Galaxy's Story

The day my fiancé and I adopted Galaxy "Lexi" we actually really had no intention of getting a puppy. We've talked about getting a puppy for a while and we both wanted one but we were going to wait a little while longer. That day we were going to go swimming but I suggested stopping by the shelter to pet the dogs and just look around for a minute then we could go to the pool, so my fiancé being the amazing guy he is agreed and drove us there. We went right to the dogs and the minute we saw Galaxy and played with her for a few minutes we fell in love.

Bela's Story

Last Saturday I adopted Bela, a 3 month old Russian Blue/mix kitten who is just the most affectionate and loving kitten ever. She has adjusted beautifully and is enjoying her new life.

Bela has a kitty tower and likes to look out the window where she can watch three active bird feeders. We call it her "kitty TV".

Please send along my thanks and these photos to Bela's (Formerly named Teagan) to her foster mom, Elizabeth Stalling, and let her know that Bela is safe, warm, well fed, and well loved!

Sincerely,
Fred 

Aeva's Story

We adopted Aeva on July 31, 2015. She had been at the shelter for a little over a month. She has become the Queen Bee at our home. She settled right in after just a few minutes, and has quickly won the hearts of all of our friends and family. She is so patient with my daughters and our dogs. We couldn't imagine life without her and we are so so grateful that you brought her into our lives!! Thank you so much.

Mesa's Story

In March of 2015 we came to the Humane Society so our daughter could adopt a dog. In the small dog room, farthest kennel back on the left was a little chihuahua mix (we think part husky as well.) The Humane Society named her "Sandy." She arrived three days before from L.A. and was listed as five or six years old. No information came with her from L.A. She wasn't barking or whining, just full of excitement, wagging her tail and standing up against the gate in hopes we would come her way, and we did.

Zoey's Story

When we first met Zoey, we thought she was adorable. We have taken her camping and what hound wouldn't enjoy all of those smells! LOL. She had been adopted 4 other times and she is only a year old. I know that she was misunderstood. She is so lovable that she just wants to be petted and touched. She is a handful and still needs a lot of work but she is here to stay. She runs full throttle in the back yard and loves to sleep in the sun. The biggest problem with her is she steals food from anywhere that she can reach.

Tootsie's Story

We adopted Tootsie on July 31st, 2015. We had her on trial for a few weeks prior and fell in love. We named her Tootsie because she is so sweet. She fits in perfectly with my husband, me and our dog Boo Radley. She is a sweet, timid girl that loves to be loved on. She is a professional sleeper, loves to be tucked into a blanket and holds the title for "Best Snore" in our house. Her pink belly with black spots remind me of a mini cow and is totally adorable.
