New year, new attitude – and don’t ever believe that a dog can’t learn new tricks! Or, in the case of this adoption story, learn how to adjust to a totally different climate!
This adoption story is about a pup who will probably be recognizable to anyone who spent some time on our website or Facebook page in 2021.
This adoption story is about a shy kitty who now has a lookalike big brother whom he adores!
Anyone who has ever been loved by an animal knows they can be a great source of support.
Sometimes dogs provide emotional support, but some need some support of their own! This adoption story is about a kitten adopted from the shelter who has helped provide some comfort to her canine roomie, another a TCHS alum.
We think you’ll love this adoption story about a poodle named Jane who came into the shelter in relatively rough shape.
Sometimes shelter pets feel comfortable right away in their new home; others need a little bit of time. A patient adopter helps – and an animal buddy can, too!
It’s great when pets can take on jobs after their adoptions, whether it be patrolling for mice in a barn or helping keep things in order on the farm. The subject of this adoption story found a different – but cozy – niche.
Tri-County Humane Society often adopts out “working cats” or barn cats—those that, for whatever reason, would not make for a good indoor cat but still deserve good homes.
I wanted to send an update on Loreli. I adopted her (recently) and it was rough to say the least. :)
This adoption story is from a TCHS volunteer who is definitely a bunny person – and she is very excited about the latest, fluffy addition to her household.
This adoptee recently celebrated her four-year “adopt-a-versy!” And this gal is living the life – the lake life, that is!
This story is about a cat who turned out to be a great mouser – albeit a different type of mouser!
This adoption story is about a dog who was in and out of the shelter a few times, looking for just the right home to lighten up!
Tri-County Humane Society’s volunteers are not just valued team members; they’re also often donors - and adopters!
This adoption story comes from one of the TCHS veterinarians, Dr. Anne Lottie, whom we’re lucky to have on our team for so many reasons!
This is a weight loss success adoption story.
We have this overwhelming urge to say “Leapin’ Lizards!” This adoption story is about a little lizard who may not be a leaper, but he’s certainly livin’ large in his new home!
Kitten season means lots of kitten adoptions, naturally! And anyone who has adopted a kitten can tell you part of the fun is watching them grow up and develop their purr-sonality. Aqua was part of an unplanned litter ( can you say NUTR-EM??)
Sometimes it’s tough to see a certain animal wait longer than most for a home. The staff and volunteers know they’re all great animals; they just need a chance to find the right person.
Tri-County Humane Society’s Kitty Korner was only around for a little more than a year, but with hundreds of adoptions done there, it had a big impact. This adoption story starts at Kitty Korner, then winds back to our main shelter. (It’s a great story – hey, aren’t they all?)
This adoption story comes from a relatively new but VERY dedicated Tri-County Humane Society volunteer - and her initially reluctant husband.
We would love to share two-stories-in-one about a recent Tri-County Humane Society dog named Tanner, who came to us as a transfer from a North Dakota rescue.
We all need a buddy – and helping people find a buddy is what Tri-County Humane Society is all about! This adoption story is about a “Buddy” who is a beloved family member. The rat terrier mix arrived at TCHS in May 2018, and didn’t wait long at all for his new home.
This story about a li'l one whose status went from spud to spunky star of her new home! This is a tale especially appropriate when the shelter is filled with kittens
As July comes to a close, Tri-County Humane Society is getting close to 2,000 adoptions so far this year. (Not to pat ourselves on the back – but wow!) One of those recent adoptions was this shepherd mix puppy.
This 2-year-old cat named Skip came in to the shelter from a North Dakota rescue group in early February.
Losing a pet is very painful – they are family, after all. The decision if and when to add a new pet to your home (and heart) is a personal one, and the answer is different for everyone. In this adoption story, a very special dog came into the human’s life at just the right time.
We at Tri-County Humane Society know that it’s not only tough on us when our animal companions cross the Rainbow Bridge; it’s tough on their animal siblings, too. So it’s always nice to hear when a new addition to a home is welcomed by all members of the family, including those with four paws.
Tri-County Humane Society staff often have to play an educated guessing game when it comes to our dogs’ breeds, unless we know the parentage or have paperwork.
It's June and kitten season has started! If this year is like any other, it probably will last until the leaves start to fall! We at TCHS often say that it’s a great idea to adopt kittens in pairs, and no, it’s not just because it helps clear our shelter faster - although that is definitely an advantage!
This story is about a very special dog who captured the hearts of many of us at TCHS – so much so, that when he recently came back to pay a visit, the staff went wild!
We often hear, "how do you not take them all home?" Well, housing situations and city laws (not to mention spouses/partners/roommates) stop that from happening! However, every now and then, a staff member can’t resist adopting one that has tugged at their heart.
Most animals come to us in pretty good shape – happy and healthy. Others, such as this adoption story, need a little extra care.
I adopted Otis, whose name was Chester at the time, in November of 2016. Although he was a little shy at first, he quickly settled into his new home!
This adoption story takes a bit of a different spin from those prior. Thereby I expect to give you a deeper look into our work and in doing so, hope we don’t spoil anyone’s appetite!
Tri-County Humane Society had a busy year for adoptions in 2020. For many families, COVID actually turned out to be a good time to add to their households, because so many members were home more often. Such is the case with this adoption story.
This story is about a feline TCHS alum who has two basic modes: play and sleep!
This story is about a pretty little tabby cat named Minnie who came to the shelter just at the right time to be discovered by her new family.
Marilyn, a 7-month-old kitty, came to us as a very timid and nervous kitty. She slowly but surely started to warm up to staff and volunteers.
Everyone who is owned by a dog knows one of the best parts is the welcome-home greeting you get from your furry best friend!
Even the smallest creatures can leave a big impact on your heart! Such is the case with the tiny subject of this adoption story.
Tri-County Humane Society staff, volunteers, and friends have long known that “rescue” is a two-way street. Hence the term – “Who Rescued Who?”. Such is the case with this story.
This adoption story is about a rabbit. Mayzie is a 5-year-old Mini Lop who came in to Tri-County Humane Society in late February.
This story is a two-fer: Over the course of a few weeks a family adopted an adult dog and a puppy from TCHS, both of whom are loving rural life and each other.
This story is about a kitten with some serious skills who could easily be ready for the next Kitty Bowl draft! She was picked up a short week after she came in, and she definitely calls the plays with her new family.
Some of the dogs we see at the shelter have some issues that only a kind and caring person with lots of patience will be able to help. The good news is those people often come to a shelter to adopt a dog that really needs them.
Leonardo came in to TCHS as a kitten with this three brothers. The little guys, who were found outside, spent some time in foster care to get big enough for adoption.
One of our more than 370 adoptions so far this year (as of this newsletter’s press time) was Ken the cat, pictured here.
Is there anything cuter than a puppy? Why, two puppies, of course
This is Jack. I wasn’t looking for a dog, or so I told everyone. I’d lost my best four-legged friend, McKinna, a few months before and I really wasn’t looking for another dog. Or so I kept telling myself every day when I would look at the Tri-County Humane Society Website. And then I saw him, this solemn looking boy who’d been found by a wayside rest. I went to visit right away. I couldn’t take him out of his kennel because he’d just arrived, but we talked through the wire and he kept turning his head as if he were listening to me..
I’d found the dog I wasn’t looking for.
The wait to take him home was longer than anticipated because of a two week quarantine due to a virus that had been found in one of the dogs brought in. So I waited. I was able to visit Jack on several occasions. One of the times I went to visit a volunteer had just given him a bath and was attempting to comb out dozens of cockoburs that were stuck in his long, beautiful fur.
Finally the day came to take Jack home. He just needed the final okay by one of the veterinarians who volunteers their time at the shelter. I waited anxiously for the exam to be over with collar and leash in hand. One of the staff came out and said they had some bad news. Jack, who they estimated was between 10 and 12 years old, had a crushed vertebra, had no feeling in one of his back legs, and would need to be on pain/anti-inflammatory medicine for the rest of his life. In addition, he needed 6 teeth pulled..
I remember the look of confusion on her face when I started to smile. I explained that I have two artificial knees and two artificial ankles so Jack and I seemed like the perfect pair. I fostered Jack until his teeth were extracted and then we went back to the Humane Society a few weeks later for the official adoption. The staff at Tri-County Humane Society were so wonderful to work with. They truly care about all of the animals at the shelter.
I don’t know what Jack’s life was like before the shelter, but here’s Jack’s current life: He’s a work dog. Jack comes to work with me two to three days a week at Engel Metallurgical. He ‘guards’ the hallway and greets visitors as they come in. Everyone loves him and often co-workers will be found giving him belly scratches. When he’s not at work Jack sometimes spends a day with his four-legged friends at La Dee Dogs. His gentle temperament and ready smile have made everyone in the neighborhood fall in love with him. When people notice his wobbly, sometimes drooping back end I always say, “Droopy back, happy front.” And it’s true. Jack is the happiest dog! He never lets his disability get in the way of being a dog. I have so much respect and love for this animal. I’m so lucky to have found him!
We've been fostering-to-adopt Ranger since July 2016, because at that time he was heartworm positive and we were working to get him 100% healthy. Since we got him he's been the sweetest, easiest dog to have. He's loving, smart, hilarious, and gentle. And when he has his daily zoomies we let him outside so he can tear around the yard at 110 mph until he has worn himself out. Since he is part Staffie, Ranger is a POWERFUL chewer so we keep him busy with his favorite treats and toys which include: femur bones with peanut butter in them, Nutro blueberry treats, elk/deer antlers, tennis balls, anything that’s double/triple/quadruple stitched and a particular squeaky snake made of green firehose.
Since he is very thin-coated and this winter cold has been brutal we had to enlist the help of Etsy to get him some custom fitted pajamas to keep him warm when we go outside. So we suit him up in white and black leopard print long pjs, black booties for his feet, and a red and black plaid top jacket. So he stays nice and toasty. One funny thing about Ranger is his lip constantly gets stuck up so he will look up at you and his little teeth are exposed. We have fallen deeply in love with this quirky little boy and have enjoyed spoiling him rotten. Now that he his HEARTWORM NEGATIVE we made it official and adopted him and we look forward to loving and spoiling him for the rest of his life.
When I (Aimee) was 4 my family adopted a yellow lab Springer puppy from Tri-County and we named him Max. We had him for 14 wonderful years. He was my first dog ever and now as an adult I've gotten the chance to come back and get my first dog that is all mine. Thank you Tri-County, your facility has always been my families first choice and we have never been disappointed. Thank you for bringing us together.
We adopted "Robin" from TCHS mid summer of 2017. Robin has a new name to go with her new home. We call her Alice. She is a pink-eyed white Lionhead and we like to think she's quite happy here with us and her "hus-bun" - his name is Thumper.
We bought Alice in hopes she would make a great friend for Thumper. They bonded very quickly and are now inseparable! They enjoy sharing timothy and orchard hay, fresh greens like cilantro and parsley and of course time together outside of their enclosure to binky and run around! This pair also enjoys going to the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society's "Hoppy Hour" social event for Rabbits.
We love having Alice as part of our family!
Here is a picture of LuLu taken today, 1/24/2018. You can just see the level of stress and anxiety brought on by being thrown into a new household. She is a wonderful cat, a real trooper who now sleeps on the bed with us at night. Please share the photo with all, but especially Kallie and Vicki, as they were the two who helped us adopt LuLu.
Thanks so much,
Just checking in now that we've had a full month of Chub time! He is an incredibly smart boy, who likes walks, treats, and snuggles. He's the largest lap dog I've ever met, and he always wants to be wherever you are. He loves the sprinkler and giving kisses. He's such a welcomed addition to our little family! Thank you TCHS!
I've put an updated photo of Chubby Bear at the bottom of the email so you can see that he's now a healthy weight! We remained consistent with his diet and we made sure to exercise him. He loves his walks so this was easy for us! He's about 85 pounds now!
We hadn't really realized how much weight he had lost until we looked at pictures of him from the day we adopted him. He truly does have more energy now that he's a healthy weight and we are so happy we found him at TCHS! He's the most welcome addition to our family, we're so happy to have him.
Deuce is an 11-year-old Lab mix that was with us for two weeks before being adopted. He lived mainly outdoors in his previous home, but when he was adopted he transitioned quite easily to an indoor home. It didn't take him long to claim the couch and the bed as his own (he shares of course) and he got to pick out his very own toys.
From Deuce's people: “He sure is a happy boy. My heart is so full.”
I've heard people speculate that dogs his age probably won't get adopted. Not true. There are people out there that have a soft spot for older dogs. May their full heart be blessed!
Bambi and Delife
Bambi (the gray and white cat) was adopted from TCHS 8 1/2 years ago. Several years later, Delife (the cream tabby kitten) was adopted after being fostered by her family. Bambi doesn't seem to mind her new kitten companion; they even share the same sitting box!
We're told they're the best of friends. If you're on the fence about adding a new companion to your already seasoned household--think again! Cats who are part of a multi-cat household are often happier and more confident, meaning they are less likely to exhibit behavioral problems. Bambi and Delife are a great example of a wonderful match despite the generation gap!
Bobbi, Daisy and Lilly
Over a year ago we received an update of two kittens named Bobbi (red tabby) and Daisy (blue tabby) - pictured in the first frame. These two were not litter-mates, but clearly became inseparable. A few months later, Bobbi and Daisy’s owners decided to add a third addition to the family from our cat room. So along came Amelia (now Lilly), a gorgeous tortoiseshell kitten. She fit right in.
We learned from their family that Bobbi is a daddy's boy, and all three love to cuddle with each other. They save some cuddle time for their humans too. Daisy is such a mama to Bob and Lilly, always loving up and grooming them. They affectionately call Lilly "Baby Bob" as she also follows him around and learns all her tricks from him. Lilly’s fur (the torti) has a lot more orange in it now than when they first got her; so they laugh that she's even trying to change her fur from black to orange to be more like Bob. Quote from them: “We love our 3 kitties so much! Thank you again!”
Alexa, April and Amber
Finding animals homes, especially around the holidays, is incredibly rewarding in itself – but to be recognized for the work we're doing by a fellow animal welfare partner is such a wonderful gift. Working together saves lives. Thank you for partnering with Tri-County Humane Society, which enables us to do work like this with others. We all share a common goal - helping animals! Below is a note from one of our partners, Leech Lake Legacy:
I dropped off 3 dogs from the Rez yesterday (April, Amber and Alexa) and I see that you already have these sweet girls up for adoption- YOU ARE ALL AMAZING! I cannot thank you enough for your partnership and great work! You help make Leech Lake Legacy’s mission possible and rewarding. We couldn’t do it without you!
Yesterday was the first time I dropped animals off at Tri-County on behalf of Leech Lake Legacy. Jenny has always sung your praises, but I was deeply touched and amazed at how professionally I was treated, and how humble and sweet the staff were to the animals. Hearing how great you are, and seeing it first hand, was just an incredible experience for me. Knowing that the sweet girls I cared for this past weekend at the Rez are in great hands (and will likely have homes by Christmas thanks to your exceptional and expedited work), just made my holiday season the best one yet!
Thank you again for everything you do to care for, and re-home, animals. You all have a special place in our hearts!
On behalf of Leech Lake Legacy, I wish you all a wonderful holiday season!
This is Lacey, who started her new life with us on May 21st.
In early May my husband and I said goodbye to our sweet old dog, Snooks. For the first time ever we were without a pet and the house felt pretty empty. A few weeks later we started looking for another dog. I stopped by TCHS and after checking out the dogs I walked through the small animal room. A little guinea pig named Snow White came out of her igloo and stood up to greet me. That evening I told my husband about her and the next day I adopted her.
Now her name is Lacey, and her job is to keep an eye on the kitchen from a loft in her cage. Like most guinea pigs she is a foodie, and she whistles anytime she thinks there might be food. Lacey spends several hours each day in a large play area eating hay and fresh greens. She moves her hideaways around and rearranges them so she can run through them when she gets the zoomies. She’s very smart and learned her new name quickly. She has also learned “circle” and she will turn in a circle for a treat.
We have since adopted a rescue dog and inherited a senior cat so now our house is filled with activity. Thank you so much for all of the good work you do helping the animals find forever homes.
This is James, one of our outstanding junior volunteers. He volunteers every week with his mother, Michelle, and his sister, Carley. James became very fond of the bunny Flopsy, who had been at Tri-County Humane Society for a long time. On a recent weekend, James became sad because he saw Flopsy had a deposit. Michelle asked him if he wanted to go into the small animal room to do some chores, and James said, “What’s the point? Flopsy’s got a deposit!” Well, what Michelle hadn’t told James was that SHE was the one who put down the deposit. She picked up Flopsy a few days later to surprise James. Here’s what she later had to say: “He was so excited. He even slept on his floor last night next to Flopsy's cage. I got up this morning and had to snap a picture because it was so sweet. He sure is one happy boy!”
It's been a few days since picking up Axle and I'd really like to thank the folks at Tri-County Humane Society for bringing me the opportunity to meet him. Methinks this will be a perfect match. He's a handful....but he's one of the most needy loving pups I've met in quite awhile. All he wants to do is please his human and collect pets
So far in the first week it's been long walks, belly rubs, good food and a big bed while he finds his place in his new world. We've thrown in a few lessons for manners around the house and a few field basics for hunting just to see how well he learns new concepts. Axle is a quick enthusiastic study with any task so far and in time he'll be awesome at everything he tries.
Here's a few pictures of Axle in his backyard and on his king size bed.
Thank you all so much for caring for Axle while he waited to be found by his forever human.
We adopted Harry from TCHS 8 years ago. We thought we were getting a cuddly, laid-back kitten and we ended up with this little character that is more like a person than a cat. We love him so much and are grateful for him every day! (Even though he is always trying to steal our food or sneak outside.)
This is Simon, previously known as Simba. He was at TCHS for almost 2 months and is now living his best life going for plenty of car rides and doing as much exploring as he can! His person sent us these photos.
Whoever said dogs don't smile hasn't seen Simon take a ride in a car or go on a hike!
I can't tell you how much my daughter loves her cat. Alfredo was new to the shelter when she fell in love with him. It wasn't known how he'd do with children, but these two are so inseparable, it warms my heart. My daughter is home sick today, and her Alfredo hasn't left her side yet. It's been an amazing 8 months with Alfredo, and we couldn't be happier.
Bongo first arrived at TCHS last year as a stray kitten with an unusable front-right leg. He was kitten feisty even with the challenges his leg presented. The highlight of his days was wet food and time spent with Laura, our Animal Care manager, while he was in foster care with her. Bongo's leg was not going to get better, so it was amputated on August 26th. Bongo would then spend more time in foster care to recover. After he figured out maneuvering on 3 legs (which didn't take him long at all) he came back to the shelter and was adopted by the Hahn Family in September. Thank you for enabling us to offer this kind of care to the animals who come to us with special needs.
Just recently we received an update of Bongo on our Facebook page which said:
“We got Bongo (we now call him Trace) a little over a year ago, and we couldn't be happier. He is the sweetest, most chill, and hilarious cat. We love him so so so much!”
Hi I thought I'd share some photos of Sylvee (now named Sunny) with you in her new home! We absolutely adore her and she is such a little smarty. By far, the easiest puppy I have ever had. Thank you so much for helping me find my baby girl! She's the best! We love her! Thank you again! (She is pictured with her cat sister Skye. )
She is an amazing dog and I'm sure you have more that would flourish in a forever home. God bless you for the work you do!
Comet is an 8-pound Toy Poodle mix who arrived at TCHS at the beginning of August -- he was 14 years young. Comet was very spirited despite his old-age ailments including failing eyes, bad teeth, and an occasional seizure. During his stay at the shelter his health began to waiver and he had a few seizure spells. After a few weeks he was taken off the adoption floor while our Animal Care Manager thought deeply about his quality of life. A few days prior to that, Comet’s picture was featured on our social media pages where lots of love was sent his way, but not an adopter.
A few days later, we received a message on Facebook inquiring about Comet and wondering if he had been adopted. Nothing about Comet's current status fazed his future family—they just wanted to bring him home and give him the best possible life he could get. So on August 24th they adopted Comet and he is loving the life of being spoiled, cuddled, and of course, being a member of the "family" photo shoots.
I may have said this before, but isn't it wonderful that there seems to be someone out there for everyone? I'm just tickled that "someone" saw Comet on our facebook post and it was love at first sight! Probably no one happier though than Comet!
Thank you for the role you play in making these stories possible and being part of the TCHS village!
A little more than nine years ago I visited Tri-County Humane Society, looking for a little sister for my giant monstah kitty as a surprise for his second birthday. There, I found Rhia, the tiniest and prettiest dilute tortoiseshell kitty. She was 11 months old, and she was perfect.
Except that she wasn’t.
Three years ago, she stopped eating. After a week at the vet, it was determined she has inflammatory bowel disease, which is now being treated with doses of an oral steroid every few days and a monthly injection of B-12. This little one also has a litany of other health issues and has had most of her teeth pulled, including all four of her canines.
Nevertheless, she LOVES her nummies and canned food with gravy; she races up and down the hallway and tries to climb the door jambs; she’s the world’s best napper; she rarely meows, but it’s the most adorable thing when she does; she snuggles next to my head every single night, purring me to sleep.
And on Sept. 5, she turned 10.
She’s the tiniest cutest, and I love her to pieces. Health wise she may not be perfect… but she’s perfect to me. She’s my little Tiny Poo, and I can’t imagine not having her. Happy 10th birthday, baby girl!
On January 27th we received a transport of pups from our friends at Leech Lake Legacy. In this transport was a concerned mama dog and her hungry little puppies. Our animal care staff made a quick connection that this dog had little to no human contact where she came from, but she sure was a good mother.
Monkey and her puppies made themselves right at home in their kennel in the back office. Staff eventually got used to the ever-present smell of messy puppies. Once the little ones were big enough, they were sent to foster care to ensure they get properly socialized due to their mama's huge trust issues with humans.
Over time, Monkey had her favorite humans at the shelter and her favorite toys. One pivotal moment for her was when our animal care staff discovered her love for three monkey toys strung together. These monkeys made a bunch of wacky noises and helped Monkey learn how to play which is why she was named Monkey. We, of course, had plenty of other toys for Monkey to play with which she would make a pile of and lay on top of them. A post-mothering instinct perhaps.
Months passed by with Monkey inching along to becoming a happier dog and getting her further removed from her feral life. We worked with dog trainers and every morning before we opened she visited new part of the shelter and met different people. She had left an imprint on a lot of us. We could leave her kennel door and the office door wide open and she'd just stay in her kennel and observe with those bright brown eyes of hers.
We got to the point where we were comfortable advertising Monkey on our website for adoption. We needed a home for her that could rigorously continue her socialization and love her as is. Monkey received some interest, but none were quite the right fit until one young lady came along.
This young girl made an instant connection with Monkey. They found a lot of similarities with one another—they both get uncomfortable in new surroundings and around new people, but once they are together those fears go away. Monkey was adopted on August 4th after spending 8 months with us. They stopped in the shelter today for a visit.
It took some time and effort, but it "feels good" to see them together - I'm comfortable saying it was well worth it and a labor of love! And YOU helped make that happen!
Klondike arrived at TCHS as a stray on January 2nd, 2017 with severe injuries to all four legs and his abdomen. Upon his arrival, he was sedated to have his wounds examined, cleaned, and treated by TCHS veterinarian Dr. Lois Harmon. Antibiotics and pain management immediately followed. Klondike’s journey to recovery wouldn’t stop here, however.
After a month of bandage changes and wound cleanings Klondike had his first surgery. This surgery involved cleaning and closing Klondike’s wounds (with proper drainage) and neutering him. As you can imagine, he was uncomfortable even with pain management. He would tear his bandages off frequently which wasn't helping matters.
On March 7th one of our volunteer veterinarians, Dr. Tom Rohman, sutured together Klondike’s wound on his front right leg. The same procedure occurred on March 28th to help promote healing and drainage. Klondike had been in foster care since February 9th with his patient foster family (that would eventually turn into his final family). Similar procedures occurred again on May 15th and June 2nd this time with skin grafts by Dr. Shannon Pieteg at Boysen Animal Hospital. After around 15 more appointments and checks Klondike was looking and feeling like a brand new cat. Once we made sure Klondike was in tip-top shape, he was adopted by his foster family on August 4th 2017.
Harley (formally Gator) was adopted April 16th, 2013. Harley moved with his mom 2 years ago to North Carolina and now lives with his sister Brinley, Mom, and Dad. He loves the ocean beaches and his big yard that he runs in. In December 2017 he will move with his family to Oklahoma where they will have their family forever home along with an addition of twins expected in September. Harley has been the most LOVING dog we could have ever asked for!
"I'd like to send an update about the puppy my fiancé and I got from you back in January. In January of 2017 we bought a house in Big Lake, MN and 2 days later we fell in love with our beautiful retriever mix, Mira, formally known as Ramona. She is 9 months old currently and has been the highlight of our lives. Mira is such a good girl. She loves the water, the hose is her favorite, and absolutely loves car rides. She is beyond friendly to people of all ages. Mira gets to travel all over the United States, her most recent trip was a road trip to Montana. She joined us for days filled with hiking and waterfalls and chasing flys around the cabin. Mira has a personality all her own. She's a happy, go lucky girl and would do anything to make her people happy. Mira is the best thing that has ever happened to us, and we, her parents, thank you for giving us the best dog on the planet. Thank you a million times! Mira is a beautiful girl that brings so much joy to everyone around her. "
Below is a note we just received thanking us for making their daughter so happy. If this doesn’t say “Happiness Happens at TCHS” I don’t know what does! The first picture is at the adoption counter where her dream was coming true. Because of you, this young lady has a best friend to cuddle and to share in all of her secrets!
“Yesterday we added to our family by adopting Amelia who we renamed to Lily. We came in a few days ago and she had a deposit on her already and came back Saturday to find out she no longer did. We were so thankful as she has made our oldest daughter so happy! She has been the perfect addition to our family! Thank you TCHS! Our daughter wanted a kitten that would cuddle with her. I would say it is pretty safe to say she got that with Lily. We love how happy she makes her!”

We love to hear how our alumni are doing!
