We adopted Archie (previously Cooper) last September. I knew instantly that I needed to save him, and we have come to realize that he saved us! Archie was too afraid to walk on a leash, go through doors, get in a car, or meed new people. He would pancake on the floor and we had to pick him up to move him. Now, he loves his new home! He has made SO many new friends and he loves to run and play. His big (little) sister, absolutely adores him and helped him see the world isn't as scary as he thought. I suffer from Manic Depression and Archie knows when I am having an episode.

This is our 7 year old rescue named Korra! She is the light of our lives! When we saw her at HSU, she was shaking and had lots of anxiety from being in a shelter. We could tell immediately that she needed a family who would give her all the attention and love. Korra loves her dad the most, but knows to run to mom to get her favorite treats. Her orange ball is her favorite toy and she has become so good at fetch! Korra touches the lives of everyone she meets and we are so grateful to HSU for the great care they took of her, until she came into our lives.
My previously adopted dog died in October. Then one day in April, at a stoplight a block from my house, listening to Public Radio, they mentioned the adoption day. Just a peek, enough to bring back the real memory of all of the dogs I had as companions, barking and sniffing their way through all of my hard and joyful times. Instead of going home, I turned down the hill, and said, I need to see and touch them just a minute. The HSU doors opened.
We lost our dog a couple months before we visited the Humane Society. She was old and it was her time. Well, our other dog was rather lonely because since a pup he's always had another dog around. So we came out to the Humane Society. We looked at a couple dogs but never found one we liked. We finally found one that one of the staff members was taking care of at her house because of medical things the dog had. After emailing her and setting up a meet and greet. We loved her. The dog's name is Goldie! Super happy dog and we even brought our dog to meet her.
We recently adopted Missy Elliot and Shakira from HSU and it was an amazing experience. Everyone was very nice and helpful throughout the process of their adoption. These two cuties have free range of the home with supervision and a shared pen for night time. They are settling in very well and are very sweet buns.
In October, HSU featured a Black Cat special right before Halloween. My husband and I went expecting to get a kitty, but fell in love with an adult cat named Riku instead. The moment I entered his room, he came to me for attention. After sitting with him in my lap for several minutes, I knew that I had not come here to choose a cat - I had come here for this cat to choose me.
I brought Bella and Izzy home on a beautiful October day. I knew I eventually wanted two or more, but had been planning on just one that day. They were playing together so well and the attendant said they came up together from LA and had been playing most of the time. The minute I held them my heart just melted.
I was nervous but had asked lots of questions to make sure they would fit my lifestyle. Having them made my home lighter and more joyful:)
We went in to HSU to meet this adorable 11-month-old rat named Luke. One of our 3 fatty ratties had recently passed away & you could tell the 2 were missing their brother.
When we stopped in, I went straight to the cage & pulled him out. The volunteer in the small animal area made a sound of amazement & told me that I was the very 1st person that Luke did not nip at. It was instant love!
