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!

Annie now Tilly

Tri-County Humane Society is lucky to have a fantastic roster of fosters. In fact, last year we placed 1,196 animals in foster homes! One of those fosters was a dog named Annie, who came in to Tri-County Humane Society in November 2022 after having puppies. Her puppies all found homes, then it was Annie’s turn! Now Annie is named Tilly (or Silly Tilly).

“She is getting along well with our 4-year-old Lab named Grady and our four cats. At first she would try to pick up the cats by the neck like she would a puppy. I am sure she was thinking, ‘Well, they are about the size of my puppies.’ She has since gotten over that and she lays next to them all the time now. They get along great for the most part. … It took her a while to warm up to my husband but now she will lay up on the bed with him and get her belly rubs. She is learning that when she does something wrong the worst she gets is a lecture from him. She did not like getting into cars and recently she actually jumped up into the back of my Jeep on her own to come home from the dog park. She is helping Grady lose some weight (he is overweight now) because she loves playing and wrestling with him. We have been leaving her out of a crate when we are gone just a few hours to see how she does and she has not chewed anything she is not supposed to. She is just about ready to be a full-fledged house dog without a crate at all. Tilly (Annie) is a rock star and very smart she learns the rules very quickly. She is at her forever home.”

I think the best way to deal with fitting in is to be yourself. It sounds hard, but in the end, it's much easier than pretending to be something you're not.  Meaghan Jette Martin
