Occasionally we hear from some of our past residents and/or their new person with all those good stories we love! If you would like your adoption experience to be included on this SUCCESS STORIES page, either send us your story via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or our facebook page TriLakesHumaneSociety. If you would like to include a picture, we love to see those and will post here, too! Please let us know if it's okay to post if there is a family member included.
We will add each new story at the top of this page - when we get to 10 per page then the bottom stories will drop off :) But we're sure that will give lots of people plenty of time to read all the happy stories!
We hope to hear from you all soon!!!
KARMA now known as SPICE loves her new mom and has taken to AGILITY like it was her goal in life! Her new mom says that Spice is the perfect agility competition dog, she's confident, fun-loving, sweet and very, very smart and eager to learn! AND, she gets along with all the other dogs! After just a few hours of coming home, she settled right in like she had been there forever! She loves the lake, is crating like a champ, loves playing ball and can already do "sit", "tunnel" and "dog walk"! She has that intense "Border Collie" stare and focus that is going to make her a major competition champion! P.S. Her full "Show Dog Name" is "Tri-Lakes Sugar N' Spice"!
BOOTS sent us this picture just to let us know that he's "king of the coffee table"! :) and "king of the house", too! :) :) :) He loves to be right in the middle of everything. He's very snuggly and loving, as long as it's his idea of course! He's doing great and so in love with his new family, just as they are so in love with him!
BINDY was adopted by her dad, here with her in the picture, about 3 weeks ago. She and dad took a really good "selfie"! Dad says her name is now BABE and that she quickly leash trained and working on other things. And that she's so smart and has so much potential! Exciting news!!!
RITZ (like in "puttin' on the Ritz") is the most handsome cat, a Maine Coon mix. We heard from his new family and they couldn't be happier that they took Ritz home. He has settled in like it's just the place where he's supposed to be. There were a couple of days, that his family was worried about him - typical cat in new environment, not eating, hiding, etc. - but once he figured out he was "home" and "loved" - all was well. Now, he's just as happy as his new family is :)
SMOKEY & HANNAH sent us this update! Their new persons were on a trip to Southern Missouri from Nebraska, and stopped at our shelter looking for an Irish Wolfhound or a dog similar. Instead they met Smokey & Hannah and fell in love. BTW, they are Catahoula Leopard Dog/German Shepherd Dog mix :) Their first person brought them to the shelter because he was an over-the-road truck driver and felt he couldn't spend enough time with them. Well, that was 6-1/2 years ago and they are about to celebrate their 11th birthdays, and still going strong. They and their "new" :) persons couldn't be happier!
TRUDY sent us this "selfie" and this picture of her and her new BIG Brother! She also sent us a personal note: Dear Tri-Lakes, I just wanted to send you a note and thank you for taking such good care of me. My family is great! My big brother Gorden and I are still trying to figure each other out, but we're getting there. My humans are very nice and I'm getting pretty good at letting them know when I need to go out. I like shoes a lot, but so far I haven't done any serious damage :) I have lots of room to run around and I've been promised we can walk down to the lake once it warms up. Life is good! Thanks again for everything! Love, Trudy
JOJO has a new little boy to call her own. He gave her a bath right after she got home and then they watched t.v. together. She loves her new puppy brother and gets along with the neighbor's cats that sometimes she has to help take care of. JoJo loves her new home and her family loves her!
