Winnie's Story

Last October, our huge family Labrador passed away. I knew that I needed a companion because I am home alone for the majority of the day for the whole week. I also knew I needed someone small and cuddly. I went into the HSU with admittedly low expectations. Then, I met little Rigby on a warm March day. He was so nervous and shaky, but he still cuddled right up to me. It really was love at first sight. I re-named him Winnie, after WInnie The Pooh. He got back up to a healthy weight quickly, and really started to live up to his namesake-he is a big fan of sleeping, eating, and being lazy.

Indy's Story

We adopted our mutt-mix Indiana about a year and a half ago, and we couldn't love him more. He was picked up as a stray, so we don't know his back story, but he was so terrified and timid when we first brought him home. After a couple days, he warmed up, and now he's an amazing, playful, adventurous pup full of love. He loves snuggling with us on the couch, going on hikes, and playing tug-of-war. He's helped both me and my husband through emotionally difficult times - we're so grateful for him every day. We can't imagine life without our Indy. Thank you Human Society!

Cowboy's Story

My Husband adopted "Dollar" for me for my Birthday. He is a great little boy. His NEW name is COWBOY. He was really nervous at first but in the last week, he has adapted very well. He had been put in the HSU for 3 times. Happy to say never again. He gets along very well with my other dogs and my cats. He is a little Papillon. Very sweet and loves his family. Thanks for having him there to adopt. We love him!!!

Miloh's Story

My furry baby's name is Miloh. He was known at the HSU as Baymax. He was only 9 months old when I adopted him in May 2017 and had been returned a couple times which broke my heart. I searched and searched through all the kennels and was distraught as I didn't think I would leave there with a companion. As we were about to leave, I saw a volunteer who had just walked him and was trying to get him to go back in his kennel. He dropped to the floor and was pouting. I knew immediately that my heart wanted him!

Abbi's Story

We adopted our dog about two months ago. Her shelter name at the time was Marvel .She is now known as our Abbi girl. She came from a shelter in Arizona. Then was adopted two other times from the shelter and returned. After we were told that, we were definitely a little hesitant. With some stability,patience and love she has turned out to be the most amazing dog. She blended naturally with our family and will forever be loved. We are so happy to have her a part of our lives!
