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!

Jack, now Jackie

Foster homes can be a great avenue for our shy and anxious animals, the ones who often get overlooked in the shelter, to relax and decompress. It was a first-time foster who gave that opportunity to Jack, a 1-year-old female Lab mix who was overly stressed at the shelter after her arrival in late November. The foster took Jack into her home as part of our Adoption Ambassadors program, in which TCHS fosters keep the shelter pet at their home and act as the agent for their adoption. Jack found her home in early January; she’s now Jackie and is a totally happy, relaxed doggie.

“She immediately got along with our other dog, as well as both of the cats – as well as both of the kids!”

Thank you to the adopters and the foster who helped make this happy tale possible.

Today I feel better than I did yesterday. Today I feel more safe & secure than I did yesterday. Today I am more understood than I was yesterday. Today I am more adoptable than I was yesterday.
