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!


Mocha, now Millie

Friends of Tri-County Humane Society know that 2021 was a record year for transfers for us! Having a new, twice-as-large shelter meant we could help our partners in animal welfare more often. This adoption story is about a dog from one of those transfers.

Mocha, a Black Mouth Cur mix, came to us in September 2021 via a Twin Cities transfer; she arrived there by way of Mississippi. She was adopted after a few weeks at TCHS; the now 1-year-old-plus dog is loving her new life as “Millie.”


“Millie loves her brother, and they are inseparable at this point,” says her new human. “She absolutely loves her bones and cuddles.”


Millie is officially a Minnesota resident now – she went as a Vikings cheerleader for Halloween. No matter the Vikes’ record, Millie will always be glad she’s a Minnesotan!
