Happy Tails Adoption Stories



In December, I walked into a Petsmart and I saw the cutest little black kitten named Gemma. I had been debating on adding a new furry friend to my household and when I saw her, just knew she was the one. I adopted her on the spot and introduced her to my 4 year old cat. I was afraid that they wouldn't have great chemistry, but they proved me wrong. They loved each other from the second they met, and now my big boy is super happy to share his toys, litter, bed, and mommy with Gemma. She is super spoiled being the baby.

About four weeks ago, I had the pleasure of adopting Obi. It's like we picked each other. He's very intelligent and loves attention. He even wakes me up in the morning. He is just so wonderful, and I love him dearly

I had just put down my 16yr old black lab. I had been looking for a new love. I saw SHERIE online, and I raced to get her. Someone had beat me there but I waited and they didn't want her. I couldn't grab her fast enough. She fit right in with my other 4 dogs. I love her and so do the other dogs.

Bumble was about 6 month old when I adopted him. He adapted well to his new home and to my 3 month old puppy (pit-bull mix). Bumble quickly convinced me to let him sleep with me in the bedroom and once he had established this, he occupied a small part of the king sized bed. He knows my wake-up time and snuggles close to me a few minutes before my alarm goes off. He loves his cat tree and all the dog toys. Sometimes he instigates pretty rough play with the puppy but both learned to handle it very well. I could not think about life without Bumble in my life anymore. Bumble seems a bit lonely at times, and I am thinking to adopt a little cat friend for Bumble!

We are so pleased to have Coco as part of our family. She has recovered from getting her cherry eye fixed, and she's now feeling great and acting like a true Jack Russell. She has learned to swim and loves boating and chasing balls with her brother and sister. We love having her as part of our family!!

On November 26, 2016 I had to make the difficult decision to put my beloved Rocky to sleep. He was a long haired chihuahua, and he was my little boy even though he was 8 years old. I was totally devastated. I cried all the time. I started looking for another Chihuahua. I saw one on your website, but turned out by the time I drove to adopt her, a couple happened to adopt her just before I got there, and I saw them walking her out. I went back to look at the other dogs and tried to stop crying. That's when I saw Evie, now known as GiGi. She was jumping up on the cage to get my attention, and she looked so much like my Rocky but with short hair. I went back and told them I found my baby. We discussed the adoption and off we went. She sat on my lap the whole way home. She fits right in like she's been in our family for years. In fact she does a lot of the same things my Rocky did. She has helped me so much with my grieving. She is so adorable and we love her so much. Thank you!

"Coco "

Coco was a very scared puppy when I first got her. She is starting to come around. She dosen't shake any more but still has trust issues. She is such a sweet girl. She knows she is loved. I know with the patience we have for her she will be okay. She is the Queen Bee of the house and gets a lot of hugs and kisses. She went from rags to riches. She truly is being spoiled, and she is happy. All the neighbors comment on how much progress she has made and how happy she is. She loves to play with the neighbor's dogs and does very well. I will continue to work to make our lives together a happy one! Thank You Peggy Adams.
