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!


Anyone who has adopted an animal knows they help us as much as we help them. There’s a reason “Who Rescued Who?” is a popular slogan! This adoption story is about a cat and a human who found each other at the exact right time. A 7-year-old cat then named Callie came to the shelter in early January after her owner passed away. She was adopted two days later, and she’s now named Lily.

“I adopted her in January when I was going through some tough stuff in my personal life. In her adoption description, it said she recently lost her owner, so I think she needed someone just as much as I did. She has made a world of a difference in my life! Lily LOVES to be pet by everyone who stops by to visit, and she's a very cuddly girl. She greets me every day when I come home, and also makes sure to cuddle with me every night. While she and my other cat (Gris) don't get along very well, they set their differences aside, and will cuddle with me on the couch at the same time without fighting.”
