HAPPY DOG TAILS

Treat (now Happy)
Adopted 12/2013

Dolly

 

 

"We changed our Chihuahua mix terrior named "Treat" to "Happy" and he lives up to his new name. His transition into our lifestyle has been smooth and nearly seamless. Thanks in large part to our doggie door, housetraining was not ever an issue. We don't promote a alpha heirarchy with our 2 Scotties and Happy has adjusted to this beautifully. "

Gabby & Dorian (now Jax)
Adopted 12/2013

Dorian

 

 

"Hello Weld county Humane Society!

Just an update for you. We adopted Gabby & Dorian in December when we lost out 14 year old plott hound and felt lost without her. These two have proven to be amazing dogs with really terrific personalities. We are so lucky to have them as part of our family. Attached are a photos of each. We have renamed Dorian. He is now "Jax" and Gabby has stayed Gabby because she insisted! Thanks for all you do to help animals in need and brighten the lives of families!

Sincerely, The Faunces"

Gabby

Bissell (now Dorian)
Adopted 12/2013

Dorian

"Our whole family has completely fallen in love with him! He is very mellow for the most part, but does have several 2-5 min all,out play times. He loves his squeaky stuffed toy & my daughters old Pokemon stuffed animals. We start our weekday out waking up the kid together & Dorian is very adamant about taking them to school as well. We spend the rest of our day cuddled up on the couch reading or cleaning the house. I think he follows me to keep me from being lonely ;). Our 8yr old domestic short hair cat has now adjusted to him & they get along well, except when he gets on the kitchen table. Our cat know it is off limits, but Dorian doesn't care. He gets very upset when we go somewhere without him. If we are gone more than a couple hours or so he will go in our daughters room & bring all her clothing from the hamper into the living room and hide our sons toys all over the place, we even found some Legos in the bathroom and under our bed. Needless to say he not left alone for very long. I usually take him wherever I go, as long as he can come inside with me. I have found that most stores in Greeley are fine with small dogs in their store as long as they stay in the shopping cart and don't pee on anything. For the first few nights Dorian thought our bed was his and would have nothing to do with the dog bed. He has since moved to sleeping with our 7yr old son. Now our son sleeps sideways so he can be closer to Dorian. All and all I don't think we could have picked a better companion for our family. Thanks for all your help while we were looking for the perfect new family member. We found him!!! "

Dolly
Adopted 12/2013

Dolly

 

 

"Hi

HELLO DOLLY
WELL HELLO DOLLY
ITS SO NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE WHEN I GET HOME.
She gets so excited and just runs circles.... "

Sneakers (now Silas)
Adopted 7/2011, update from 3/2014

Dolly

 

 

"I adopted my sweet baby Silas from the Humane Society of Weld County when he was only 4 months old about 2 1/2 years ago. Back then, you guys were calling him Sneakers. I just thought you guys would like to know that he is happy and healthy. He faithfully patrols the window to guard his yard from the evil squirrel and spends his days snuggled in his grandma's lap while I am at work. He thoroughly enjoys naptime on his pillow and there is nothing in this world he loves more than his orange ball. He hates my alarm every morning, but puts up with it if I snuggle him before we get up. He taught my sister's puppy, Missy, how to play with other dogs after they adopted her and helped her and their other dog, Sophie, become inseparable friends. His grandma hates doing her physical therapy, but can't resist throwing his ball for him, so he keeps her pretty active. He's really excited to get a new brother or sister when I adopt again in a few months. I cannot thank you guys enough for rescuing him and nursing him back to health. I can't imagine my life without him. -Amy "

 

HAPPY CAT TAILS

Lovey (now Lily)
Adopted 3/2014

Bella

 

"We adopted Lovey about a month ago and wanted to send you an update.

Her name is Lily and she is much loved. She has brought a ton of joy into our childrens and our lives. Our cats passed away in the last two years and we have been without a cat in the home since then. They were 19 years old."

Edith (now Maeve)
Adopted 5/2013

Bella

 

"Kevin and I adopted a kitten there last May. You called her Edith. We call her Maeve or itty bitty kissy face or Maevalicious. She still purrs when we pick her up. The photo attached was taken at about 6 months old. She is now just over a year old.

Thank you for saving this kitty so we could have this big love in our home!"

Chevy (now Romeo)
Adopted 12/2013

Bella

 

"Hi, We adopted our Himalayan/mix cat Romeo (originally "Chevy" and then "Ford" and eventually named "Romeo") in December of 2013. My husband and I went in to the shelter asking for a friendly, docile cat for our family. We have 4 children under the age of 10 and a 5 year old pit bull who is also a shelter animal… so the cat needed to be pretty easy going! The staff pointed me right to Romeo and after meeting with him I decided to put him on hold. The next day we came back with the whole family and he was a big hit with the kids. He loves to be held, played with, as long as he is near someone he is happy! Even better, he was on sale, perfect!

Since he's been home with us the transition has been smooth. For the first week it was all about getting the dog and cat okay with one another. Since he’s so affectionate and sweet, we renamed him "Romeo". He loves to jump up in the kids laps and be pet and hang out on the bunk beds in my daughter’s room. He's been gaining back some weight that he lost (he was a stray) and generally seems very happy.

The volunteers were super helpful in finding us the right animal, with no pressure to adopt and a quick adoption process in the end. They assured me that if anything went wrong they were there to help us. I will definitely be pointing friends to this shelter in the future. I’ve attached a picture of Romeo and one of my daughters."

Bella

"Hello All, This picture explains it all. She is absolutely the best Kitten in the world! So carefree! She loves to lay on her back!!! We love her so much! She has brought so much love into our home and we couldn't imagine life without her! Thank you to each and every one of you at the Weld County Humane Society."

Blanche (now Zoe)
Adopted 12/2013

Bella

 

"We changed Blanche's name to Zoe. She is a very sweet little girl and is starting to get more comfortable around the house. We are beginning to see a more playful side of her which we really are enjoying. She loves to cuddle a couple times a day which we both are more than happy to do."

Mason (now Mr. Snuggles)
Adopted 12/2013

"We adopted a 6 month old light orange tabby named Mason. He now goes by Mr. Snuggles. He has fit into our family so well. He doesn't mind our spirited children in fact he spends his time following them around the house and watching them play. He was intended to be a Christmas gift for my daughter but he has become a beloved member of the family for all of us! Not to mention the adoption was fast and easy and the employees we knowledgable and courteous! It was a great experience!! ."
