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.
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.
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!
