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!


Q-Tip, now Smore

Q-Tip, now Smore

This story is about a kitten with a sweet name who’s living a sweet life indeed!

The Siamese kitten that Tri-County Humane Society named Q-Tip came in to the shelter in June with her brother; the two spent some time in foster care to get ready for adoption. (Thank you to all the TCHS fosters!) Q-Tip, now named Smore, was adopted at the end of August.


“She warmed right up to the home, quickly taking over her five-story cat tree which looks out the big front window where she can watch birds, squirrels and the occasional turkey and deer. The vet saw her for an upper respiratory infection, but after meds she is just fine. She likes to steal and hide small objects, and boiled chicken has become her favorite treat! She is great at having her nails trimmed and loves a good brushing. She loves to give kisses and is happy to get them in return. We are so happy to have her as part of our home.”


It sounds like Smore goes as well with her new home as chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers go together around a campfire!
