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


This story is about a pretty little tabby cat named Minnie who came to the shelter just at the right time to be discovered by her new family. Sometimes it takes a special kind of pet to complete (or climb!) a family tree. Enter Minnie and her new found household:

“We were looking for a long time for a cat or kitten to join our home.  They needed to be able to live in a home with young children and the chaos that they bring!  When we met Minnie, we just fell in love.  Her personality fits perfectly with our family! Minnie is a love bug and always makes us laugh and comforts us when we need it.  She ‘is wild’ as our 3-year-old calls her, throughout the day and night providing endless laughter.  Then when it is time to curl up and watch a movie or at bedtime she is right there purring and eager to make a whole lot of ‘biscuits.’  She has a special place in all of our hearts and has made our family of five a complete family of six. We thank you so very much TCHS for taking good care of our sweet Minnie and all that you do for animals!”

You’ve got a good gig going Minnie – looks like 6 is your lucky number!
