Happy Tails Adoption Stories



We were looking to adopt a golden, and we were thrilled when you called to tell us that you had a retriever mix available.Well Oliver is no more a retriever mix than I am, but he's as sweet and lovable as any of the 4 goldens we had previously. Thank you for bringing us together.

We went to pick up a toy for my other cat and saw this fella in one of the off-site adoption centers. We were drawn to him because of his beautiful markings, similar to his now sister, Lottie. When he approached us, it was like he already knew he was coming home with us, and he's fit perfectly into our family ever since. We have since nicknamed him Tigger, because he always has his tail curled up, and his favorite things to do are play with his best friend, Lottie, and snuggle up with us at night.

Thank You Peggy Adam for changing my life on May 24, 2003 when I adopted an approximately 1 yr old cat who I named Sweetie. I had never been so scared, as I had never had a pet before. I was afraid of her, not knowing if I could take care of her. She was the best thing that happened to me. We were best friends until her health caused me to put her down on April 20th, 2017.

"Sadie "

My boyfriend and I adopted Sadie back in February from Peggy Adams. Since she has been in our home, she has brought love and laughter! She loves playing with her piggies and cuddling. But most of all, she loves running on the beach! She has improved significantly with her behavior with people, and other dogs, and we are so happy to have her!!

"China "

After losing my lifelong pal Bandit, I wanted to move on and get another cat. I looked at many shelters but none of the cats resonated with me. Then I came here - this was by far the nicest shelter I'd been to, and I found the most beautiful and sweetest cat in the world - China! When I saw her, I knew I wanted to adopt her. She was the only cat to immediately come up to me and cuddle and kiss me, acting like she knew me already, and when I brought her home, the poor thing was scared but when she saw me she immediately cuddled in my lap knowing it's going to be alright. It's been a couple of months since I got her, and she is the princess of the house and my little fur baby.

penny now Mabel

"penny now Mabel"

Has been one of the best cats - so loving! She's never bit me or scratched me, and she gets along with Razzle Dazzle the first cat I adopted from Peggy Adams. They're real close now and a real joy to have in the house . She is a sweet older cat.

Tish is definitely making herself at home, and I am very glad we found each other. She seems quite happy and content.

Archer is adjusting well and happy; he is friendly with Reva (who I adopted in December); they walk together and generally get along well. Archer is quite needy of affection (just an observation) and still needs reassurance from time to time; it makes one wonder who had him before and how he was treated. He continues to grow more comfortable in the new environment!!

Disha and Malo

"Disha and Malo"

We loved Disha from the moment we met her. Unfortunately we weren't able to bring her home that day because the person who found her said she would take her. But thankfully we got to bring her home the next day. Then, when my husband went out to get some things for her, he met Malo and brought him home that night. Everyday they sit by the window waiting for us to come home.
