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.



We’re proud to share the story of a family who found their “perfect dog” at Tri-County Humane Society! Riley, a 6-year-old Lab mix, who was an outdoor dog, quickly became a favorite of staff and volunteers.  The dog walkers adored him because he didn’t pull and had such great manners. Despite these excellent attributes, Riley didn’t get much attention on the adoption floor. But, just one day shy of a month with us, Riley found his family. A family worth waiting for!!

“Thank you for Riley! He is such a blessing to our family. My son said he was made for us by God and God meant for us to be with him.

We did keep his name, Riley. He is now indoors as we are learning more about each other. My kids are absolutely smitten and my husband, who didn’t want a pet, said I found his weakness and he is loving having Riley around!”

The adopters have been asked where they got such a well-behaved dog. “I told them to check you guys out!” We appreciate the referral, and most of all appreciate you giving Riley such a great home and reason to smile!
