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!


Emerald (now Bandit)

This story is about a kitty who always looks all dressed up (he’s a tuxedo cat) and in no time at all found a new place to call home. Then named Emerald, this gem of kitten came in with his littermates, Ruby and Opal. They were an unplanned outdoor litter. Emerald was the friendliest of the shy bunch, but they all needed a little extra convincing to believe that humans can be a good thing – worthy friends in fact! A short two days later Emerald was adopted.


“He has quickly become loved by everyone in the house, including our 4- year- old ginger cat, Chester. We have renamed this beautiful tuxedo kitty, Bandit, due to his wonderful markings and his ability to steal everyone’s hearts.”


From a shy guy to stealing hearts – no one’s going to turn this bandit in for that crime!
