​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, send us your story via email at pets4u@centurylink.net.  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!!!


Beth Johnson wrote on our Facebook page - Just an update on Farley (Harley)....he’s so smart and completely house broke by ringing a bell when he needs out. He has learned to sit and shake on command. He loves his treats and evening walks. He also loves to wake up his human sisters early in the mornings.

Melissa Tomovick wrote on our Facebook page.  Here is a recent picture of Buck! He weighed 30 lbs at his visit at the vet in March, so I would assume he weighs close to 40 by now! He can be an onory boy at times lol but he is the best dog we have ever had! He is our baby boy! He is VERY spoiled!

Hi Allan and all the the workers at Tri-Lakes,

We are so happy to have LuLu with us. She is super sweet, smart and listens very well.

The best part is that she now does her business outside! YAY!

You provide a great service to the community.

Thank you all.

Just wanted to let you know that Rosie is doing great in her new home. I just adopted her on April 14th, so it hasn't even been a week yet.  It is just she and I at home, but she has met some neighbors and family, as well as Apollo (Tony Stark), the dog my son adopted the day after he came with me to adopt Rosie. 

Rosie is well on her way to being spoiled rotten, and she is very good company to me. We have been taking lots of walks and lots of naps. She is so loving and sweet!

Wanted to send word of the babies cecil and sam and how they are doing. It didn't take any time for them to worm their way into our hearts. Samalam has assumed the role of keeping the boys in line and is an absolute princess. They both seem to always find each other when it's time for bed, snuggling in right next to each other. They both like their brother booboo and we love it when they all chase each other about like a herd of elephants. 

We fell on hard times and are stuck and have had to be full time rv residents. We don't know what we would have done without our babies and love them very much. I have begun to change the bus around to suit our babies, haven't finished the race track but they seem to like it. 

Would like to thank you so much for letting us have our babies and will send updated pictures on the kitty rv.

Hi! We just wanted to give you an update on a dog we got from you the day after Christmas! His name was Bronson, so you know which dog we're talking about. We named him Solomon and he is AMAZING! He fit into our family immediately and even adjusted to our dog Treasure like they had been friends their whole life! He has such a sweet personality and loves our kids and us. He curls up with my daughter to watch TV sometimes and loves car rides. He and Treasure are inseparable and we couldn't be happier! I'm attaching a few pictures of him playing in our yard and of him & Treasure in their igloo. They each have their own house, but they choose to cuddle together in the same house! Thank you for connecting us to such a sweet dog that we now consider part of our family.

Well she is the best indoor cat we have ever had and is so loveable. Thank you for letting her be apart of our family :-)

He has adapted quite well, his standards are he needs a spot on the couch. He loves his treats and getting belly rubs. A couple of weeks ago, we removed two tumors and has fully recovered. He shares our home with two dogs and several cats, which our rescue kittens like to sleep on or next to him. We can’t thank you enough for all that you do and we encourage anyone to adopt a senior, dog or cat.

Alistor is settling in beautifully and made fast friends with our kitten, Ronald Weasley. They love to play together and they sleep snuggled up on our bed every night. He is getting more and more comfortable and is as curious as ever. Thank you for letting this sweet boy be a part of our family!
