Hey again THS crew!

I adopted “Abianne” (Now Harley) on March 26th, 2014 and she has quickly become the best part of my day! After a few days of hiding and skulking around in shadows, Harley quickly opened up to the idea of a big house, two little ladies, and a kitty to run free! Harley was named as such for two reasons, she is a comedic jester looking for an audience like a “Harlequin”, and she rockets around the house like a ” Harley-Davidson” motorcycle, chasing bugs and making toys out of any floor bound object, purring like an engine and begging to be pet and played with. A complete snuggle bug when lower-energy (the end of my bed is a common nap spot) and a great morning companion always running and meowing to find me when she hears I’m awake. Harley is a real gift to our household, thanks again!

It has been a month since we have adopted Chewy from your shelter and he is doing very well. He’s a very playful and well behaved dog and is socializing very well with both people and other dogs. Thank you again for allowing us to adopt such a wonderful dog

May the Fourth be with you,
Maria, Leslie, Jodie, and Linda

Dear THS,

It’s been one week since I brought home Phoebe, formerly Sally. She is a beautiful medium haired black and white petite 4 year old cat. She picked me as I moved past her cage. She jumped up on her hind legs and was meowing at me. The minute a volunteer placed her in my lap she settled in and purred. It was love at first sight.

I was told she was surrendered due to serious aggression and for attacking her people. I had a hard time believing this sweet little purring cat could live up to that tough rep, but in the event she did I was ready to love her unconditionally.

Our first night Phoebe found a nice little corner that she claimed as her own. I set her up with a bed, the towel from the shelter, and a slew of toys and some yummy treats. 4 hours later, Phoebe was on the arm of the sofa purring happily at my head. Since then, if I’m home, Phoebe is beside me. She spends all night, every night, on the bed with me. Often choosing to use a pillow for her head. She has quickly obtained a large collection of pink and purple toys, a good sized cat tree, a delux litter box with a set of stairs into it, and a cat bed for every room in the house. My gentle dog has already convinced her that they should be buddies and since day one they have both had full roam together. One quick hiss and my dog is backing up and respecting Phoebe and her boundaries.

I couldn’t be happier with my wonderful little cat. As I write this she is napping happily beside me and purring whenever I reach over to stroke her sweet little cheeks.
