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.
Hello! Bam Bam's momma here. Just wanted to share another "little" update. My old man is absolutely THRIVING! He's the funniest guy. Brings SO much joy to everyone he meets. This summer I introduced him to a friend's puppy and he did awesome! He even has his own little puppy brother now!!! He's been...Read More teaching and tolerating the constant ball of energy, even when he's annoyed and just wants a nap. I did a breed DNA test on him because my curiosity just HAD to! Mr. Bams is: 50% pug, 20.3% Shih Tzu, 18.7% Pekingese & 11% Japanese Chin! Such a fun little mix! Bam Bam is very well mannered, but definitely has his senior moments.... aka will pretend he can't hear me, and then will "argue" with me. (He has become very vocal, it's hilarious.) Most of the time it's him demanding belly rubs! He will prop himself up and start swatting his paw until his demands are met. Haha! He is happy, healthy & the best friend a gal could ever ask for. Thank you GHS and all supporters/ volunteers that make these unions possible.
I adopted Rosie in February as I moved into my first solo apartment and decided I needed a little friend. She has been such a great addition to my life I couldn’t imagine it without her. She’s cuddly and clever and loves to burrow under blankets and snooze the day away. She loves car rides and s...Read Moretaring out the window, just watching the world go by. She’s a great Work From Home co-worker too!
I was looking to adopt an FIV+ kitty and adopted Romeo in October. We’ve been together for a month now and he’s become my little shadow! He’s brought so much joy to my life with his silly, loveable personality. His favourite thing to do is play with his ribbon wand toy and chase a foil ball ar...Read Moreound the house. Every day he gets more playful and curious - I never know what mischief he’ll get up to next!
These two were part of the 105 cats surrendered in January 2020 and they joined our family at the end of April when contactless adoption began. They have settled in well. Sherlock is very affectionate when things are calm but startles easily. He loves cuddles and boxes, and collects small objects...Read More. Watson is our adventure kitty - he always wants to know what's going on and is certain that he can help. He is often sprawled on the back of a desk chair since he's not allowed on the warm laptop keyboard.
Spring (now Roo) was rescued by GHS after she was hit by a car and had to have her right hind leg amputated. She’s recovered beautifully and has gained so much confidence since I first met her. It is amazing to see her blossom into a sweet, playful kitten with lots of important kitty opinions. Her...Read More favourite things include: catnip bubbles, wand toys, sleeping in the sun, playing with her big brother, and snuggling up in bed to watch Planet Earth with Meowmie.
We adopted Donna (now Penelope) in September and she was such a shy little kitten and now she’s a ball of energy who loves to play all day and snuggle all night. She has been the perfect addition to our family.
We heard about Franco the finch on the radio one day in June 2017 for a segment about pets needing a home and for some reason couldn't resist! He's been bringing his beautiful song into our lives ever since. He adores his fat finchie wife, Fabia - and they now share a large custom enclosure with 3 o...Read Morether rescued finches from Hamilton. He's still our original baby though, and when we call his name he always answers with his squeak that sounds different from the rest.
I adopted Paddington (now Baymax) in 2015 after the loss of my oldest cat. He was shy at first but quickly came around and became the oddball loving cat he is today. He is loved by his furry companions and every visitor that he loves greeting.
We adopted Archie from GHS just over a year ago and it’s amazing to see how much he’s changed and the trust he’s developed. He is cage-free and loves running around the entire house, even up and down the stairs. He is the sweetest little guy.
Elanor and her mother Agatha (now Amber) are the sweetest cats ever! I adopted them in August 2020 and it was the BEST decision ever! Elanor was a bit shy at first but now both of them are the most loving cats ever! Adopting both of them together was amazing because of how outgoing Amber already was...Read More! Elanor learned how fun humans can be and now they are both living their best lives. It’s so funny watching them running around after each other. They also DEMAND head scratches and boss around our pups! They were not impressed at first, but now they play with each other and I’ve even caught the pups giving the cats kisses :) I love them both so much!
We adopted Lucy (formerly Fiona) at the end of the summer of 2010, a few months after losing our beloved 13-year-old dog Dixie. She has been the perfect companion and playmate since joining our family, and at ten years of age continues to be very playful and affectionate (and from time to time, stil...Read Morel a little bit mischievous!) Thank you for bringing us together.
My lovely boy Fernando was adopted in June of 2019 - he was being featured at campus estates and I fell in love with him. He is the silliest, sweetest cat. He loves to drink/play with running water and will often sit in the sink and meow until I turn it on for him. He’s such a suck and loves to ...Read Morebe held and just loves to cuddle. He has so much personality and I just adore him!
