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.
Only a month ago, my partner and I welcomed a very handsome young boy to our home. Goose (formally Treble when he arrived at the GHS) was just a baby when we saw him. We went to Petsmart without the intention of getting a pet, but it was love at first site. He obviously agreed, because when we tried...Read More to put him back in his crate with his brother, he screamed at us until we picked him up again. He was instantly comfortable when we brought him home and quickly made himself comfortable. The first few weeks were tough, because Goose had been fighting a viral infection that affected his upper respiratory tract. Even with constant care and cleaning, it got out of hand and he had his first vet visit. He is very well now, and almost through all of his medication! The impact he has had on my partner and I has been incredible. We both suffer from mental illness and really struggled in our tiny apartment with no other pets. Goose has been such a calming, loving, and refocusing presence in our lives since we brought him home. He sticks with us when we are having tough days and purrs as loud as he can to cheer us up. We are both so grateful to have him in our home, and we hope we can continue to keep him happy & healthy. Thank you GHS for adding to our family and trusting us to love Goosey Boy!
Cooper was found as a wee pup (Timbit) in a Tim Hortons parking lot and had a wonderful stay with an amazing foster family. He’s been with us for 6 weeks and was the missing piece of our family. He’s snuggly, loving and incredibly sweet, but also stubborn and independent - a terrier to his bones...Read More! Thank you GHS!!
Krupa came into our life September 2018. He is the funniest, weirdest, and most handsome old guy I have ever met. He makes both of us so happy and we can't imagine not having him.
We popped in on a whim one afternoon and the rest is history. Rotini came home to her furever family in December '11 and she has ruled from her fave 'elevated throne' since. A true Tortie, she accepts pets only when she asks for them, she doesn't want to have to remind you more than once that ...Read Moreshe is waiting to be fed, she has forgiven us for bringing two additional furbabies into the her home...we think, and, she, and she alone will be treated as the Queen. She sleeps only with her Dad, which means he is gifted the mice, if she catches them. She has been a sweet & sassy addition to our family.
Lily was surrendered to the GHS but quickly found her forever home with her parents Maddy and Brett. She is love personified and has the goofiest personality ever. Maddy’s uncle, Tom, gave Lily the middle name Darling and she is living up to it every day. Lily and her parents are forever grateful ...Read Moreto the GHS for this match made in heaven.
Willy came to GHS weighing only 25lbs at 2.5 years old. He had two wounds on his hind leg and two cherry eyes. He was treated while at the shelter and gained a bit of weight. When we took him home in September 2013 he was up to 37lbs. Now he lives a life of luxury. A full belly every day, lots of co...Read Moremfy blankets to choose from and lots of fur siblings to play with. He’s a laid back old guy and makes our zoo complete!
This sweet dilute tortoiseshell was named Fritter when I adopted her from GHS in 2013. She had been found at 4weeks old in a Tim Horton's parking lot and fostered by a GHS staff member until old enough to be adopted. Now she's a happy, healthy, indoor cat living the good life with my husband & I...Read More and our 12year-old dog...she even has her own chair!
Indie (formally Michelle) and Ru (formally Rupaul) were transferred from North Bay to Guelph Humane Society when they were a couple weeks old with a cold and a couple health issues. After moving to a foster home with a veterinarian (who just so happens to be my sister) for a little extra TLC, it too...Read Morek one visit to be love at first site. These sisters love lounging in their window hammock and chasing ants in the kitchen. They can also hear the crack of a wet food can from anywhere in the house and come running!
When we met “Brian” at the GHS, he was a crazy fluff ball off hair...after a rough life for this little guy, we are so excited to finally show him the love this ham deserves! He loves to curl up into a ball in my daughters dresses, hide under her pillows, and has even started to perk up when he ...Read Morehears her voice. Snowflake ❄️ is the perfect addition to our family, and we are so blessed to have him...poop and all!
Annie was a stray beagle that the Guelph Humane Society found. We saw her and we immediately adopted her. Now she is a cute and food motivated beagle, who lets the whole neighbourhood know she is on a walk with loud screeches of excitement! Annie is loving and always wakes you up for her walks. Than...Read Morek you GHS!
Just wanted to give you an update on Koda! We are absolutely in love 🥰 Koda has adjusted amazingly with absolutely no issues. It’s like he has been here all his life. Thank you to the Guelph Humane Society... a match made in heaven
I volunteer in the cat room at GHS during the school year, one day while I was there, this big orange cat let out the tiniest squeak of a meow I've ever heard- it sounded like he was trying to get my attention but didn't want to be rude. I opened his cage to pet him and he crawled right into my arms...Read More instead..the rest is history! Pol is one of the sweetest, cuddliest cats I've ever met and I'm so glad to have such a cool guy to hang out with. Thank you GHS!
