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.
Calliope was a very scared cat when I got her from the humane society. She liked to find a closed space and sit there for her whole day. She's still a little tentative, but has started waking me up in the morning for food and crawling onto my lap for belly rubs! She's now the most loved member of th...Read Moree household and a spoiled princess!
I brought Marco home just over a month ago, and it has been the best decision I've ever made. He is my best friend and a perfect cuddle buddy. He has quite the personality and loves to play with his laser pointer. He loves belly rubs and watches TV while sleeping right next to me every night. We bon...Read Moreded so quickly, I feel like we both needed each other at difficult times in our lives, and I hope this old boy is enjoying his "retirement home". Love you lots, Marco!
We got Toby a older big fella from GHS just over 3 years ago. He had obviously been through a lot and it took some time to gain his trust but today he is my moms loyal and steadfast companion. He is adored by all who get to see his big smile and experience his sweet, loving nature. Since moving to h...Read Moreis new home the big man has been on so many adventures! Spending time at university, camping trips, conservation centres and even a cross Canada and USA road trip! Toby brightens up our lives every day and we are so thankful to be his forever home!
I found Magnus at the Guelph Humane Society in August of 2019. He didn’t have any background information on him because he came in as a stray. And they guessed him to be around 1-2. I took him home 3 days later. He was bright and well mannered from the start. Always looking for a game of tag and r...Read Moreeady for a cuddle. He loves his belly rubs and chin scratches. He’s a vocal guy that has great stories if ya listen. He was the missing part of my home. My dad has fallen in love with him as well. The day I first saw him he bummed noses with mine. I knew at that moment he was coming home with me. He’s my best friend.
When we first brought Louie home he was recovering from an injury. He had begun to have lumps appear in his mouth and had very sore paws. We worked very closely with the GHS to finally diagnose his with eosinophilic granuloma, and he has been on medication since then. We also found out that he has w...Read Moreeaker bones, and has had to have both of his femoral heads from his hind legs removed. But he is fully recovered from the surgeries and is a completely normal cat (as far as cats go). He just bunny hops up the stairs now. He loves our other cat and he would wrestle and play with him all day if we let him, but we still have to be careful to make sure he doesn’t break anything else. He also loves to sit outside, lay in the sun, and watch all the birds fly past. We love Louie to pieces and are so grateful for how helpful and supportive the GHS was! On May 21st we celebrated his 3rd gotcha day.
We brought Penelope home from the ghs about 4 months ago and have fallen in love with her. She is so sweet and loves to hop around and have free roam of the room. She loves to hop over and go right into your feet when she knows that it’s time for her food or a treat. As soon as she gets it, she ho...Read Moreps right away in case you want to take it from her! Thank you GHS for matching us with Penelope, we are so happy to have her as part of our family :)
We brought Harold home in February 2020 after what felt like an instant connection with him when we visited him during an adoption event at the PetSmart. We were told that he's a former lab cat who was part of nutrition trials, so we knew that transitioning him into a home environment could be slow....Read More We were prepared for him to be a bit of a "scaredy-cat", and that was ok with us. But he's been so brave, and he's taken on exploring our home (slowly) like a champ! He's very patient with our toddler's loving and has been loving him back more and more. He and our dog have been getting used to each other too and we hope they'll be good friends eventually. He's the absolute best work-from-home office mate and loves to make at least one appearance on every video chat. He loves getting attention and it's been such a privilege to watch him open up and get comfortable as part of our family. Thank you Guelph Humane Society for giving us the opportunity to add this sweet boy to our family!
We brought Lily home with us in September 2019. She required specific food for allergies as she was over grooming in the shelter. Lily is doing great in her new home. She loves her roommate (a bernese mountain dog) and being spoiled by 4 little girls who love to brush her and carry her around. She l...Read Moreoves going into their rooms at bedtime for some extra snuggles.
We are coming up on one year since we brought our boy Cooper home on April 17th, 2019. Cooper came into GHS as a stray in March 2019 when he was found roaming about a Guelph neighbourhood. When he arrived in GHS’ care, it was discovered that he had a bad ear infection and was ridden with ear mites...Read More. With lots of love and care, these issues were resolved, but due to the pain these issues caused him from for an unknown amount of time, this resulted in him dropping his right ear when it became too painful to hold upright and it remains down to this day, giving him a very unique look! Now he lives happily as a free roam bunny in his forever home where he is treated like a king and can enjoy the finer things in life, such as the lake views at Grandma & Grandpa's house. He loves to jump in the bed each morning for cuddles with mom, and enjoys doing all the things humans do - sitting at the kitchen table, relaxing on the couch and even from time to time helps take care of business in the office. After 9 and a half long months of bonding, he also now gets to spend every day playing and snuggling with his sister Cadbury. Despite his sometimes dopey demeanour, he is a very smart bunny and has even learned a few tricks - paw and high five - and comes running when called. He’s brought so much love and laughter into our lives with his crazy antics and we look forward to celebrating the day our little family became whole on April 17th.
Gamora (who is now known as Noodle in her fur-ever home since she’s so bendy!) was adopted in March 2020 after being part of a large-scale surrender in January 2020. She has since settled in perfectly with her new family (including her brother Earl) and loves to run around, squeak at her Mom and D...Read Moread and play with every twist-tie she can find! She’s super sweet and cuddly and spends her nights under the covers in her parents’ bed. Thank you to the GHS for helping us find the perfect addition to our family!
Phoenix (Clementine) came in as a stray, and as a volunteer I first met her when I drove her to see the vet. She was so cute and fluffy! So a few days later I "volun-failed" and she moved into her new home; where she promptly ran into the closet and hid under the comforter. To this day I think she r...Read Moreemembers how hard life as a stray was as she still won't go anywhere near the door! She's not much for snuggles, but is very independent and just keeps to herself, dividing her time between guarding the stairs and wondering why her food bowl is empty, lol. On March 22, we celebrated our first year together, and we're both looking forward to many more!
Back in September of 2019 we adopted lovely Dalton by chance. We were told he was a very affectionate bunny who loved his greens and was previously raised a free roam bunny by a very loving person. Since adopting him we've bonded him to an existing female rabbit in our home, Mila, to whom he loves ...Read Moredearly. He has remained a free roaming rabbit and now spends his days snuggled up to Mila, running around happily, and demanding pets from those who look at him. We love him to bits and we're so glad he and Mila have become so close these last 6 months. March is his birth month and he's officially a year old now, we can't wait to celebrate many more birthday with him.
