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!


Pinkie, now Astrid

That first year of a dog’s life goes so fast and includes so many changes and dog-life lessons! We’re always delighted to hear about puppy alumni who have grown up to be very good and well-loved dogs. This adoption story is one of them.

A shepherd mix puppy whom we called Pinkie came to us in late 2020; she found her home by January 2021. And what a first year it’s been for Pinkie, who is now Astrid. Luckily for her, she was adopted by a standout TCHS volunteer/foster parent.


“Astrid is an energetic girl who loves the snow, hiking, and car rides! Her favorite games include fetch and hide-and-seek with her humans. She loves any toy with a squeaker and fluff — she loves pulling them apart even more. She has recently started agility and is crushing it. She is a great role model for foster kittens and tries to be a mother to them.”


Thanks to Astrid we’re able to include “grew up with a dog” to the foster kittens’ adoption profile!

You too could help socialize kittens by fostering.
