Cricket
Cricket

I met Cricket at an event the local Humane Shelter was hosting when she was 6 weeks old. She was a beautiful little puppy with loving big brown eyes. When I got her home, she instantly began playing with the ball I had bought her, hopping around and pouncing on it. Because of all her hopping, I gave her the name Cricket. Cricket instantly became part of the family and holds a very special place in my heart. She is truly my best friend! - Yolanda

Tinker Toy and Squirt
Tinker Toy and Squirt

Tinker Toy and Squirt were shelter cats. They have all become beautiful, healthy and entertaining pets. I have found that adopted pets are truly grateful to have an owner who loves and spoils them, but the shelters are full of so many more who are waiting for homes! After my experiences adopting, I also decided to contribute my time to my local shelter. I now spend two days a week volunteering, in the hope that I can assist others in finding the perfect pet. - Janet

Socrates
Socrates

Socrates is one-of-a-kind. But then again, aren't all pets? He is affectionate (and becoming even more so as he grows older), while still remaining adequately aloof with a mind of his own. We love him and consider him part of the family. He was just a kitten when my husband adopted him and readily accepted me when I came onto the scene. We choose to adopt our pets from shelters because there is always such a wide variety of loving pets that just want a chance for a great home. - Suzanne

Ringo
Ringo

Ringo stole our hearts from the moment we met him. We had discussed adopting one of several available dogs with the shelter coordinator. She expressed to us that she had a very special, red & white border collie available. He would need a very loving atmosphere - where he could really be part of the family (& get lots of exercise). We were up to the challenge...and have cherished every moment that he's been a part of our lives. True to border collie type, Ringo has a loving heart, is very intelligent, and has lots of energy. He's an obedience whiz, a frisbee maniac and a great running buddy. We are thankful everyday for all the love he's given us - and for those who gave him a chance to find a loving home. - Pam
