Adoption Stories

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 pets@tricountyhumanesociety.org or message us on our Facebook page for future publication. We love to hear how our alumni are doing!


Matilda, now Roxy

Matilda, now Roxy

This story is about a pup whose days are filled with playtime! The 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix (then called Matilda) came to Tri-County Humane Society in mid-November last year.

Matilda was a transfer from another rescue, so we didn’t have information on her, but staff could tell she was a very friendly dog. (During her screening at TCHS, she was very gentle and mellow, and even made herself comfortable on the exam staff's lap.)

Matilda was adopted a little more than a week after she arrived. Her name is now Roxy, and here’s a report from her new best friend:


“She spends most of her days playing with toys while I’m at work and when I come back we spend a lot of time at the dog park on long walks and having snuggle time.”


What part of that doesn’t sound like a dream life for a man and his dog?! Making dreams come true for people and pets – that’s what we do, and we do it well!
