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!

Yoda, now Pavlova

At Tri-County Humane Society, we’re often asked: "Who names your animals?" Well, we generally always try to keep their names if we know it; with stray animals, staff names them, although we do take requests sometimes!

This adoption story is about a cat who first got its name from a Jedi Master, then from a famous ballet dancer. Hey, inspiration can come from anywhere! An older kitten then known as Yoda came to the shelter in January; she was adopted a few weeks later. She is thriving in her new home and getting to know her older brother, Fuquon.

Yoda’s new name is Pavlova, inspired by the famous ballerina Anna Pavlova, her new human writes. “I teach ballet, and she is just as light on her feet as my beautiful dancers!”

"The dog may be wonderful prose, but only the cat is poetry." French Proverb
