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!


Of course, puppies and kittens will always be lil’ attention-grabbers, but there are plenty of people who come to TCHS looking for a senior pet.

This adoption story is from a family who did just that, adding “Ashes,” a 14-year-old Pomeranian mix, to their home in late December 2023. Ashes is now known as Ashcroft “Ash” Dominic, and he’s fitting right in with the rest of his new family’s “herd,” as they put it.

“Ash loves to dance, play bow, and bark when we get home. He comes running with our other dogs and gets excited. He loves to sit on laps for petting, but also loves to bark at us and have us talk to him.”

His family says that Ash’s constant barking is just one of the many perks of owning a Pomeranian.

“Ash sleeps with some of our dogs next to our bed. Every morning, he joins the other dogs for morning meds. He doesn't get any meds, so my husband gives him a treat so he is prepared if he ever needs meds. Ash also likes to take jaunts in our trees and find rabbits. It definitely adds some time onto the lunch hour when we have to chase him down (we have an acreage).”

But in all seriousness, “Ash really is a wonderful dog. We love him.”
