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!


Any fan of little dogs knows they can leave a big impact in your life (and on your heart). This adoption story is about a 2-year-old Chihuahua mix who is a recent adoptee from Tri-County Humane Society. Chester arrived at the shelter in mid-March as part of a transfer facilitated through Animal Humane Society; he was adopted three days later. And even though he’s only been with his people a short time, Chester is already right at home.

“Chester is our perfect new member of our home. He simply loves all people. He’s still going to the door when he needs to potty. We’re working on ‘quiet’ when he hears someone outside our door, but (he’s) a fast learner. Definitely a lap dog and loves to cuddle. Loves his walks. He’s curious about new outings like the pet store -  with walking so much, he needed a good harness and new outfits. Thank you so much for our Chester.”
