Thank You, Animal Adopters
What a difference a loving family and a new home can make to a pet’s life. These are photos sent to us from pets’ new owners after their adoption. Thank you, adopters, for making room in your homes and your hearts for them.

Special needs kitten Sophia was born with deformities to her rear legs that give her a unique bunny-hop gait. She’s been in her new home for several months now, and her adoptive mom is absolutely smitten.
“Just wanted to give you an update on Sophia,” she writes. “She continues to steal our hearts. She’s almost six pounds, chases her tail, loves the laser light, snuggles constantly, runs like the devil, climbs like crazy, loves her (cat) brothers — but she is definitely the boss!” ♥️🐾

His new mom writes: “Cash is so smart and already knows his name, come, sit, down, up, and stay. Working on his leash training and learning how to be respectful of the cat! He is already 98% potty and crate trained. When we adopted him he weighed about 9 pounds, he’s now a whopping 16! Thank you all at Calaveras Humane Society for making our experience with you so easy and positive.”

His mom writes: “Leo, AKA Romeo has grown to a handsome man!” We couldn’t agree more.
His sister’s owner comments, “His twin sister lives with me. Her name is Oreo. She is one of the cats I adopted after someone either dumped her or left her behind. I have had her for 2+ years. She is a sweetie.”

“We adopted Dixie not that long ago and she’s become such a wonderful addition to our little family. She steals the pillow on the bed while you’re sleeping and she lays in between your legs on the couch. She has a thousand toys. She likes her kitty brother Jack but she still likes her space. We love her so much. We call her our MS. Dixie.” ♥️🐾

Her new mom writes: “Gypsy is a whole new girl! Chases and kisses her kids all day! She is the perfect fit. Walks right beside us and always keeps the kids in sight. She’s lost 99% of her stress and anxiety, though we still have a few things to work through. We couldn’t have asked for a better girl to grow up with our kiddos. Thank you so much!”

Lionel (was Edgar) is loving life with his new family. “I was super nervous about adopting another cat so soon after we lost our first and only family kitty recently,” says his mom. “He has fit in so well. He is so cuddle crazy and always wants attention. We loved our experience with you guys and are always sharing it with others. Thank you for the new addition to our little family.” ♥️🐾

Arnold was one of the three gigantic (and extremely shy) Great Pyrenees/shepherd mixes we adopted out recently. We were delighted to receive this update from his new dad. “Willie, who is now Arnold, is doing amazing. He has lost his shyness with us and has turned into a huge goof ball. He is proving to be a protector for his little (dog) sisters. He never lets them out of his sight. He is very loved and eating us out of house and home.” ❤️🐾

One-year-old Nero was quite a handful when he arrived in our care. He’d never been indoors, never walked on a leash, and had enough energy to power a small town. He was adopted from us in July.
“Nero is always smiles with floppy lips,” his dad writes. “We are learning each other! There are times he seems smart, and takes my breath away a bit. And then are those other demonstrations that reveal he’s a bit dim. Maybe he’s finding me a bit dim? LOL!”

A happy ending update on Sully, another puppy adopted from us two weeks ago. His new mom writes, “First time in my entire life that a puppy slept all night the very first night without a single whimper or even a single sign of stress! Sully is full of puppy vim and vigor but so far is super smart and catching on with his training.” ♥️🐾

Puppy Daisy Mae, adopted from us a couple weeks ago, enjoys a snuggly nap in her new home with big sister Dakota.
Daisy Mae’s adopters brought Dakota and their other dog to our adoption center to try them out with a new canine family member. When introduced to the first potential dog, all three (including ours!) had the same reaction: “Meh.” Enter option number two, Daisy Mae, and there was instant chemistry all around.
Yep. Dogs definitely have opinions on who their companions should be. These two look awfully pleased they chose one another. ♥️🐾

Lola the dog and Ash the cat
This delightful happy ending is a “two-fer.” Chocolate Lab mix Lola and kitten Ash (formerly Silver) were adopted by the same local couple during our opening weekend.
“They’re doing great!” their new family writes. “Lola loves the lake and car rides, and Ash is such a cuddle bug. Lola listens to us super well, while Ash is still a little work, as she loves to play so much! They get along great and chase each other around the house all day.”
“Thank you so much again! We love them so much.” ♥️🐾

Tex, one of the first dogs adopted from our new shelter, is clearly VERY happy in his new home.
“He loves meeting new people and his favorite thing so far is hanging out with his big brother, Dallas,” writes his new mom. “If they aren’t chasing each other or wrestling, they are snuggled up together sleeping. He is a wonderful addition to the family.”
