Luna's Story

We adopted Luna, an older black lab from the HSU around 4.5 years ago. She was gray, scared, and had a limp. I bet a lot of people walked past this wonderful animal before we came around. Luna was sweet, and seemed very smart. She convinced us to adopt her by rolling over when we asked. She turned out to be the best dog I've ever had. She was smart, sweet, well behaved, good with people and other dogs. Not so good with deer, raccoons and skunks. My family loved her so much. I often thought that I would love to meet her former owners and ask why on earth they would give her up.

Samantha & Kato's Story

I had recently lost my cat that I had had for more than sixteen years. I was missing her SO badly. I came to the Humane Society and they helped me find these two beautiful babies. I have had Samantha and Kato for almost two weeks now. They have already brought so much love and joy into our house. Thank you for helping me find the perfect fit for our family!

Socii's Story

When we adopted Socii (previously Lokie, but the names were similar enough that he made the switch right away!), we were looking for an anxiety support animal. I was having horrible insomnia, nightmares, and trouble sleeping. I had previously owned rats that were content to be held at all hours of the day. whenever I needed something to calm me down, but they died quite early in their lives and I was left without a pet. My parents took me to the shelter and I looked around for a cat.

Naomi's Story

Our two little dogs are Mia and Browny. They were adopted 7-8 years ago when I was 7. We had gone down just to look. When me and my mom got there from the store my dad who didn't understand just look, had decided he liked the miniature pinscher he was looking at. After discussing it my parents decided we could get him. Deciding he needed a friend we went back in to look for another small dog. We found Mia behind the door. My dad brought her out and we decided on her too. Now Mia is my best friend and we do everything together. In December of 2015 we decided to adopt another dog.
