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!


Joey, now Josie Belle

This adoption story is about a poodle mix who has learned what it’s like to be a pampered, beloved pup.

Then called Joey, the 5-year-old dog came into Tri-County Humane Society last summer. She waited a little over a week until she found her new home and people. Now named Josie Belle, this dog is living the good life – and in return has brought much-needed comfort to her new family.


“Our family fell in love with Josie Belle the minute we met her. We had just lost our prior dog and we needed Josie as much as she needed us. Josie Belle now enjoys her days going for long walks, chasing every single leaf to pass her, long naps, and snuggling with her humans whenever possible. We are so thankful Josie Belle is a part of our family. Thank you, Tri-County Humane Society, for giving us our best friend.”
