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!


This adoption story is about a kitty whose family makes sure he’s always the star of every holiday, whether it be Christmas or Valentine’s Day. (They’ve done lots of cute photos to coincide with special occasions!)

So while this story is published on April Fools’ Day, it’s no joke that this cat is the purr-fect addition to this household.

An older black kitten then known as Dodger came to Tri-County Humane Society in October 2021; he then spent some time in foster care. He was adopted in December, and he got a new name: Blackwater, inspired by a family member’s favorite video game.

“He is the most amazing cat we’ve ever had. He loves his family and loves to cuddle and give hugs and kisses.”

We know that no matter the day, this cat is always going to be celebrated like a favorite holiday!
