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!

Bun Bun

Tri-County Humane Society adopted out 361 “other” pets last year, meaning those who aren’t cats or dogs. This adoption story is one of those “others” – but to the people who love them, they’re stars, they’re best friends, they’re family members!

Bun Bun, who is now 8 months old, came to the shelter in late November 2023. He found the perfect match – a former TCHS volunteer who has been a longtime advocate for her rabbit friends. She made the trip from the Twin Cities to adopt Bun Bun.

“I adopted Bun Bun after my rabbit of 10 years passed away. I was heartbroken and saw that Tri-County’s small animal room was overflowing, and I just knew I had to help out another small critter. I had all of the supplies and room, after all. Bun Bun has really started getting comfortable with us over the last few weeks. He likes to follow his mom, dad, and fur siblings around the house (he's particularly fond of the cat). He even hangs out with us in the living room when we watch TV! He loves hay, salad, and getting scratched behind the ears. If you pet him long enough, he will thank you with lots of bunny kisses.

He is the perfect addition to our fur family and we hope to have many years with him.”

We were so “hoppy” to read this update. We hope you continue to do well in your new home, Bun Bun!

“When you adopt a shelter pet, you save two lives. The one you adopt and the one who takes its place.” Unknown
