got quite the personality playing in the yard and loves to snuggle when indoors.

We really couldn't be happier and we appreciate all you've done for us and Lucy. A special thanks to Allan, who is easily the most friendly and helpful gentleman we've had the pleasure of meeting, and we've been to MANY animal shelters hunting for the 'perfect' pup and have met a lot of people in the process!

Sincerely, Adam B. & Laura J.



This is our dog Jax or as we called him our "Bebe". We adopted him from your shelter in August of 1998 he was originally named Razor. He was a Golden Retriever/Chow Mix & was approx 8 months old.

We are writing you to thank you for almost 14 years with our little boy. He passed away on July 24, 2011 in my husband's arms & in his home he loved & grew up in.

Jax brought kisses, unconditional love & many memories to our lives & home. He was full of attitude, personality & kindness. He can never be replaced.  He was priceless!

As anyone knows who is blessed to own a pet they are more than an animal, they are a family member.  He will forever be remembered & loved. We thank you for rescuing Jax and for the time we had with our sweet little boy!

God Bless Our "Bebe" boy Jax!

Mike & Cathy C.
