Happy Tails

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.

    Kingo (now Percy)

    I adopted Kingo, now named Percy, last May. Despite all that he had been through in being abandoned in his carrier in the wet ditch, he is a super friendly and trusting cat. He healed from his injuries and adjusted really quickly: soon showed his very playful and energetic personality. He loves to c...Read Moreuddle close in the mornings and evenings, and is always up for a game of fetch. I'm very grateful to the person who rescued him, and for the Humane Society for bringing us together. _____ NOTE: I have more pictures, I just could only attach one. I can send more if needed. Thanks!


    I adopted blazer 10 years ago. He is now the official dog of hilton hotels. I bring him to work to hilton meadowvale each day and he is our lobby ambassador. He is famous on our Instagram page and all the guests know him and live him. He has been the lobby ambassador for about 7 years now. He goes t...Read Moreo events at big hilton meetings and has his own booth. He gets more good comments than all the other employees. He has his own bed and bowl and house in the lobby. He works from7 to 3 each day and guests are always so excited to see him


    Bruce (AKA: "Brucey-Bear", "Brucey-Baby") is an 11 years-young Shih-Poo with cataracts and 3 teeth! Bruce was a Foster to Adopt with his dental-pending. Bruce came into my world April 1, 2021, and this was no "April Fool's" joke! Bruce is a Senior pup who was seen as shy, timid, and even stand-offis...Read Moreh. This is the complete opposite of what I got! For me and Bruce, it was love at first sight and smell. Bruce is the happiest, most loving, the sweetest, and cheekiest pup I have ever met. Bruce loves to snuggle and run and play with his cat sister Raven; loves to go for walks; and loves the attention from other dogs and people at the dog park! Me and Bruce discovered that Bruce LOVES car rides! Bruce loves to catch the breeze out of the car window. Sometimes we even like to play tug-of-war with an old sock, despite Bruce only having 3 teeth! Bruce also loves the Autumn season and loves to run around in the pile of leaves. Bruce will let me know when he wants a "treat" by doing his "twirls"! Bruce puts a smile on my face, 24/7. I am incredibly lucky and forever grateful to have adopted the sweetest baby-old-man. Thank you to the Guelph Humane Society for giving me and Bruce the best gift ever--each other!

    Brunwick (Tequila), Eugene (Star), Ziggy (Blueberry)

    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.

    Cody, now Vinny

    “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 (previously Joy)

    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.

    Cashew (now Oliver)

    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 (formerly Lena)

    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!
