Bosco

Bosco

June 10, 2021

We are so happy to have adopted Bosco (formerly Inspector) into our new family!

We picked him up from Toronto Humane Society in April 2021. It took a couple weeks for him to settle into our home, but every day he grows steadily more comfortable.

Bosco is such an interesting character with the most hilarious quirks. He enjoys napping upside down and is terribly afraid of open doors, sewers, and vacuums.

He is the fastest dog at the dog park and has become the talk of the town with his incredibly social personality and striking brindle coat. He keeps us on our toes, and we couldn’t be happier to have him around!

I just wanted to thank Toronto Humane Society for helping me bring Kaz (formerly Shaquille) into my home.

He has been doing great and is having a lot of fun playing with all of his toys and exploring his new home. Thank you!


Omelette

We recently adopted Omelette from Toronto Humane Society in January, and Flick (now Oggi) from you 5 years ago. The 2 have become the best of friends and we can’t imagine life without them.

Omelette is such a snuggly and fun boy who has really come out of his shell over these past few months.

Thank you so much for introducing us to our special little boys. We can’t wait to reach out again when it’s time for kitty number 3!

It’s been a week since we adopted Tyler and he is doing great! He fits in so perfectly, it’s like he has been a part of the family forever!

I really wanted to thank Toula, and the rest of the team at Toronto Humane Society, for finding us the perfect dog! Last December we adopted Bubbles (our cat) and now we have Tyler. Our family is complete!

Thanks for all of the amazing work you do.


Maro

Maro

May 13, 2021

I found Maro (formerly Pebbles) in 2007 and brought her to Toronto Humane Society. I decided to adopt her.

I was a college student, and I went back to my home country in Japan with her in 2008.

Until she passed away on April 21st 2021 from kidney failure, we were always together. We love each other so much. We spent a lot of great times together.

I just want to say thank you for the opportunity to welcome her to my life. She was really nice and cute, and I don’t think I’ll ever meet another great cat like her – she was one of a kind.


Ivy

Ivy

May 12, 2021

I adopted Ivy nearly 2 years ago when she was approximately 6 years old.

When I went to see her, she hid at the very back of her little cat house and refused to emerge despite the proffered treats. I learned from staff that she had been abandoned and had some problems with anxiety leading to involuntary urination and defecation.

Even after I took her home, I was terrified that she wouldn’t be happy living with me. Fast forward to now, and she and I are true partners in crime. Every day she helps me learn to be a little bit braver.

I’m so grateful to all the staff at Toronto Humane Society who sent me home with all the information that I needed to look after Ivy and took such good care of Ivy before she and I could meet her.


Jackson

Jackson

May 11, 2021

I recently adopted an orange tabby named Jackson from Toronto Humane Society and he has become such a wonderful addition to my family! He warmed up so quickly within the first two days, and now all he wants are pets and cuddles.

At night he likes to sleep on top of my pillows above my head or in my neck – it is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. He also really likes to watch cartoons in his cat bed!

He is such a sweet cat and I absolutely love him to pieces!


Harvey

Harvey

May 04, 2021

I adopted Harvey from Toronto Humane Society on March 21, 2015. I had been looking for a kitten (which he was not) but when I met Harvey it was love at first sight. When I brought him home, he had a cold, was healing from a leg fracture, and is FIV+.

When he came home with me, he was instantly the centre of mine and my roommates’ worlds. Since then, he and I have lived in four different places and even moved cities together! My current roommate caters to his every whim, and as I write this Harvey is sitting on my lap.

He is the cuddliest, funniest, weirdest cat I’ve ever met. I even got a tattoo of him! I am so glad I didn’t let his FIV+ situation prevent me from bringing him home. Thank you, Toronto Humane Society, for keeping him safe until I brought him home. He makes my life beautiful.


Keltie

Keltie

Thank you to all of the hard working folks at Toronto Humane Society - not just for our new dog, but for all animals that are in need.

Keltie is a beautiful Alaskan Husky. She is turning into a more confident dog every day. Here she is doing our Rail-Trail therapy, as we call it


Phoebe

Phoebe

April 29, 2021

We adopted Phoebe (formerly Cookie) just over 3 weeks ago and she is a dream dog! She is incredible with our 3 kids, loves her walks, is fully house trained, and absolutely loves the outdoors!

She loves squeaky toys and has an entire toy bin full of them. She likes to wake us up in the morning by jumping on the bed and giving us kisses.

She fit in with our family from the moment we met her, and we are incredibly happy she is part of our family. Phoebe is wonderful and quirky, and we all love her so much!
