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!


Kate, now Skippy

Kate, now Skippy

This story is about a little kitty who had one big year and is now a big city kitty! In 2019, stray kitten Kate spent a few weeks in a foster home to get big enough to be spayed and then adopted. That notable event happened in June 2019. We heard from her new family just before her 1-year adopt-a-versary: 


"The first couple weeks of being home we all fell in love with her and renamed her Skippy. She is getting to be such a big (and long) girl now. Skippy continues to thrive off being the center of attention. She loves everybody and everything. She especially enjoys having her twenty-three-year-old sister around to cuddle with every day. She is a kitty with lots of energy and a big personality. She is still learning how to enunciate her words. In her free time, Skippy loves playing fetch with her little toy ball, attacking wool socks, and playing with her older (feline) sister Misty. She has adapted well to her Minneapolis house and loves her family!”


Goes to show, happiness can grow wherever it’s planted! Good job bringing it all the way to the big city Skippy!
