Real Rescue Stories

Ever wonder about the stories of adopted animals? What was their life like before being rescued? Where did they come from? What is their life like with their forever family? We found some special pets who were willing to share their biographies. Some are HHS alums, some share their lives with our staff or volunteers, and all wanted to share their stories with us. These are their real rescue stories told in their own voice, with the help of some human interpretation. They, just like us, are unique individuals and each have their own story to tell.
