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!


Faith, now Gracie

Tri-County Humane Society staff, volunteers, and friends have long known that “rescue” is a two-way street. Hence the term – “Who Rescued Who?”.  Such is the case with this story. Faith, a poodle mix, found her new beginning – and her new best friend – five days after her arrival. Now Faith is Gracie, and her new human knows how lucky they both are.

“She has been the biggest blessing for myself but also anyone who meets her!” her adopter writes. “When I set out to rescue a dog, I didn’t realize she rescued me. Gracie and I are bonded at the hip. She’s my best friend, she goes everywhere I go. I’m just so grateful I’ve had the opportunity to include her in my family! She has come so far and blossomed into such a sweet soul.”

A shelter pet typically just needs a bit of time – and the right home – to be their best self! Gracie’s sure putting her best fashion self forward!
