Gandolf the Gray is a girl!? Saturday, November 29, 2014
By: Jennifer Coots
It was a trick I tell you!
Last year, we lost our kitty of 14 years, and more than once this year, I have been quoted as calling him the perfect cat. It seemed I would never find another who would win me over. All my life I have had male cats, and never attached to a female cat. Never wanted to. A stroll through NHS changed this, picking cats by appearance and name in order to meet them. There was a sweet little gray boy snuggled up by the name of Gandolf. Gandolf made my top 3 list, even though he was older than what I was originally looking for. The kitty completely won my heart, until I thought nothing of the others on my list. Then the handler told me: Gandolf was a girl kitty. I gave her a sideways glance, she mewled at me and I paid her adoption fees. Gandolf is now named Cassandra, or Cass for short. She loves her new home, plays on her huge cat tree, comes to a whistle and wakes me in the morning with headbutts for the sheer pleasure of my undivided attention. Thank you NHS. SHE has a forever home.
Welcome home Kallie! Friday, November 28, 2014

I can't imagine my home without her in it!
On September 4th, we came to look at the puppies. We had not quite decided if we were going to get one. On the way there, I looked on the website and saw Kallie. I knew I wanted to meet her! When we got to the shelter, we walked by all the kennels until we came across Kallie. I did not want to go any further! Not even the cute little baby puppies couldn't pull me away from her. We took her into a room to spend a little time with her to see if she was right for us. It was an immediate connection. While she was extremely shy, I knew she was perfect. It didn't take long for her to open up when she got home and show her true personality! She is so smart! I can't imagine my home without her in it!

Willow is the sweetest cat I've ever known
I adopted Willow last November, less than a week after I lost my beloved 19-year-old cat. It was a free adoption day, and I thought it was much to soon for me to get another cat. But I looked on the website, saw Willow's picture and decided I would go out to the NHS "just to meet her." She agreed to come home with me, and she has turned out to be the sweetest cat I've have ever known. In this picture, she's sitting on a book about cats, their behaviors and why they do the things they do. I think she thinks the author is giving away too many secrets.

My new family is the best!
I got a new name: it's Zoey. I was known as Sugar to my friends at NHS. The Bruggeman's adopted me 11-15-14. They live in a house with a BIG park behind it and I get to go on daily walks/runs. They always give me belly rubs and lots of love, I give them kisses and lots of love right back. Thanks NHS! Loving my new home.
Still best friends! Friday, November 14, 2014

Great addition to my home
I adopted Milo and Cece from the NHS. While not from the same litter, they were instantly buddies. Milo is curious but easy going. Cece is more careful and a huge cuddle bug! Even though they have very different personalities, they get along really well. What a great addition to my home! Thanks NHS!
Chester's boy Friday, November 14, 2014

Cat and 4-year-old son are best friends
My family and I went to the NHS to look for a new kitty. What we didn't count on was finding the perfect match for my 4-year-old son, who has been very upset since our last cat's passing. My son spotted this big black and white cat a few minutes after we arrived. I had my doubts because he was huge, but he seemed affectionate and fit all the criteria we were looking for: loving, good with kids and dogs. So we took him home. It has only been a few days, but the minute we got him in the car he crawled into my son's lap and layed there the whole way home. Chester has not moved more than 10 feet from his boy. They are best friends already. He fits in so well with our family and I am so glad that we brought him home. So I am happy to say he will be a very happy and content kitty as a new member of our family.

Pig and kitten become buddies.
When Beatrice the kitten came home with us from the Humane Society Friday, Pennington was not sure what to think of the little furball following him everywhere. After a long day of cautiously getting to know each other, the evening ended with a snuggle session. Almost a week later and they are already teaming up to cause trouble. Who knew a pig and cat could be such a perfect pair?!
Matrix Friday, November 7, 2014

Big thanks to the Humane Society!
We came to Humane Society to find a friendly cat to join our family. We needed one that would get along with our older dog, but we still wanted a cat that can be the life of the party. We found just what we were looking for in Matrix. Our adoption counselor showed us only two cats that she thought would fit our lifestyle, and we liked them both, but we loved the spunk in Matrix. She's so snuggly and sweet, but loves to run and play too! She does just fine with our dog, I think they will be great friends soon. Big thanks to the Humane Society!

He's the perfect match for our house!
My husband and I were looking for a loveable pup to add to our family. When we arrived at the Humane Society, we met with 3 dogs and Reptar was the last one. The instant he walked in the room, I knew this was the dog for us. He is so caring and loving. He always wants to please us and gives us lots of kisses. He loves to play and run in the back yard .. especially with tennis balls. We cannot thank the staff at NHS enough for the experience we had. Reptar was the PERFECT match for our house!!
Raider Friday, November 7, 2014

He found his forever home, and we found a best friend
My husband and I adopted Raider a few weeks ago. We couldn't be more happy. Raider is such a sweetheart. He loves to cuddle and we can't imagine our home without him.
We anticipated some behavioral issues based on the surrender information we were given, but he seems like a completely different dog. He rarely ever barks, he is super friendly with people and other animals, he loves to play and go for walks, and he does not chew on anything other than the bones and toys we have given him. He is such a great dog and has almost perfect manners especially since he is only about a year old.
Thank you to everyone at the Humane Society. We love Raider and he is fitting right in. Even our cat Tiger is starting to like him, well as much as a cat can like a dog anyways.
Kaela, Ryan, Raider and Tiger
