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.


    Thank you so much for the beautiful card you sent for Maggie's ( now Fizz) adoptaversary! We have had a wonderful year with her. She was a perfect addition to our family. She is a curious, energetic, playful kitty. She greets everyone at the door and comes running anytime she hears her name with a c...Read Moreute little chirp that we think sounds like " huh?" There has not been a grocery bag or box that she hasn't explored or a surface she hasn't attempted to climb. Even though she loves everyone, she has bonded with my youngest son and chooses him to cuddle with at night. She is a tiny girl but the love, humour and joy she brings to our home is larger than life. Thank you for choosing us as her forever family!


    Star joined our family just over 2 weeks ago. She is a calm and snuggly piggy. Her and our other piggy, Tofu, have bonded nicely and are now enjoying the same space together. Star loves her veggies and is very vocal about letting us know when she thinks it's time for more. She often runs zoomies aro...Read Moreund the cage and enjoys coming out to explore.


    We adopted (Mr.) Chips a little over a year ago. It has been amazing to watch him flourish. Since he was surrendered in March 2022, he has almost doubled his body weight and his hyperthyroidism, chronic skin condition, kidney disease and high blood pressure are all well managed now. Since his teeth ...Read Morewere in such bad shape, the humane society's vet removed most of them before we adopted him. Today, he is a very happy guy, with no pain, a glossy coat and even a little tummy. He needs daily medication, but takes them all really well. He is very happy here. He has made friends with his two new sisters, but mostly wants to spend as much time as possible with his humans. During the day, he lies next to the keyboard (often with his chin on our hand) when we’re working from home, lies on our chest while we’re watching tv and snuggles with us all night. He is the most gentle and loving cat imaginable. We’re so grateful to the Guelph Humane Society and his foster home for his care, including many vet visits, after his surrender and to the Animal Hospital of Cambridge, especially Dr. Hayden Marshall, who has been next to us every step of the way to make sure he is living his absolute best life.


    I adopted Serenity in June. She is now 5 months old and is doing so well. She is walking on a leash and harness and has been since I got her when she was 2 months old. She loves to play with her toys by herself and with me. She likes people when I bring her to the pet store and vet she loves saying...Read More hi to people. She loves her stroller very much.

    Goose (formerly Crinkle)

    Hi GHS! I thought I’d give you a little update of Goose (formerly Crinkle) who was adopted in February. She is the best buddy anyone could ask for! She adores her moms and her sister, Juniper (another GHS alum). She’s friendly with everyone she meets and has turned many of our friends into cat ...Read Morepeople. She spends most of her time playing with her sister and “helping” her moms with whatever we’re doing like a little shadow. She’s great in the car and really enjoys visiting her grandparents’ cottage. Her purple monster toy from foster care is still a favourite which she brings all around the house with her. Goosie has been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) which is being managed with low dose steroids, prescription diet, and probiotics. She will require special care for the rest of her life but her vets feel that as long as she continues to respond to treatment, she can have a good quality of life and normal lifespan.


    We adopted Libby (previously Ariel) almost 3 years ago and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing she. She fit in so well with our other furbabies, Parker (cat) and Paxton (110 lbs dog) was like she was meant for us. She is a quiet 9 year old Tortie/Ragdoll who loves to snuggle right up to you...Read More. When it’s bedtime she needs to lay between myself and my husband on the bed as if to make sure we fall asleep before heading to her favourite chair or couch for the night. She is just so incredible and I’m glad we happen to be at Ren’s while she was there. It’s like she was to be there


    We adopted Snickers from the Guelph Humane Society around this time one year ago and now we can't imagine life without her! When we first adopted her we was fairly shy; however, over the past year, she has really come out of her shell and is much more social and affectionate. Her latest interest has...Read More been going outside with us on our patio (on a leash of course) and watching the birds fly by. Exploring a new environment in the warmer weather with her has also been exciting for us because it really shows how comfortable she is in our care and reminds us of the trust we have built with her over time. We are excited for many more memories that we will create with Snickers and are so glad she found her forever home with us.

    Bubbles (previously Slinky)

    I adopted Bubbles in January after he was hit by a car. He instantly became comfortable in his new home and loves when the house is busy with lots of guests and loud music. He is truly the life of the party. Bubbles' favourite activity is going on leashed walks when the sun is out, although he is no...Read Moret a fan of other cats or dogs.


    Molly was adopted 3 years ago and continues to be awesome! She is a joy to have around and is easily the happiest and friendliest dog on the planet. Her tail never stops wagging, she is excited to meet everyone (even the vet!) and pulls hard on the leash to try and say hello to all of the people tha...Read Moret we go past on our walks. And when we aren't out exploring the neighbourhood she does what dogs do best....lay around and do nothing! Looking forward to enjoying her company for many years to come!

    Eddie, Sasha, Darcy, Vern

    We have FOUR happy tails around here that we wanted to share, starting with Eddie (the cat with the white fluffy tummy) who we adopted back in April of 2003 - yes, you read that right: we've been lucky enough to have Eddie living with us for almost 20 years! Sisters Sasha (the torti) and Darcy (the ...Read Morehouse panther) are, to us, the new kitties - they've only lived with us about 6 years :-) Vern (the beagle) is our most recent addition and he came to us about 4 years ago. Our little furry family has been through a lot in the last year or so, with all of our animals dealing with significant and chronic health issues, but everyone is hanging in and adventuring as we and they can.

    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
