We love hearing from our adopters and how each animal is doing in their new home! Here are some Happy Tails that have been shared with us from previous adopters of the Guelph Humane Society.
I adopted Pecan the gerbil from the GHS at the end of January, and I thought I'd update you on how she is doing! Pecan has settled into her new home really well. It took a little while for her to get comfortable, but now that she's settled and everything is familiar to her, she's as happy as can be ...Read Moreand is not shy at all. Although she doesn't like to be handled very much, Pecan LOVES attention and loves showing off her excellent chewing and burrowing skills. Her favorite things are running on her wheel, chewing on cardboard boxes and paper towel tubes, exploring her playpen where she has plenty of space to run around, and,like most gerbils, she really loves hoarding food! She also loves it when you talk to her while she's playing. I am so glad I decided to take Pecan home the day I came to visit her at GHS. She has been such a sweet, loving presence in my life and has also provided hours of entertainment. Who knew that such a tiny creature could have such a big personality?Thank you GHS for all you do to find loving homes for sweet creatures big and small!
I first met Indigo in July with my wife as a volunteer. Immediately I fell in love with her. I've never had a dog before but all I wanted was to bring her home. I would go in to volunteer at least 3 times a week (selfishly only to see her) and we would just lay in the grass. Finally after 1.5 months...Read More of seeing her passed over and spending so much time in the shelter I had to bring her home. I visited her Labour Day Monday and took her home September 5th, 2017. I knew she had her challenges and it would take time and attention for her to feel home. But what she's helped me remember is patience, both for myself and with others. Each day holds a new learning experience, a chance to get better. Our past can hold us back if we let it, or we can decide to take a chance and push forward. Where I first saw a dog scared of my house and everyone around, I now see a smiling face who loves adventures, new friends, car rides, and cuddles. She's my best friend. She's helped me more than she will ever know.
We adopted Nitro (formerly Arthur) from the Guelph Humaine Society at the beginning of February and we could not be happier to give him a loving forever home. He has come out of his shell so much in such a short period of time. Nitro loves to chew on his log house and play with his toys. We love see...Read Moreing him fly around and binky. We can’t wait to introduce him fully to his brother, as we hope they will become good friends. Nitro is such a happy, curious and playful boy! We can’t wait to see him grow even more!
We met Ginger (now Lucky McFluffs) back in March 2017 at the GHS on a day where persistence paid off. Ten months later, she has earned the nicknames "Kitty Underfoot" and "Monorail Cat" as she tends to sit on only one leg. From the very beginning, Lucky has been full of energy and incredible affecti...Read Moreon - she even greets us at the door looking for pats or hugs. One of her favourite things to do is get between you and your book when reading, as if anything could be more interesting than her! Her older kitty sister Fae likes her too, even if Lucky has way more energy than her.
I wanted to give you an update on Mya (formerly Miley). We adopted Mya in January 2016, and she recently had her two year adoption-versary! Mya settled quickly into our household, and gets along with our (sometimes loud) kids. She enjoys sleeping in the clean laundry, bird-watching out the back wind...Read Moreow, and keeping an eye on neighbourhood happenings from the front window. Thank you for helping us bring her into our family!
Just wanted to give an update on Mooshu. She has been a part of our family for about a year and half now and we couldn't imagine it any other way! At first she was shy and it took a bit for her to come out of her shell but she truly has now. Once she realized she was in her fur-ever home she became ...Read Morethe ruler of the house. In true tortoise shell fashion she is full of personality and very talkative. She knows what she wants and will make it very clear. Lately she has been demanding that we turn the fireplace on so she can lay in front of it in true Queen fashion. We love our Mooshu and couldn't imagine not having her as part of the family!
I adopted Sadie in May 2012 from GHS after being surrendered by a young family who could no longer take care of her. I am happy to say that Sadie has been the absolute best thing that has ever happened in my life. She is my “doghter”. She is full of snuggles and sweet kisses. When she was at t...Read Morehe shelter she was labeled as dog-reactive, and even though she is reactive on-leash, she gets along well with other dogs off-leash on trails, when at Country Paws, and with her little (big) brother, Finnigan—a Saint Bernard. Thank you GHS for choosing me to be her forever home!
Hello, Baloo is settling in very well! His new sister Beans is accepting him faster than anticipated. The only down fall is that I have lost my place on the couch! Seriously though, Baloo had made our family feel complete again and he is such a good kitty.
Willy was surrendered to GHS by a loving man who found him at the side of the road. Willy weighed only 26lbs, had two cherry eyes and wounds in his leg. The GHS team got him the medical attention he needed and he was ready to adopt. He was featured on the GHS’ weekly spot on Rogers showing availab...Read Morele animals and my Mom called me immediately. “You have to see this poor boy” she said. So I took the day off work ,packed up my kids and my other bulldog and we drove 2 hours to meet him. It was love at first sight. He just wanted to be next to my Lulu and nuzzled right into her neck. 3.5 years later and Willy is a happy boy. We couldn’t imagine our family without him!
We are happy to say that Finn stole our hearts the day we met him. We knew that he had claimed us the minute he hopped into the car on our drive home from the shelter. He's a complete cuddle monster and loves to give kisses the minute we get home. Thank you again for considering us to be his foreve...Read Morer home. Ellen & Todd
Dot and Chip (now Leela and Gilmour) are doing great. They are very playful, cuddly and definitely get along with each other very well. We couldn't have asked for any better with them!
These satellite ears and little legs have grown into a playful and attentive ball of energy. Molly continues to bring such a spark to life. Happy to report she’s thriving!
