Harley's Story

I adopted Harley back on April 03-04 (I can't remember the exact date) and I just remember we were going to the shelter to look at dogs after our other dog we had adopted had passed away of old age. Well, of course, we found a bunch of dogs we loved and went to the front to inquire about them. When I went up front to ask about the other dogs the girl asked me "Did you see Harley?" - I looked at my list and said no..no Harley. She said can I show you Harley? I said sure. In a Kennel scared and a little intimidated was a black and white Aussie, named Harley.

Flower's Story

For a good 2 months, my family and I were looking for the perfect fit for us. We then came across Flower on the HSU website and thought we could go visit her. The following day, we drove all the way down from Vineyard to see this cute pup. We went to her kennel and started playing with her. She looked so happy! Flower immediately started licking all of us and everyone grew a love for her in just a few moments of meeting her! Now almost 9 months later, that little scruffy puppy is our family's best friend. And boy is she loved.

Babe's Story

I've loved cats since I was little but as a teenager I became allergic. I heard that if you lived with one cat for a while it would be ok, and I really wanted a cat of my own. Babe was immediately very friendly, and when I brought her home she followed me out of the room and everywhere I went.

Now if you sit down you can bet she will claim your lap, and she loves having her chest rubbed. My husband wasn't too eager about having a cat but now I think he loves her more than me!

Benny's Story

I adopted Benny about two years ago. He was so timid and skittish. He was afraid of people and other dogs. He'd flinch when you went to pet him. He didn't know how to play with toys. With love and patience, Benny has become the dog he was always meant to be and I'm grateful to have him in our family. He loves snuggles, playing fetch, learning new tricks, and going to doggy day care. As you can see from the video here, he especially loves being picked up from doggy day care.

Winky's Story

My boyfriend and I decided on a whim one day to come in and walk dogs. Before we left we ended up walking through the cats and "just looking". It only took me 3 days to decide I was going back for a kitty! When we came in to look we knew we were specifically looking for a black cat since they have such a hard time being placed into homes. We had 3 cats we were trying to choose from and decided to spend some time with one. We got the smallest most timid cat first and spent some quality time with her. We knew without a doubt that she was the one we wanted.

Chip's Story

I was able to have another family member come into our lives... His name is CHIP. He could not have been a better fit for our family and my other dog Saydee. We love him so much and it has only been 2 days. Thank you very much for allowing us to have him.

Kenai's Story

I just wanted to update the HSU family on how Kenai, now more affectionately known as Kee. My sweet boy has amazed his vet with his ability to trust me. We were able to do x-rays of his back and hips while on his back with no sedative. I put him on the table and he laid his head back on my shoulder while I spoke to him in Gaelic. His vet said in his 20 years he had never seen such a thing. I knew when I saw this beautiful boy on the website and heard his story and that nobody would take a chance on him that he had to be mine.

Jacque & Jesper

In 2001 mom took us as a family to the Humane Society to look for a kitten as luck would have it we came home with two. We named them Sugar and Spice because they were both white and Sugar pure white with pink ears had the sweetest personality and Spice was super feisty with a little bit of orange they were bundles of joy and super healthy happy kittens until spice ate some plastic and had to have surgery when he was a couple years old.
