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.

Penny (now Rain)

Penny (now Rain)

This story is about a (former) Penny who turned out to be very lucky. Penny originally came to Tri-County Humane Society as a transfer from another rescue.

The 2-year-old shepherd/retriever mix was adopted then returned shortly after due to a change in the owner’s situation. But on her second stay at TCHS, Penny did not stay long – she was adopted by a family after a few days. We hear things are going fabulously –

Penny, now named Rain (she responded to it better, her family says), is doing wonderfully and even warming up to her new doggie sibling, Reba. “She is settling into our home and our hearts already! She’s a sweet, loving, happy girl.”

For a shelter animal, luck can change in an instant  - and with the perfect match!
