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.
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!
Chloe was adopted in 2017 by our family after being surrendered by her previous owners. From what we gathered, she did not do well with children and other animals. We have two other dogs as well as Chloe, and we've had little to no issues with their interactions. She quickly became the most snuggly,...Read More loving, and affectionate dog we have. She always wants to cuddle. She's incredibly smart and will watch TV with our family, waiting for the commercials she likes (and she knows them by sound and sight very well). Chloe is such a love bug that she will happily snuggle into anyone at anytime. Couldn't imagine her not being apart of our family!
Mara arrived at the Guelph Humane Society in August of 2018 and it was love at first sight. I knew I had to take her home! When Mara was found she was very small and skinny but since she has been adopted she has grown about 2 feet! Mara loves to explore blankets and slither in the grass outside (alw...Read Moreays when its warm and with supervision)! She has such a lovely and sweet personality, I am so thankful to the GHS for rescuing her!
Over 11 years ago I adopted Jersey from the Guelph Humane Society. She’s almost 13 now and has been the very best companion. Thank you for all you do!
I adopted Sasha on June 4, 2019. She has really settled in nicely and is such a great dog! She is loving our bike rides in her doggy trailer, days by the pool, and of course our walks with lots of sniffing time. As long as it isn’t raining, Sasha hates the rain! It only took a few weeks to figur...Read Moree out the pee pads and now she is bang on with them, no problems at all. It is amazing what a little patience and time will do, she is just so smart! The cats and parrot all get along well with her, and she is getting used to to the bunny too. I just love her to pieces. Thank you for helping her!
I adopted her wanting a friend for my cat after my sister moved and therefore her cat did too. I work next to pet smart and I went in on a break. I saw a cat in the corner with a cone on, so I couldn’t see her face. After work that day, I was looking on different rescue websites and I saw the ad ...Read Morefor Echo. Then it said that she was located at Petsmart and I went there too meet her and filled out an application the same day. I brought her home a week later on June 11 and she is a confident purrfect cat. My other cat likes her from a distance but is growing on the idea of her. My dog loves Echo so much. I am forever grateful to the Guelph Humane Society for showing me a cat who makes my life and my family’s life so great. - Claire
