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 or message us on our Facebook page for future publication. We love to hear how our alumni are doing!


Animals adopted from a shelter adjust to their new homes at different paces. For some, there’s no wait time; for others, it can take weeks (or months). And for some, like Nigel the cat, it’s a very quick turnaround!

“Nigel was very timid when we first got him. He would hide under our bed the first night, and then I woke up the morning after we got him and he followed me into the bathroom and followed me around all morning, Since then, he’s been such a lover. If there’s an open lap, he’s sitting on it. He loves his wand toy more than anything – if he wants to play, he grabs it and brings it to us to tell us he wants to play!”

Vicki Davis, CAWA:  Most of the cats I’ve known are pretty quick to communicate what they want (or don’t want!). Nigel apparently follows the same path – and it sounds like it’s working well for him!
