Adoption Stories

We receive wonderful stories of TCHS alumni on a regular basis, and we want to offer our sincere thanks to all who take the time to share them with us. We are invested in each and every pet we care for, and we want the best for them!  THIS is why we do what we do. Why you give, volunteer, adopt, and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.

2019 Happy "Tails"

Click the name to read the whole story!

This is a loving tribute to a cat who found his way into his human's life and stayed there for many, many wonderful years. 

Ivie went from kennel kooky to a total cutie in her new home! Ivie came into TCHS in early January because her previous owner moved and couldn’t bring her along.

Kratos came to the shelter at 1.5 years old, he was too high energy for the family to deal with at that time. He was adopted and returned a few days later because he needed more exercise than they could give him.

Willy, a 4 year old Guinea Pig, came to us in December because his previous owner's health no longer afforded them the ability to care for him. 

This is a tale of a dog whose fortunes changed dramatically in a short amount of time.

One of the best parts of Tri-County Humane Society is when staff and volunteers get to see animals transform from shy or scared in their kennels to outgoing and confident in their new homes.

Liam came to us in August as a timid stray.  He spent several weeks in foster care for socialization before landing an awesome new home on December 9th.

Ricky came to us in October with 2 feline friends looking for new homes. This sweet but super shy kitten hid in the back of his kennel for the majority of his stay, making it tough for potential adopters to see his true potential.

We love to hear how our alumni are doing!



My name is Tippers! Or Tippy or Tippy the Tipster! I was picked up as a stray and brought to the Tri-County Humane Society where I was given lots of love and cuddles by all the amazing people there until I found my forever home with Five 2Foots and Five 4Foots (all TCHS alumni like me). I am a special kitty, born with a neurological condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This basically means that the balance part of my brain is underdeveloped, hence the name Tippers as I often Tip over! Some say that I am a Wobbly Wobbler - but I'm glad I wasn't named that! I am only 5 months old but I have already decided that I have an important role in life. My mission is to be an advocate for animals with disabilities and raise awareness of Cerebellar Hypoplasia. I am a Motivational and Inspurrational Meower! My favorite saying is, 'No matter how many wobbles life throws at you, pick yourself up and try again!'

If you want to be inspired or feel some Tippy love, you can connect with me at the following: Facebook ~ Tippers Inspurrations, Instagram ~ @tipperswobblykitty, Blog ~

I am also available to visit people with disabilities and give them lots of snuggles. If you could benefit from some Tippy TLC, send me an email to

Tippy love and kisses to you all for a beautiful and purrfect day!
