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.
We adopted Angel in March of this year, she is such a sweetheart. Angel is a chatty girl, she meows when we get home, when she wants us to make room for her on the couch, and whenever she wants attention. Angel is a snuggle bug and will curl up with you and nap for hours. Unfortunately, she has canc...Read Moreer which means our time with her is limited, but until that time comes we’re loving her up. She’s a super happy girl and doing well despite being sick. We couldn’t be happier to have such a cool cat as part of our family.
I adopted my little kitten Leo (formerly Nikola Tesla) two weeks ago at the Adopt-a-thon. I am so happy to have him in my life. He has brought such a joy and bright energy to our household. He now enjoys spending his days playing with his new big sister Gloria, suntanning in the window, sleeping in ...Read Morehis cat tree, and getting plenty of cuddles. I am so grateful to be able to watch him grow into the beautiful, funny, happy boy he is becoming. Thank you to the GHS for bringing us together and thank you to his foster mom for taking such good care of him!
I adopted Tippy just a couple weeks ago and he has been such a friendly companion! I was warned he might be shy, but he doesn't leave my side when I'm at home! For the first couple days, I was even worried he had a breathing problem, but it was just him purring constantly. He's the best friend I cou...Read Moreld ask for!
Frank (formerly Bert) came into our lives late March and we couldn’t be happier! Frank is a lovable little snuggle bug who loves everyone he meets! He fit right into our family instantly! Thanks GHS for allowing us to adopt this awesome little guy, he’s certainly a welcome addition!
My boyfriend and I adopted Theo in the middle of April of this year. As soon as we laid eyes on him we knew we had to take him home! Theo has been a loving gent since day one, and he just continues to show us more and more love as the days go by. He has quite the soft spot for mom, and gets jealous ...Read Morewhen dad is giving her hugs and kisses! We usually resolve the issue by cuddling him and giving him kisses as well. Theo has been a therapy cat for me in a sense as well, and helps me get by on tough days. We have developed such a strong bond, and he has become a huge part of my life. Thank you GHS for introducing us to our little (not so little) furball!
Tia is the sweetest, most perfect addition to my life! She has a fun, loving, and curious personality. She loves to be near me at all times and enjoys being held and cuddled. She is often relaxing in her favourite chair and loves to play with string. She meows when she is hungry, wanting a snuggl...Read Moree, or while she jogs over after calling her name. I’m so thankful she is mine and loves her forever home💛
We adopted Boris just over a year ago from the GHS. He’s a big boy with some ongoing health issues, but with lots of love, from GHS and working with our vet he’s got everything under control! He loves showing off his toys and struts around the neighbourhood on his walks. We’d never adopted bef...Read Moreore Boris, but will never go back!
We were looking for a mature kitty and saw Raven (age 10) on your website. She was at the Petsmart for a special adoption day so we drove over from Waterloo. Raven was timid but a very sweet girl. She wasn’t happy with being in the cardboard carrier or the car ride and managed to claw her way o...Read Moreut before we had left Guelph. I held her for the whole trip and gripping her tightly, carried her into her new home. It took her awhile to warm up to us but before long she became a much loved family member. She had probably never seen a dog before but she became friends with our 80 pound collie/shepherd. It will be 3 years in August that Raven came to live with us.
I adopted Charlie (formally Chandler) in September 2016. This big lug was sweet, inquisitive and goofy. When I first brought him home he was a little skeptical he would be staying but over time he has become the most loving and loyal friend I could ever have found. He loves going for walks, sleeping...Read More by the pool, or playing with his favourite toy. He has bonded with a cat and they’re inseparable. Charlie is the definition of loving forgiveness and I can’t imagine life without him. Thank you for finding him until I could give him his forever home.
I adopted Luna in February and was warned that she would be very intimidated and shy by the new environment and will take a while to adjust to it. But 2 days after being adopted, she already opened up and has started cuddling me non-stop. She loves attention and will do anything to get it including ...Read Morelicking your face and chasing you around the house. I'm so happy to have Luna in my home!
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.
