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.

Share Your TCHS Adoption Story:  email your story with photos to or message us on our Facebook page for future publication. We love to hear how our alumni are doing!



Sometimes all it takes is a little patience to turn a nervous shelter dog into a relaxed, happy pet.

This stoyr is about Tucker, a 2-year-old Retriever mix who was brought to the shelter in July. Tucker was skittish and shy, but he quickly captured staff members’ and volunteers’ hearts. He eventually found his perfect match in September.

TCHS staff knew that Tucker got along well with other dogs, but we didn’t know how he was with cats. Well, we’re happy to share that he’s doing great with the resident cats. Says his adopter:

“He is doing really well. He was such an anxious boy at first, but now he has warmed up to his family and his three kitty siblings. He really likes to take long naps and snuggle with his parents.”

His family considered changing his name, “but it just fit his silly and gregarious nature.” Way to go, Tucker!
