Coco

Coco

We just want to introduce our beloved Coco (previously Sapphire) to you. We adopted her at Paws in the Park event this August. She adjusted to a life in a house very quickly and without any problems despite the fact that she never lived with people for more than a couple of days. She did not know the sound of a fridge opening or what a dog is supposed to do when their human comes home. Well, now she knows and it did not take her long to figure it out. She runs to the fridge every time it opens and greets us as if she hadn’t seen us for days! She brings joy to our lives every day and for that we are immensely grateful.

Big thank you to all the staff and volunteers at the Toronto Humane Society!


Murphy

Murphy

At the end of November, Kavan (now Murphy) came into our home as a foster to adopt. After a few months, we found out that Kavan had a rare condition which caused a very snotty nose, bad breathing and lots of sneezing. We had already fallen in love with his personality, and how he easily made himself at home.

After the first successful procedure, Murphy came home and smelled the walls. We were confused, but we realized how horrible his smelling was before the procedure! Thanks to the amazing people at Toronto Humane Society and TVEH, we were able to do a few more procedures to help him get to where he is today!

Eight months later, we couldn’t imagine our home without Murphy. He snuggles with us every night (and brings us toys in the middle of the night), meows so loud for his wet food every morning, and follows us around the house. Thanks so much for all of your help to give our crazy cat his best life. We’re so happy he’s part of our home now.


Remi

Remi

December 05, 2019

I adopted Remi (previously Geronimo) from THS 2 years ago this December, initially going with no intentions of adopting an animal but I saw her sleeping, curled up in a little ball hugging her broken legs and I knew she was going to be mine. Although she had to have one of her legs amputated, she continues to live her life to the fullest. She never let her disability keep her from chasing after her sister, running after her toys, and climbing up my bed. She is the light of my life and will always be the best decision I have ever made.

When I adopted Remi, I was at one of the lowest points in my life. I was battling depression and anxiety, trying to cope with school, and the transition of living by myself. Seeing Remi not let her disability keep her from doing anything, she gave me so much motivation to continue to battle my own struggles. Remi was depending on me, so I had to be better for her. Two years later, I am finally happy at where I am and I owe that all to my sweet little Remi.
