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.
A month ago we decided to take a drive to the Guelph Humane Society after seeing Michael, an all black kitten on the website. Fell absolutely in love with him. My 4 year old son who is autistic completely adores him. Plays with little Mikey all the time. Mikey only took a couple days to adjust to an...Read Moreother cat and dog in the house. Now they are all bestfriends, We have caught Mikey right up in the middle of the christmas tree. Hard to get mad at his adorable face. He weighs 4.5 lbs, just over 5 months. ( He loves food!). He’s been a great addition to our family and has even got my 10 year old Mogley playing now. He loves sleeping on your chest and pawing at your face. We decided to keep his name of Michael, but just shorten it to Mikey. He’s a happy little guy!
I met Ariel two years ago, when a friend of mine was fostering her and her three brothers (Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle). I decided if I could get a cat, I'd get "the fluffy one." A couple months later she was mine. She's still very much a kitten, and enjoys chasing anything and everything, and ...Read Morewatching the world go by from the window. She loves snuggles and attention, and won't hesitate to drool all over you when she's happy. She had been having some issues with coronavirus when she came to GHS, but I'm pleased to say she is now a happy, healthy cat and hasn't had any recurring health issues from the virus. She's the sweetest, goofiest little kitty. Although she definitely gets into her fair share of mischief, we're so happy to call her part of our family, and one of our "fur babies."
We adopted Sylvester in August 2018, and he's like a brand new cat in his new home! He was found in very rough shape when he was brought into the humane society. Since being adopted, his fur has all grown back, hes learned to love and be loved, and show us affection. Hes always been a fairly timid k...Read Moreitty, and he still is some days. When we brought him home, it took a few months to really gain his trust. He doesnt like being picked up, and he wasnt too crazy about being touched much at all, other than a good brushing and a few pets. But now he loves to jump up and snuggle in bed, or on the couch! And he just cant get enough pets and love. We are so thankful that we met our Sylvester and got to give him a new start at life.
We adopted Calvin almost a year ago as a kitten. His brother Hobbes took to him right away and now they’re buddies. Mornings are for pouncing and pummelling. Afternoons for napping. We rescued Hobbes from our barn seven years ago when his mom ran away. Hobbes is the big guy. Calvin is taller but m...Read Moreuch slimmer!
I have always been a crazy dog mom who was never even remotely compelled to adopting a cat... that was until I fell in love with this grumpy faced diabetic senior who had me visiting GHS daily... I was new to feline diabetes & the cat mom life, but Paisley and I are super happy with the addition...Read More of his cat brother. After only 6 short weeks and extreme consistency, we are happy to report Max is on his way towards Diabetic remission (fingers crossed & knock on wood). Permanent judgy face aside, he is such a love & it has been amazing to watch his personality develop as he gets more comfortable with us. ❤️ We love Maximus!
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!
