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


Ezra, now Waylon

This adoption story is about a dog who needed someone to take a chance on him! Then called Ezra, the 2-year-old mixed breed dog came into the shelter in September with a rep of an overly energetic dog who would need a patient owner. Well, this pupper, now named Waylon, found the right human (who found out that Waylon is a Border Collie/Shepherd mix).


“Waylon has been adjusting to his forever home well! He really loves to play fetch and run. My family was skeptical about me getting a dog after we lost our family dog last year, but they have welcomed him to the family. He wants to be by my side every second of the day and he hates when I go to work but is always happy to see me when I get home. He follows me around like my shadow. He has even made new doggy friends he loves to play with, his two golden doodles, Otis and Mack. … I also forgot to mention he shares the bed with me every night even though he isn't the greatest with sharing my bed... I love my buddy and do not regret the decision I made to give him a good home!”
