HAPPILY EVER AFTER
 
Droopy finally found his forever home. We get many updates on him, and his family sends us a lot of pictures telling us how much they love Droopy!!
 
 
Shady was with us for over 2 years. One very special day, a couple just happened to be visiting from Georgia, and passed by our shelter. One thing led to another, and long story short, Shady became a Georgia Peach! She has a wonderful home, where she has tea parties and wears a cowboy hat. Congrats Shady, you deserve this!
 
 
 
Fionna was adopted by one of our volunteers family members, she also was with us for a very long time, and now has a wonderful, happy home with her brother, Gannon. Gannon was also here, and they were reunited together at their new home!
 
 
                                          ___________________________________________________________________
We are pleased to let everyone know that Rosie has been placed in a forever
home.  
 
Three of Frannies puppies have also been placed in new homes.
 
More great news,  Darla has been placed a new loving home.  We  are so happy
for her to get the loving home she has been wanting and wishing for.   
 

So often we forget that there are happy endings.  We are so obsessed with the pain that we see and the sad stories that we hear, that we forget that our adopted pets do go to loving homes.  So here are a few of these success stories, with many more to come, where pets do live happily ever after.



Goldie came to the shelter from a neglected situation.  We all knew right away that she was special.  She definitely had her own style and personality.  She stayed at the shelter quite a while until one of the shelter volunteers opened their home to her.
Here I am at the shelter, scared, confused and just wanting loved.

Here I am in my new loving and forever home.  I get all the love and snuggling a cat could ask for!


  
I adopted Budie from your shelter in February 2003.  He was under the care of the late Dr. Claugus.  He is an exceptionally loving and gentle black lab and gets along just fine on his three legs.  He loves all people.  I have two large fenced in areas for him to romp and play, but he really wants to stay with me and loves to be petted and hugged 24/7.  Thank you for rescuing him and I'm so lucky and proud to be his caretaker.  God was so good to me in bringing this beautiful animal into my life.
Hugs to all the animals in your care.
Sincerely,
Winifred Palkovic and Budie

  

Bailey. 

Bailey was surrendered to us in August 2003.  He was matted so badly that he had to be shaved and had a horrible ear infection that had bubbled out & burned his neck.  After being adopted by the Wykoff's he is once again a happy & beautiful cocker spaniel.

Chase. 

Chase was turned into Monroe County's Dog Pound in May 2003.  He was a little tough guy that had a big attitude in a little body, a typical Jack Russell.  The Humane Society removed him from the pound to find him a good home.  After one unsucessful placement his foster family decided he had come home to stay.  Chase's favorite spot after a long day is a lap or a chest or whatever, as long as he is with you.

From an adoptive family:

 Just a short note to tell you how well Jax is doing.  It has been a quick month since we adopted Jax.  He just turned 1 year old on March 14th.  He has totally accepted our home and our love!  We are also pleased that Jax and Annie (our other Chihuahua) are getting along so well.  They play all the time and genuinely seem to  love each other.  We addopted Annie a year ago this past January from the Medina County SPCA and wanted to add another Chihuaha to our family.  As it turns out, Jax was the perfect choice.  Now Jax has a new home, a new playmate, and a new place in our hearts!  Yes, there are angels among us, we just believe they are in the form of two beautiful, spirited, loving Chihuahuas!  Thank you to Petfinder and the Humane Society of Monroe County. 

P.S.  To anyone out there who is looking for an addition to their family, may we say, PLEASE, PLEASE, make these shelter animals your first consideration.   Even if you don't find what you want at first, keep going back.  We guarantee you will find the pet that was meant for you.  We certainly did!

Sincerely,

Mike, Jodie, Annie and Jax Garst

This is Bo.
What can we say about him that has not already been said. He came to the humane society badly injured and starving and still just wanted to be loved.  We are happy for Bo as he now has a loving family to take care of him.  Congrats Bo. 

  
FORD 

THIS LETTER WAS RECEIVED FROM AN ADOPTIVE FAMILY THAT ADOPTED A BOXER FROM US THAT WAS VERY, VERY MALNOURISHED AND MISTREATED.  HE HAS NOW BEEN IN THEIR FAMILY FOR ABOUT 8 MONTHS NOW.......

SORRY BEING SO LONG IN GETTING BACK TO YOU ABOUT FORD BUT IT’S BEEN A HECTIC SUMMER. HE IS DOING GREAT!! CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT A SWEETHEART HE IS. HE JUST GETS BETTER EVERY DAY. I THINK HE KNOWS HE HAS A HOME FOR GOOD AND IS FEELING MORE COMFORTABLE. FORD HAS SUCH A GREAT PERSONALITY AND GETS ALONG SO WELL WITH OUR MALE BOXER, RUDY. I WORRIED AT FIRST ABOUT TWO MALES BUT COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR TWO DOGS TO GET ALONG ANY BETTER. FORD IS NOW STARTING TO PLAY MORE. I THINK AT FIRST HE DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO OR WASN’T ALLOWED TO PLAY. THE FIRST TIME HE BARKED IT SHOCKED HIM AND ALSO SHOCKED ME SINCE HE DIDN’T BARK FOR THE FIRST FEW WEEKS. HE LOOKED AT ME LIKE HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO GET IN TROUBLE. THE ONLY THING I DID WAS SAY YEAH FORD, YOU CAN BARK!! HE LOVES GOING OUT TO OUR CABIN IN THE COUNTRY WITH US AND RUNS AND PLAYS AND THEN GOES AND LAYS ON THE CABIN PORCH WITH RUDY AND TAKES IT EASY. HE NOW KNOWS HE IS ALLOWED ON OUR FURNITURE. WHEN WE FIRST GOT HIM WE LIFTED HIM ONTO THE SOFA AND HE LOOKED SCARED TO DEATH. HE JUST WASN’T SURE. NOW HE HAS A CHAIR HE HAS CLAIMED AS HIS OWN. HE ALSO COMES TO OUR BUSINESS EVERYDAY WITH US. FROM DAY ONE HE WAS WELL MANNERED AND ALWAYS GOOD WITH EVERYONE THAT COMES IN. ANOTHER BIT OF GOOD NEWS: HE NOW WEIGHS 79LBS. QUITE A DIFFERENCE FROM 42LBS WHEN HE WAS RESCUED. HE LOOKS GREAT. HOW ANYONE COULD HAVE MISUSED SUCH A PUREHEART I WILL NEVER KNOW. I THINK ABOUT THAT EVERYDAY. HE WILL NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BEING MISUSED OR HUNGER FOR FOOD OR THIRST FOR WATER EVERY AGAIN IN HIS LIFE AND THAT MAKES ME FEEL SO GOOD TO THINK THAT HE NOW KNOWS THAT. WE LOVE HIM DEARLY AND ARE SO THANKFUL EVERYDAY THAT HE IS WITH US. THANK YOU.
