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!


Most animals who come to Tri-County Humane Society looking for new homes are happy and healthy. But every now and then, we get one who needs a little extra care, whether it be medical, mental, or both. Such is the case with this pup's story. Zeus arrived in mid-January. The 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix was severely underweight and in need of immediate care. He ended up spending about a month at the shelter as staff worked with him to get him to a healthy weight and to socialize him. He quickly captured the hearts of staff members and volunteers alike. After being cleared for adoption, this sweetheart found his home in mid-February. He is thriving there and even has a doggie pal whom he adores.

“I’m so happy he is at his forever home. We love him so much, and I know he loves us. He is over 50 pounds now! And he loves to be silly.”

After Zeus’ bumpy start and tough times, nothing could please us more than to see the term “silly” used to describe him!
