Adoption Success Stories – Archive


Here is a recent picture of pretty Akitila, called Kila, with her tall, dark and handsome brother Link. They are resting between their play sessions of “crazy circle” in the yard.
Kila is doing really well. It’s like we have always had her. She and Link had a rough patch when she first got here but they resolved it and are best buds now. Kila is definitely a mommy’s girl. She trails along with me almost everywhere I go. We love her to death!


Annabelle is doing awesome! Everyone loves her. She is getting spoiled a lot. We think she has even gained weight. I have sent several pictures. Someone is always taking pictures. Thank you for bringing her to us!


We love her – she is a sweetheart!
Our two big dogs and our other cat get along very well with her and play constantly.


Archie has adjusted really well and loves his big brother, Baxter. For some reason, he loves to chew on Baxter’s feet. Thank you for making the adoption process so pleasant!


My family adopted Chloe in early April 2013. I would like to share what a wonderful cat Chloe has been and how thankful we are for her. When we brought our son home, Chloe was very curious, more so than she had been with anyone who has been to our home. What we noticed was that Chloe was staying around our baby more and more. Staying in the same room and sitting by his bassinet but never getting in. If he was crying, she would meow at us. If he fussed in his swing, she would walk under it repeatedly. If he was upset while feeding, she would sit on the back of the chair to be near him. One night, our son awoke crying and colicky; my husband was tending him several rooms away. I suddenly awoke to Chloe pawing at the side of the mattress. I looked down and Chloe meowed up at me. I got up and she walked slowly to where my husband was, looking back and meowing the way, alerting me my son needed help. I am amazed at Chloe and so very thankful we adopted her. We knew she was special, but never imagined she would be such an amazing part of our lives and our hearts!

Fuzzy Lola Sophia

Thank you so much for the potty training advice. The stray kitten is now my second furry child. She is an amazing little cat! Fuzzy is on her third week living with us. She is now litter trained and loves to sleep on my lap. She was a little too small to jump on my bed at night so I built her some steps out of boxes. Now she climbs up and down like a “big” kitty and sleeps with me at night.
Bless your group for all the good work you do for the animals out there.


Hi! Just wanted to give you an update on Lyla (previously Hanna). She’s growing so fast and weighs 24 lbs! Her fur has come in beautifully! Lyla was found abandoned at a storage facilty in February when she was just 8 weeks old. She was covered in fleas and had lost most of her fur when she came into the foster program. She is with a loving family that has so much fun with her. They say she howls like a hound dog and is addicted to chasing her tail! Thanks again!

Luca and Kodak

Tallulah turned out to be a boy and is now called Luca … Kodak retained his name.
They are just under 7 pounds now and doing really well. The plants in our house have seen better days, however!
We do have some food to donate. Being boys … they are a bit gassy and we have switched food. We love them very much and they have so much fun together!


Just a quick note to let you know that Bode (previously Mango) is doing fabulous! He has gained a bunch of weight – he loves to eat! He spends every second of every day with us when we are home. He purrs like crazy and gets along great with our dog. He just came and got some pets from me (he is currently watching birdies outside from his perch on the window). I thought I should let you know how perfectly he fits into our family. He’s our happy kitty and we love him to pieces. He even turned my husband into a cat person!


Natalie is now Olivia. (That is our other rescue cat in the photo. She’s a few years older but they are buds. Her name is Gracie!) They both like closets. So I put a bed in one – they decided to move shelves! Everyone is doing well and we love our adopted family very much!
