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!


Is there anything better than watching a puppy grow up?

Maybe watching a kitten grow up – they’re at least tied.

This adoption story is about the puppy Cera, who was adopted in May. Her new home has chickens, which has been entertaining for this youngster! Her family recently got her DNA tested, too, and discovered she is mainly a German Shepherd, but she also is part Chow Chow, Mastiff, and Rottweiler.

“We lost our beloved Lucy last September and were finally ready to open our hearts to a new puppy. It’s so much fun watching her new experiences; learning how to go up and down stairs, jumping off the couch (still too high to jump up). She is totally infatuated with her big brother Cinco – every time she hears his collar jingle she’s on the move. Thankfully he has been very patient with her and it’s great to see them occasionally snuggle together (you can see his expression is priceless). She also enjoys hanging out with the 4 chickens – she is really good with them and will eat corn with them every morning and even likes sunflower seeds. I call her my little ninja because she is so quiet – I will be looking for her and there she is under my feet in a split second. Lastly, after she’s worn out from playing or a long walk she loves to sleep under my desk or behind my chair, but the minute I get up she’s right by my side as she won’t continue sleeping.”

Can you blame her? She doesn’t want to miss a minute with her new family!
