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.
Just wanted to let you know that the budgies I have adopted are doing amazing!! :) (Brunswick - now known as *Tequila*) (Eugene & Ziggy - now known as *Star and Blueberry*) They are all really happy birds and happy to have each others company. They are all good with my...Read More dogs as well. Tequila was on my hand the first few hours I had him and is very good at listening and flying back and fourth to his cage. Star and Blueberry are still learning to open up more and following Tequila to learn. They are getting more comfortable daily which is amazing, sitting on top of their cage etc.
“Just thought I’d update you that “Cody” (we’ve renamed him Vinny) is doing so great! He is the perfect addition to our family. He’s bonded almost instantly with our cat Olive, and our 7 year old son. Two of the main reasons we wanted to adopt another cat :)”
Aurora was a stray that was hit by a car and found by a loving family who expressed interest in adopting her. "She is happy to be back with her friends. Thank you for helping her."
We have had Rusty for 3 weeks now and he has investigated every nook and corner of the house. He is very curious. When he is not in investigation mode he is snuggling up or racing down the hall chasing toys. He has brought lots of laughter to our home and I hope he is as happy as we are that he is a...Read More part of our family.
We adopted Posy from GHS 10 years ago this summer!! She took a while to be comfortable with our family, but she is the sweetest cat with the funniest and feistiest personality. She just turned 12 this year!
Sage was adopted in May 2022 and is just over a year old. She is the prettiest cat with bright green eyes. She loves to talk, especially around meal time. She loves spending time with us and never leaves our side. We love Sage.
We brought home our sweet boy on June 16th. He fit right in with the family. He loves tummy rubs and playing fetch with a crinkle Pom Pom. He runs to the door when we arrive and gives the softest meow as a greeting. He is full of energy but also loves to cuddle, the closer to our faces the better. H...Read Moree has brought us so much joy, laughter and love.
Storm was surrendered by his original family as they were moving out of the country. He was at GHS for only 1 day when we began the adoption process. After meeting him for the first time we fell in love and knew he would be the perfect addition to our little family! He’s a gentle giant with so muc...Read Moreh love to give. If we are laying down he will smother us with sloppy kisses and hugs! He loves to lay in our laps while watching movies - he doesn’t realize how big he is! On walks, he’s learned to walk beside us and to sit at every road before crossing. He’s almost 11 months now and is doing so well in his new home with his new mommy & daddy and older brother Rocky (our cat!). They’re slowly being introduced and seem to be liking each other so far 🐾🤍 thank you GHS!
Ary came to us from GHS almost 2 months ago and has become best friends with our dog! She is very vocal and makes her presence known. Ary loves to be around people and spends her time sleeping on your chest!
We adopted Taz (originally Persephone) in mid March, and we're so glad we did! She's such a brave and energetic little rabbit who really lives up to her name - she loves doing zoomies in circles and making a mess of her hay when she free roams. She also enjoys her pets and will come boop us whenever...Read More she wants attention, or she'll jump into our laps on the couch for cuddles. She's very curious, and often sneaks into rooms with us when we aren't looking, but I guess it pays to be so small and quiet! She's been adjusting really well, and started flopping almost immediately. She's also getting used to having a hedgehog brother (who we also adopted from GHS in the fall of 2021!) and has truly just been the greatest addition to the family!
Baldwin (formerly Wyn) was adopted 4 weeks ago and has settled beautifully into our family. When he is not cuddling up with one of his humans or finding a new place in our home to explore, Baldwin can be found trying to encourage his new feline sister Shadow to play. Our dog Watson is still trying t...Read Moreo work out how to join in and so far spends his time supervising them. It’s never a dull day with Baldwin and we wouldn’t want it any other way!
When I was living in Guelph in 2019, I found this spicy girl at Petsmart. She adapts very well to new surroundings, as long as it’s on her terms. The moment I took her out of the carrier, she smacked me when I tried to pet her, then came to sit in my lap, lol. Even though she doesn’t particul...Read Morearly like change, as long as I’m there she seems to do okay. After Covid hit, I made the difficult decision to move back to be with my family in Arizona. She trekked the whole car ride with me and was surprisingly adventurous, as seen in this photo of her in front of a QT gas station somewhere in the US. We are both doing well in the desert! She loves to sunbathe, and sheds a lot as a result. She loves her trash toys (plastic forks, straws, twist ties), and FOOD. We have to have all food locked up so she doesn’t become a little thief! She’s got the feistiest tortitude I’ve ever seen, especially if you tell her “No”… and we wouldn’t have it any other way. <3
