Mocha, now Millie

Friends of Tri-County Humane Society know that 2021 was a record year for transfers for us! Having a new, twice-as-large shelter meant we could help our partners in animal welfare more often. This adoption story is about a dog from one of those transfers.

Mocha, a Black Mouth Cur mix, came to us in September 2021 via a Twin Cities transfer; she arrived there by way of Mississippi. She was adopted after a few weeks at TCHS; the now 1-year-old-plus dog is loving her new life as “Millie.”


“Millie loves her brother, and they are inseparable at this point,” says her new human. “She absolutely loves her bones and cuddles.”


Millie is officially a Minnesota resident now – she went as a Vikings cheerleader for Halloween. No matter the Vikes’ record, Millie will always be glad she’s a Minnesotan!
