Bella's Story

We lost our dog of sixteen years last November and didn't know if we could find a dog just as good and sweet to fill the void his loss left. Nearly six months later, we decided to check out the Humane Society and see if we could find another dog. Our kids were excited at the prospect. My husband went down three times and the third time Bella caught his eye. She won him over. She is great with our kids and even loves our cat (also from the Humane Society). She loves people. Every morning she is so excited for everyone to wake up and greet her.

Neo's Story

I went to the Humane Society to meet a dog my husband and I had seen online. The dog I came in to meet had been adopted just hours before I got there, but I decided to walk through anyway and see who was there that day. I walked past Neo a couple times, then decided to take him outside for a walk. I knew so quickly when we were outside together that I wanted him to come home with me. I called my husband, and he came to meet Neo, and this adorable dog turned on all his charm and won my husband's heart. We took him home that evening.

Eddie's Story

We have waited so many years to get a dog. After 5 years of allergy shots we are now able to adopt. I met Eddie, (name changed from CJ) and took him for a short walk. He was so sweet, mild mannered and stayed close to me. It was crazy mad dog love on my end! I knew I had found my pet. I was completely overjoyed to find he was 100% house broken. He learned to sit within a couple hours. He goes nuts whenever he hears a "squeaky toy" noise. My son downloaded a squeaky toy app to play with Eddie. Makes my heart happy to see them play. We are a very lucky family to have Eddie. Thank you HS.

Shadow's Story

My husband and I went to the humane society not knowing what to do. All we knew was we wanted a dog. We looked at all sizes, once I walked passed my shadow's (originally thunder) cage I stopped for a double take of him. I started walking away and he started to bark at me to come back. When I took him out to have some free time I knew the three of us were meant to be. We took him home and he is just the sweetest thing. He tries to be my tiny lap dog all the time. He is everything my husband and I hoped for in a puppy. Thank you HSU for my new baby!

Hank's Story

I saw a picture of an adorable Pointer Mix named Chance on the Humane Society website. 2 days later, I went to the shelter and asked to meet him. While we were playing together outside, this huge 11 month old, 60 pound dog sat in my lap and laid his head on my shoulder. I immediately fell in love and adopted him that day. I renamed him Hank, and he has been the greatest dog. We are 2 peas in a pod. We both love being outside and going on adventures.
