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!


Oakley and Orion

Tri-County Humane Society’s volunteers are not just valued team members; they’re also often donors - and adopters! This adoption story is about two critters who were adopted by the family of a standout TCHS volunteer. Alex F. spent more than two years as a TCHS volunteer photographer, turning in beautiful photos for the website and social media. TCHS recognized her efforts by awarding her “Junior Volunteer of the Year” last year.


“After losing our beloved guinea pig Buster (a TCHS alum as well) in April of 2019, our family eventually decided that we were ready to bring another senior pig into our home. After watching the website for some time, we found Oakley and Orion, a set of 6-year-old guinea pigs. We recently celebrated their one-year anniversary of adoption. We joke about how they are getting younger because it seems every day we see a more energetic side of them running circles around us. They have brought so much joy to our family, and we were lucky to find such a lively pair of senior pigs!”
