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.

Is there anything better than seeing a once down-on-its-luck animal living the good life? We don’t think so either! Take Widget, who as a 2-month-old kitten came in as a stray in late October. That’s not the kind of weather you want to be out in! Widget got adopted a few weeks later, and we hear from her new family that she not only acquired a new name, but is also a practiced traveler! Once known as Widget, we’re pleased to introduce to you at this time, the one and only - "Mavis Rachel Sparkle".

“She is the perfect kitty for our family. We even took her on a road trip to Duluth over the weekend! We’re happy to have found her!”

It’s great to hear that Mavis Rachel Sparkle is doing purr-fectly! This is you helping us help them find happiness.
