When we see a dog or cat find a forever home it makes us so happy! We’d love to see your pet’s success story. If you have adopted a pet from HSLC please send us a picture or two along with your how your pet is doing and we’ll post it on our website to share with others. Your stories inspire us to continue to do this good work.


Miss Nova

November 8, 2019 – Miss Nova found her furever home!

Yet another dog within the past month was adopted by HSLC volunteers! This couple has been dedicated to HSLC for many years and have had rescues in their home before. Recently their beloved girl passed and left a hole in their hearts like all great pets do!

Since this couple is at the shelter often, they get to meet lots of our animals. When Nova came to HSLC, they fell in love with her! They fostered her for a while and this week she became an official family member!

Congrats to Nova and her new parents, we couldn’t be happier for you all!

Ember

November 14, 2019 – Remember this sweet girl? She got adopted!

Ember was only about a week old when she and her siblings went to live in one of HSLC’s foster homes. All of her siblings were adopted, but she stayed in the shelter waiting.

Last Thursday was her day! Her new mother saw her Pet of the Week story on this Facebook page, and she decided Ember needed a loving home.

She was happily adopted and will get plenty of playtime with her new dog at cat siblings.

Congrats to her and her new family!

Tamara
Koa

October 25, 2019 – Last week was wonderful, several cats were adopted!

Tamara and Koa were part of that bunch!

Koa’s Story: About two years ago, a family came to the shelter to adopt a cat, and they took Carter home. It was time to get a friend for Carter, so they came back to the shelter. After spending time looking, they decided Koa would fit into Carters life and their life. Koas new family now consists of her parents, another cat, and two boys ages 11 and 6. She will receive lots of love and play time!

Tamara’s Story: She came to the shelter when her person passed away, but now she has her forever home! Her new parents had only one cat, and they felt they needed another cat to make their home complete. So, Tamara was the chosen one. She is a little shy, so it might be a little while before she is comfortable with her new surroundings, but there were lots of hugs and kisses she seemed to enjoy before they left for her forever home.

Levi
Pumpkin
Tigger

October 28, 2019 – More cats were adopted and we are so very happy!

Pumpkin, Levi and Tigger all found homes this month!

Pumpkins story: Losing a cat after a serious illness is a very sad occasion, but adopting a cat is a happy time! One of
HSLC’s new volunteers decided her family needed a cat to make their home complete again. Her family came to the shelter and decided Pumpkin should be the cat in their home!

Levi & Tigger’s story: Many years ago before the shelter was built, a couple adopted two cats from HSLC. They were from
the same litter, and they thought they should be in the same home. As time went on, one of the two cats passed away, and a short time ago, the second cat also passed away. They were truly loved, and the family needed to have a cat in their lives again. So, a trip to the shelter resulted in Levi finding a forever home. But, while completing the adoption of Levi, a decision was made to also take Tigger home.

Congrats to all of these great cats and their new families!

Elvira
Elvira

November 4, 2019 – Many years ago, HSLC began with a small group of dedicated people. On Saturday one of those people came to the shelter with her family to look at cats. The two children, a boy 8 and a girl 5, could each choose a cat to add to their family. It didn’t take long. The young man found Rascal in a very short period of time. He was the one! Took the daughter a little longer, but Elvira seemed to be the one
to make her way into her heart.

Congrats to these two and their new family!

Nemo
Precious
Dolly
Susie

November 6, 2019 – On October 25th, we had 4 cats adopted! HSLC was very busy with adoptions in October and we could not be happier for all the dogs and cats that found their forever homes!

Congrats to Nemo, Dolly, Precious and Suzie, and their new families!

Quinn

October 15, 2019 – Another HSLC dog was adopted by another HSLC volunteer!

A past volunteer for HSLC has come back and is working with both the dogs and the cats. While working with the dogs, she met and fell in love with Quinn. Just working with him wasn’t enough, she came on her off time to play with him. After a few days, a decision was made. Quinn was going home
with her. Quinn went to his forever home. She has already sent an update and pictures. He is adjusting well to his new home, and he looks like a very happy dog!

Shortyv

October 21, 2019 – Last week, Shorty was adopted!

He is a senior citizen. He has medical problems. He is loved. A lady knew about him but didn’t really think she should adopt. As a matter of fact, she came to the shelter, talked, but did not look at him.

Then, fate took a hand. She and her husband were headed home, and they made a decision to turn left instead of right. That brought them to the shelter. Shorty was brought to the adoption room, interacted with them, and won their hearts; especially when he snuggled up and nestled himself into the man’s beard. Shorty went to his forever home where he will be much loved as he should be.

Xavier
Cloudy

October 22, 2019 – Always fun when two pets are adopted together!

A husband and wife came into the shelter looking for a cat…..at least she was looking for a cat. She went into every room, touched every cat, and couldn’t make up her mind.

He looked too, but she was relentless trying to find just the right one. Finally, she decided on Xavier and wavered about Cloudy. Did they want two cats?

An application was completed and approved. By then a decision was made. Yes, they wanted two cats. Xavier and Cloudy were off to their forever home!

We were updated that once they were home, they had explored, Xavier had decided on his resting spot, and Cloudy
was following the husband around everywhere he went.

Duncan
Athena

October 23, 2019 – Last Tuesday was a busy day at the shelter. Several people came at the same time looking at the cats.

Every time a door opened, a kitten (or two or three) ran out, they were retrieved and put back. Amidst all of this, people were petting and cuddling the cats.

Two of those people needed a little more life in their house, so they both chose a kitten to adopt. Today, those two kittens went to their forever home. Their new fathers went on a kitten shopping spree before bringing them home, so they will be entertaining and entertained…..new house to explore, new toys to play with, and best of all, new “fathers” to love.

Congrats to Duncan and Athena!

Avery

October 7, 2019 – The last week of September was great for our pups! The first dog to find her forever home was Avery!

She is just under a year old, full of energy and lab puppy exuberance, but on adoption day she was a very shy
young lady. Avery was going to her forever home. She had met her new “parents” and her new “sibling” and had played with him with her usual energy. But this was different.

A lady she had not seen for a few days and going out a different door was scary to her! But not so scary that she couldn’t give her new “mother” a kiss.

She was all decked out in a new blue halter and ready to go for a ride in a car to her new home which will soon be a lot less scary, and she will be handing out lots and lots of kisses.

Teddy Bear

October 8, 2019 – The second pup to find a forever home the last week of September was Teddy Bear!

One of the blessings of being a volunteer at HSLC is interacting with the animals. Its watching them
change, grow, and become part of your heart. Its watching them find forever homes. Its even adopting one of
them!!

That’s what happened one Friday night. After working in the dog area, a husband and wife volunteer team signed all of the adoption papers and made Teddy Bear part of their family. HSLC and Teddy thanks them for all of the hours they devote to helping the animals and for giving a wonderful dog a forever home!

Bo

October 8, 2019 – Last dog to be adopted at the end of September was Bo, and by yet, another HSLC volunteer!

A volunteer and his wife came to the shelter to look at the dogs. The volunteer already knew which dog he wanted to take home, but his wife had not yet met him. They played, got acquainted, and took an application. Time passed. Then, on that Wednesday night, the volunteer came from work to adopt Bo.

What was unusual about this was that the volunteer was on his way home to Ohio for a few days, and Bo was going to travel a long distance to a new home with other animals.
Was this going to work? It did! Bo is living in his forever home, and one of his new “siblings” is another dog named Lady who was adopted from HSLC. A family of animal lovers that HSLC is very thankful for!

Abby
Tiger

October 14, 2019 – Two more cats have made their way to a forever home this month! Abby & Tiger

Abby came to HSLC from animal control. She was rescued by a very caring lady. When Abby came into the shelter, her rescuer visited her frequently. She even donated enough money to pay for Abby’s adoption. Finally, an adopter came for Abby. They came from another town just to meet her, apply for her and adopt her. The first plan of action was to keep the adoption a secret so he could surprise his
mother who was Abby’s rescuer. His mother’s prayers were answered. Abby got a wonderful forever home, and she could visit her frequently.

Tiger’s story: A lady and her mother drove from Bloomington to the HSLC shelter to meet the kittens. After visiting
every room, she and Tiger chose each other. Lots of holding, some kisses, and it was absolutely a given….Tiger was the one. The application was completed, and she went back home for a few days. Again, lots of cuddling before the ride home. Not only does Tiger have a new home, she has a new
name…Sally.

Pearl and Callie

September 23, 2019 – A little over a week ago, our hearts were warmed when this pair got adopted! They were brought to the shelter after their owner had passed and had been at the shelter for quite a while. Such a sweet story!

A young lady came into the shelter looking for a dog. On her way back to the kennel area, she stopped, looked in room 4, went in and picked up Purrl. After holding her for a little while,
she went on her way to the dogs. She spent some time with one of them, came back to room 4 and again interacted with Purrl and Callie.

She asked for both a dog and a cat application. Later that day she came back with an application for Purrl and Callie. On 9/11 two of our very senior cats, went to their forever home to live out the rest of their lives.

Congrats to this pair and their new mom!

Smokey

September 28, 2019 – Another kitten has found their forever home!

A prospective adopter came to the HSLC shelter to look at the kittens. She and one of the kittens in room 3 became good friends. An application was made and approved but
since she lived out of town, she had to wait a week to take him home.
She and her daughter were waiting when the shelter opened, and her daughter waited patiently while all the paperwork was done.
Finally, Smokey was put into her arms! After some snuggle time, Smokey went into the carrier for the car trip to her new forever home.

Kizzie
Sweetie
BoyBoy

October 1, 2019 – Remember these three cuties?? Kizzy, Sweetie, and Boy Boy were adopted on 9/14!! Since the three of them were so bonded, they had to be adopted together.

Kizzy, the mother, had never been separated from her children, and it would be cruel to do so now. Their new “mother” has lost several of her dogs this past year (everyone was well into the teen years), and her house seemed very quiet.

Now, there are three new sets of paws to add to the family. The two dogs already in the home have learned to accept the coming and going of different dogs, and they will not be surprised to have new ones join them in their forever home.

Owlette

October 1, 2019 – Owlette was adopted last week!

Her new family consists of an adult daughter and her father. They had lost a dog, and they thought a cat might be just what they needed to fill the void. Shortly after the shelter
was open, the paperwork was signed, and Owlette was introduced to the father.

After cuddling and being told she was going to a great home, she reluctantly went into the carrier and out to the door to her forever home where she will be queen of all she surveys.

Ramie

September 11, 2019 – The last week of August was very busy, especially in our cat and kitten rooms!

Ramie has found her forever home!

She was adopted by a young lady who is busy doing her student teaching, but who needed a kitten to keep her life interesting.

A week ago she and her mother came to look at the kittens, and Ramie with her black mustache and sweet ways charmed herself into the young lady’s heart.

Congrats to Ramie and her new mom!

Sugar

September 13, 2019 – This adorable senior found her forever home last week!

Sugar had been in the shelter a few weeks waiting for that right person to come along and take her home, and it happened!

Her new dad has been without a dog for several years, and he felt as if the time was right for a new best friend. Sugar seemed to be the one, and a bond was quickly formed.

As he held her in his arms while leaving the shelter, she wrapped her front paws around his arm as if to tell the world she was going home with him!

Whisperer

September 17, 2019 – Another kitten has found his forever home!

Last week a lady came to the shelter to look for a playmate for her cat. She opened the door to room 2 and a black and white cat ran out of the door. After retrieving the cat, she said her cat at home was also a door dasher.

She visited every room, played with all of the cats, and decided that the door dasher was the cat for her. He was very affectionate and seemed to really like her. After the
adoption papers were signed, and it was time to check the microchip number, Whisperer came right to her as if he knew he had found a forever home, and her cat found a new playmate.

Jada

September 18, 2019 – This beautiful girl wasn’t with us long before finding her new home!

A lady came to the shelter to look at our dogs. She was especially interested in Jada because she had a
boxer at home. After interacting with her for a while, she completed an application for adoption. All was well, and the application was approved.

Last week she brought a beautiful brindle boxer with her to
meet Jada. Jada was very interested, but Bella had too many strange smells to investigate to be too excited about a dog she could see.

But, she decided to adopt thinking the dogs would work it out since there seemed to be no animosity. With both dogs in the car, Bella’s interest in Jada increased, and a bond was beginning to form. So, Jada Ann went to her forever home with a new dog friend, parents, and three human siblings.

Congrats to Jada and her new family!

Royal

August 19, 2019 – Royal made his way home last week!!

Persistence pays dividends! A young man visited the shelter many, many times looking for his first dog. He liked several of them but there wasn’t that magic connection. Finally, he came, and Royal was there. That, he decided, was his dog.

But, Royal had to wait a while before he could be adopted. In the meantime, he visited the shelter several times, asked questions, played with Royal, and prepared to take
him home.

After all the adoption papers were signed, he chose a couple of toys for Royal to take home. And, he chose wisely. Royal walked happily out of the door carrying a big orange stuffed “critter” on his way to his forever home.

Congrats to Royal and his new forever family!

Gump

September 6, 2019 – Last Friday was another bittersweet day as one of our few remaining “long term residents” got adopted into their forever home!

You have all seen and heard a lot about Gump over the past year or so he has been with us. This sweet boy has a lot of love to give and it just took a long time to find the right family who wanted him as their own.

Gump will have a few human siblings in his new home and he was already playing with them before he left the shelter.

Congrats to him and his new family!

Finn
Grumpy

September 9, 2019 – This week and next week be prepared for several stories of recent adoptions! The past couple of weeks have been very happy at the shelter!

Today we are celebrating the adoption of Finn and Grumpy!

One day a mother and her children came to the shelter to pet the cats and kittens. They stayed a long time playing with them. Then, a day later, the same mother came with the father to look at kittens. They sat on the floor and played with them too.

A decision was made as to which ones to adopt. The
application was made for Finn and Grumpy. The mother came to adopt both kittens bright and early one Saturday morning. Her children were sleeping when she left home so the kittens were to be a surprise! Imagine the delight when the kittens and children met!

Alfie

September 10, 2019 – Alfie has found a fantastic forever home!

An 11-year-old, 8-year-old and a 6-year-old, raised sweet corn, picked it and took it around the neighborhood and sold it. When they had enough money, they came to the shelter to play with the kittens.

One kitten stood out as the one they wanted to take home. Last week Alfie went to his forever home to be loved and cared for by three young people who worked hard to be able
to have a kitten.

These same children, for several years, have asked for animal food and supplies instead of birthday presents to donate to HSLC for the animals. Alfie is a lucky kitten to have such a caring family!

Thor
Chico

August 5, 2019 – The cutest duo got adopted last week!

A young couple was looking for a dog to enrich their lives. Their apartment complex had a 50-pound dog limit, so they came to HSLC and met all of the under 50-pound dogs in the kennel area. On the way back through the shelter, they stopped in room 3 to meet Thor and Chico.

After a few minutes of playtime, they decided they wanted to take both of them home. They, too, believed they were so bonded it would be cruel to separate them.

It was bittersweet watching them go out the door to their new lives…….happiness that they had found a home and people who loved them, and a little touch of sadness that they were no longer part of our lives at the shelter. They are two very special little dogs!

Spike

August 14, 2019 – Spike has found his forever home!

Spike met his new dad early last week, and it was instant love. Without a moment’s hesitation, Spike was greeting him in his usual frenetic fashion, and his prospective dad loved every minute of it.

Later last week Spike was officially adopted. His new dad works from home, so Spike can have all of the love and attention he needs.

After lots of kisses, Spike and his dad went to the truck to start the trip home and Spike sat right on his lap. A last look out of the window, a big smile, and Spike was on the way to his forever home.

Ginger
Groucho

August 20, 2019 – Do you recall our recent feature of these two special cats? Well, we are over the moon excited to report they both have found their forever home! Not only are they now in their forever home, but they get to stay together!

This awesome family came to the shelter looking for a dog, but ultimately all fell in love with these two special cats. The family was aware the cats are FIV, but they didn’t mind, they could see how much they deserved a place in a loving home.

A big congrats and thank you goes out to this newly expanded family!

Jada

August 21, 2019 – Jada found her forever home!

About four months ago a little tabby cat and her littermates were born and a few weeks later they were found in a basement with no parent. They were brought to HSLC and put in a foster home. When they were old enough, they came to the shelter and it was there that a young couple fell in love with Jada. They have another kitten at home who is a little
older than Jada so she will have a playmate. Last weekend she went to her forever home.

Kobra

July 19, 2019 – Kobra was adopted!!

Kobra ‘s stay at the HSLC shelter was a short one. He was loved, but due to circumstances beyond control, his family was no longer able to care for him.

But he has now found a new family! They had been watching the website looking for a small dog to add to their family. A few days ago, they came to the shelter, met Kobra, completed an application, then a couple days later he officially became part of their family.

Besides the parents, his new home includes two human siblings, a min pin, and a cat. Kobra approved of the whole procedure. He patiently waited until the papers were signed, and then he snuggled into the arms of his new “mother”. He was quite content to be in her arms on his way to his new life.

Congrats to Kobra and his new family!!

Phoebe

July 30, 2019 – Phoebe has been adopted!

When Phoebe’s picture appeared on PetFinder, many people were interested in adopting her. Several applications were made, and Saturday she went to her forever home.

Her new “mother” was very, very excited to have a new family member. And, since Phoebe is the only child, she will be completely spoiled.

Both Phoebe and “mom” went home happily! Congrats!

Nova and Gypsy

July 31, 2019 – Its pawtastic! Nova and Gypsy found their forever home!

Nova and Gypsy lived in the same home and were very bonded. When they lived in the shelter, the best time of the day for them was when both kennels were cleaned at the same time, and they could play.

From now on, they will be able to continue to play together. Their new “parents” wanted two dogs, and when they found Nova and Gypsy, they could not wait to meet them. Not only were the dogs perfect for them, they knew and liked each other, so now they just had to learn to love their new home.

Today two very happy dogs and two very happy people started a new life together.

Congrats to the new family!

Creed

August 2, 2019 – Happy news for Creed!

Creed has a new name (Cole), a new four-legged brother, and a forever home. His new “parents” were looking for a dog to be company for the dog they had adopted, so they came to the shelter to meet everyone and see who made a connection.

The dog they chose was Creed, but their dog had to
approve. So they went home, got their dog, and came back for a meet and greet. All went well! So earlier this week Creed and his kong got in the car for a trip to his new home.

Some of you will remember his new “brother” who was adopted when he was a puppy….Butterscotch. Today Butterscotch is a big handsome dog named Cooper who just welcomed Creed into his forever home.

Congrats to their new family!

Twitch

July 5, 2019 – Twitch has been adopted!

Several days ago, a young lady came to the shelter looking for a kitten. She didn’t have any other pets and thought a kitten would suit her life. She started looking in room four at the older cats and worked her way down to all the cat rooms.

She returned to room four. Twitch had stolen her heart. After some time with him, she was sure he was the one she wanted to take home.

Twitch went with her to his forever home…..a young lady and her 12-year-old kitten.

Jasper

July 8, 2019 –Jasper is the most recent dog adopted and has a sweet story!

He was born in September and spent the first eight weeks of his life living with his mother, father, and brother. Then he was adopted. Things did not work out with his adoptive
parents, so they relinquished him to HSLC.

His first family discovered that he was in the shelter, so
they came to take him home. Jasper went home last week to live on a farm with the other dogs in his family (he looks just like his brother), cows, pigs, and chickens.

Better yet, he has a human mom and dad and four human brothers and sisters. Hopefully, some puppy memories will kick in and Jasper will quickly remember and adjust to his new life.

Sox

July 9, 2019 – Our hearts are full, Sox is adopted!

Sox came to HSLC, went to the vet, and tested positive for feline leukemia. He spent quite some time in the isolation area because feline leukemia is contagious to other cats.

One day a young lady came to the shelter looking to adopt a cat. She met Sox, and after hearing his story, decided to become his foster family.

Since April, Sox has lived as a foster cat entertaining her, her mother and her grandfather. Sox’s health has presented a few problems, but he keeps them all on their toes because he
has learned to open cabinet doors and just generally get into everything possible.

Last week Sox became a permanent family member as his foster home became his forever home.

Dexter

July 15, 2019 – Adorable Dexter was adopted!

For some time Dexter has been losing weight and just generally not doing well. Many tests were given, and gratefully, he was negative for the most serious possible problems. But, while all of this was happening, his “father” was trying to decide whether Dexter would be too much for him to handle. After some time a decision was made.
Dexter was supposed to be his. He applied, was accepted, and before taking him home, signed them up for obedience classes.
He is determined to one day be able to take Dexter to give comfort to those who are ill. Dexter was his usual happy, undisciplined self until he climbed into the front seat of the truck to begin his ride to his new home and his new life. He is already much loved!

Bo

June 12, 2019 – Bo has found his forever home!

A young boy and his father came in looking for a black cat. They met Bo and it was an instant match! When adoption day came, Bo was thrilled to go!

Congrats to Bo and his new family!

Cosmo

June 14, 2019 – Cosmo and Kato found their furever home!

About 18 months ago, Cosmo was adopted from HSLC and then the family got Kato. The family had some changes and Cosmo and Kato were relinquished to HLSC. Thankfully this week, they found a new forever home and got to stay together!

Congrats to them and their family!

Kato

June 14, 2019 – Cosmo and Kato found their furever home!

About 18 months ago, Cosmo was adopted from HSLC and then the family got Kato. The family had some changes and Cosmo and Kato were relinquished to HLSC. Thankfully this week, they found a new forever home and got to stay together!

Congrats to them and their family!

Tessa

June 17, 2019 – Tessa has found her forever home!

A week or so ago a father and his daughter came to the shelter to visit and pet a few cats. While
socializing, Tessa, one of the kittens, made herself known to them.
One day at home, the young
daughter suggested to her mother that they get Tessa for her dad for Fathers Day. Mom explained that
a cat was a long time commitment, and they should not just gift him with a cat without his permission.
Dad responded that if he could, he would take them all. Mom paid a visit to meet Tessa, an application
was made, and today Tessa went to her forever home.

She joins two other cats already living there…one of which was adopted from HSLC.

Congrats to Tessa and her new family!

Pippa

June 3, 2019 – Pippa has found her forever home!

A five-year-old has gotten a new kitten as his pet! He and his mom came to the shelter to visit the cats and fell in love with Pippa. Pippa has found a great home where she will receive lots of love and attention.

Congrats to Pippa and her new family!

Evan

June 5, 2019 – A week ago we reported two black cats that found their forever home together and this week its two white cats!

Evan and Ivory found their forever home last weekend!

A couple who lives outside of Logan County lost their white cat of 16 years, and even though they had
several small dogs and a foster dog, something was missing from their household. So, they began the
search for white cats – two of them, same litter – and, here they were at the Humane Society of Logan
County shelter. All good things come to those who wait, and Evan and Ivory had waited for them to
come to take them to their forever home.

Congrats to all!

Missy

June 11, 2019 – Missy has waited a year and has finally found her forever home!

She came because her family who had her since she was six weeks old was moving and could not take her with them. Missy has been waiting for her new home for a long time, and last week she was adopted and taken to her
forever home. Her new “mother” said she reminded her of a beloved cat she had had in the past.

Congrats to Missy and her new family

Baby Girl

May 22, 2019 – Baby Girl has found her forever home!

For several weeks, a young couple came to the shelter on Saturday to meet the dogs. They met and played with almost all of them. There were two who were special to them. But, before they made a decision, one was adopted.

Playing, petting and walking over a period of time convinced them that their first inclination was right. Baby Girl needed to go home with them. And, Saturday that happened! Baby Girl, now named Lucy, became part of their family.

Lacey

May 24, 2019 – Lacey found her forever home last week!

Lacey was a very popular resident but she found the perfect home to go to! Her new home knows how much she loves to be held and cuddled and they assured us they had to the time and attention to spoil her as she deserves!

Congrats to Lacey and her new family!

Artemis

May 30, 2019 – Two lovely black cats have found their forever home together!

For many years, a dog was part of this family. But one daughter always wanted a black cat. After the
dog passed away, the house was empty. The mother and her two daughters were browsing the web when they went to Petfinder and found Artemis and Posideon.

They traveled to HSLC to meet them, and the cat dream was going to come true. Posideon and Artemis started their new lives as Binx and Bo.

Congrats to them both and their new family!

Poseidon

Congrats to them both and their new family!

Buddy

April 27, 2019 – Today Buddy’s new “father” came to the shelter to make Buddy’s adoption official. Days earlier, he met his new “father” first and immediately cuddled down into his arms. After a little cuddling, then a longer get-off-work wait, his new “mother” came to meet him. Last came a meeting with his new dog “sibling”. Everyone was happy, so an application was made. “Mom” was reluctant to give him back until all of the process could be completed, so she made the “father” promise to bring Buddy to her at work after the adoption.

Buddy is now in his forever home with his new family who fell absolutely in love with him.

Pepper

May 7, 2019 – On Tuesday, our sweet Pepper went to his forever home!

He is a lively seven-year-old lab mix with plenty of love to give! His new dad came to visit him with his family and fell in love! After the application was approved, Pepper was ready to go home on Tuesday!

Juliet

May 13, 2019 – Perfect mothers day week adoption story!

In the past year, all of Juliettes kittens have been adopted and they are all settled in their forever homes. Well this past week, it was Juliette’s turn to go to her forever home!

In her new home, she has loving parents and a lab/corgi mix sibling! She has already been re-named “Cuddles”.

Congrats to her and her new family!

Dot

May 14, 2019 – Dot found her new forever home last week!

Dot was one of the litter puppies we had last year. She was adopted then brought back due to changes with her family. Luckily she has found her new forever home and will get all the love and attention she needs!

Congrats to Dot and her family, we are so happy for her!

Dale

March 30, 2019 – Many months ago two small kittens were found freezing in a box set outside. A man rescued the kittens, and he and his family tried to save them but decided to give them to the humane society. They went to a foster mother who successfully saved one kitten. On Saturday a lady came to the shelter with her children to pet cats. She told the story of the kittens and called them by name. When told that Dale was still in the shelter and available for adoption, she broke down in tears. Today Dale went home with the family who had saved him from freezing so many months ago. He is now living in his forever home that was meant to be.

Candy

April 6, 2019 – Before Candy was available for adoption, a father and daughter came to the shelter looking for a dog. They immediately chose Candy and willingly waited until she was officially ready to be adopted before making an application. Today, Candy went to her forever home. She has a new “sister”, a Jack Russell who was adopted from HSLC several years ago; a new name, Sissy; and two teenage family members. Best of all, she has a forever home. A dog as sweet at Candy deserves all the good things in life.

Sophie

April 6, 2019 – Several applications and many more inquiries were made regarding Sophie. But, just the right family came to the shelter to meet her. Sophie is so bewildered by all the new things in life, so she has to take a few minutes to decide if what is happening is good. She did decide that this family was good. They have had three Dalmatians in the past, so they are aware of the breed. Best of all, “grandma” and “grandpa” came, and Sophie liked them too; especially “grandpa”. Today she went to her forever home to start a new life with many, many new experiences.

Zoey

April 27, 2019 – Zoey, the wire-haired fox terrier puppy met her new family a couple of days ago, and there was an immediate bond. She responded well to directions, and she obviously loved being with them. Her “grandparents” who will do babysitting duty also came to meet her. She thought they were great too! Today she went to her forever home. After all of the paperwork was done, Zoey was brought to the adoption room. Tail wagging and bouncing, she was excited to meet everyone again. After being in the room for a few minutes, she leaped on to “grandpa’s” lap and settled in like she belonged. Zoey was pleased with her choice of a forever home.

Sampson

Febuary 23, 2019 – After bringing their dog to the shelter to meet Sampson, an application was made to give Sampson a forever home. An appointment was made to do the adoption on Tuesday, but on Saturday the shelter received a call asking if the adoption could be made today. Their work schedules allowed someone to be home with the two dogs for several days if they could take him home on Saturday. So, before the planned day, Sampson went to his forever home to meet his new “sibling” and start his new life.

Brooklyn

March 2, 2019 – Brooklyn went to her forever home today! Her new “dad” recently lost his longtime dog, and he was anxious to have another dog to love. He saw Brooklyn’s picture in the IGA flyer and came to the shelter to meet her. He looked at the other dogs, but Brooklyn was the one he wanted to take home. At the first meeting, Brooklyn went right to him to be petted. Today she went home, a little bewildered looking, but ready to get into the truck. For a while she thought she was going to drive, but soon moved over into the passenger seat on her way to her new life. Probably by now, she is ensconced on the couch watching television.

Jingles

March 7, 2019 – A young couple had looked at HSLC’s cats online and decided they wanted to adopt a particular black cat. So, they made a trip to the shelter and met all of the cats, but the one they wanted showed no interest in them. They decided on another of the black cats. Completed an application and waited for approval. When the approval call came, they had changed their minds and decided they wanted to take Jingles home. And that is one of the reasons for the at least 24-hour wait after making an application. It gives the adopter time to think about the decision. But, no more thinking was needed. Jingles is a darling, playful kitten and that is what they wanted. By now he has met his “siblings”, a ten year old cat and a poodle. He has also heard his new name, Bowie. New family, new name, a forever home!

Fuzzball

March 30, 2019 – One afternoon a lady came to the Humane Society of Logan County shelter looking for a black cat. She played with all of the cats in the room and decided that Fuzzball, a grey tabby cat, was the one who would best fit into her home. An application was completed and approved, and she returned to the shelter to make him the newest member of her family. Fuzzball went to a new home to meet his new family sporting a new name….Scar.

Oreo

Febuary 1, 2019 –  Alvina and Oreo were adopted today. The home of their new “parents” was lonely without a cat, so they came to the shelter to choose a new family member or, in this case, members. About a year ago, their daughter adopted a cat from HSLC, but she took him with her when she moved out of the home. And, their cat of 19 years had passed, so they needed to find another cat to love. Both Alvina and Oreo were happy to be that cat. So, today, Oreo and Allie went with their new “parents” to their forever home.

Precious

Febuary 1, 2019 –  Precious, a cat who is very selective in her choice of companions, met her person Friday. She allowed cuddling, laid with her paw on her person’s foot, and just generally made it known that she, indeed, approved of this person. Today, her new “mother” came to take her home. Precious settled in her arms and allowed her to put her into the carrier. So, off they went with a new name, Prissy, and a forever home.

Beauty

Febuary 10, 2019 – Beauty was adopted today. He will be going to college with a young lady who is studying to be a nurse, and he will spend his non-college-going days with her, her parents, and a dog who was also a rescue. Beauty, now named Figaro, was calm, cool, and collected as he sat on his new “mom’s” lap waiting to be placed in a carrier to go to his forever home. He seemed to be very content, and so did she.

Lilly

Febuary 23, 2019 –  Waiting at the shelter for it to open at 10 on Saturday was Lilly’s new “dad”. He and his wife had recently lost a dog, and they were more than ready to add another dog to their household. A few days before, he came to the shelter to find a dog to take home. Then he brought their dog to meet Lilly. They were fine together, so Lilly was the one to make their home complete. A few hours after Lilly went to her forever home, he called the shelter to tell us that Lilly was playing in the back yard with her toy, and that she and the other dog were great!

Pongo

January 14, 2019 –  On Saturday a ten year old young lady and her mother came to the shelter to make a final decision regarding a cat. They had visited before, and she had chosen a couple of cats, but today was the time to make a final choice. Pongo was the chosen one! Today, Monday, she and her grandfather (mom was working in Bloomington) came after school to give Pongo a forever home. Pongo was a late Christmas present, and she thinks he is well worth the wait.

Raven

January 17, 2019 – This evening Raven, one of the beautiful black kittens, went home with an eight year old young lady who was very quiet throughout the whole adoption procedure. But she did agree that Raven was a good name, and the kitten was going to keep her name in her forever home. Raven is the only pet in the home, so she will be busy entertaining her young lady and her baby brother.

Grayson

January 26, 2019 – On this very cold day, a young couple came to the shelter to take their new family member home. They had come looking for the right kitten, and Greyson made sure they noticed him. He told them he was the one they needed, and they wisely listened. So, today was the big day. Papers were signed, microchip was checked, lots of time was spent nuzzling faces, and Greyson was ready to go home. Cold outside, but warmth and cheer followed Greyson to his forever home.

Alvina

Febuary 1, 2019 – Alvina and Oreo were adopted today. The home of their new “parents” was lonely without a cat, so they came to the shelter to choose a new family member or, in this case, members. About a year ago, their daughter adopted a cat from HSLC, but she took him with her when she moved out of the home. And, their cat of 19 years had passed, so they needed to find another cat to love. Both Alvina and Oreo were happy to be that cat. So, today, Oreo and Allie went with their new “parents” to their forever home.

Rocky

January 11, 2019 – One day a short time ago a man and his daughter came to meet Rocky. There was an immediate attraction. The dog liked them, and they liked the dog. Rocky was especially good with the daughter. After a short wait, they brought their dog to meet Rocky. The meeting was not an immediate “like” session, but it was not bad either. They really wanted to make Rocky part of their family. So, today, Rocky went home with his new “dad” to meet his new “mother” and play with the young lady in his forever home family.

ShoJo

January 11, 2019 – A couple has been keeping a watchful eye on HSLC’s website looking for a small dog. They have been without a dog for too long, and they were ready to adopt. When ShoJo appeared, they came in to meet her and were immediately ready to make her part of their family. And, ShoJo was ready to go home with them. Lots of cuddling and loving, then an application was made. Today ShoJo became part of their family as she rode home in style sitting on her new “dad’s” lap while “mom” drove them away to her forever home.

Paploo

January 12, 2019 –  Paploo got an early Christmas present….a new home. He met his new four year old big “brother” (over 100 pounds) before the application was completed, and they got along very well…. tails wagged, lots of sniffing, and tentative playing. He also has an eight-year old young lady to play with. She knew they might get a new dog, but she was not home when the call came, and her mother chose to surprise her today when she got home from school. She also liked the name Paploo, so he got a new family but kept his old name. The mother said the family had been “stalking” Paploo for some time….good stalking which resulted in a forever home.

Whisper

January 12, 2019 – Yesterday was a young teenage girl’s birthday. Today she got a special present…..a cat, Whisper. She had chosen Whisper on Friday, so the present was not a surprise, but it was a really good day-after-birthday. After the adoption was complete, she went into the room and got her cat who cuddled right into her arms like he really belonged there. Whisper’s forever home has two dogs, but that should not be much of an adjustment because he was raised with dogs in his foster family. So, a great day for every human and animal involved.

Feather

January 5, 2019 –  A family came to the shelter seeking a kitten to fill the empty space in their home. After spending time in the kitten room with all of the kittens and time with some of them separately, they decided to adopt Feather and Solange. At home the father and daughter decided that Marisol and Solange who were littermates should not be separated. So, the day before the adoption was to take place, the father called and asked that Marisol be added to the kittens they were adopting. It was to be a secret. And it was! So, today, a family who had not had kittens for years went home with three of them! Marisol, Solange, and Feather have a forever home.

Elsa

January 8, 2019 – A family with one kitten talked for a while about adopting another kitten. They wanted to wait until the college student was home, so today was a perfect time. He came to the shelter along with Mom and two younger children to take Elsa (the bobtail kitten) home. A very excited young boy and girl could hardly wait for all of the papers to be signed. Finally, all of the paperwork was done and Mom and all of the children happily went with Elsa to begin life in her forever home.

Miss Jackie

December 22, 2018 –  Christmas was getting closer and closer and still no home for Miss Jackie. But, her “Santa” arrived today to give her a wonderful present….a new home. A few days ago, a retired teacher, who was the proud “mother” of a beagle who recently died, came to visit the shelter. Miss Jackie was just what she wanted. Her mother, also a retired teacher, fell in love with her too. So, today, two very excited ladies took Miss Jackie to her forever home. Miss Jackie will be well cared for and deeply loved! Couldn’t ask for more.

Tobi

January 2, 2019 – Tobi, one of the youngest kittens in the shelter went to her forever home today. Her new family consists of three children; one a teenager, one a six year old, and an eleven year old daughter who got Tobi as a late Christmas present. In addition, there is another dog and a cat in the house. Tobi, now named Skye, went home sporting a new collar with a fancy flower on it.

Miracle

January 5, 2019 – Today the kitten Miracle was adopted. One of the young men volunteers in the cat area decided Miracle was the cat he wanted to take home. But, he was in the process of moving to Colorado for a new job. So, after getting permission to have a cat from his Colorado landlord, he contacted HSLC and arranged for his girlfriend to adopt the cat in his name. Miracle (now named Singe) will stay in Lincoln for a little while, take time to get acquainted with the other cat in the family, and then move to Colorado where he will get reacquainted with his new “dad”.

Sully

January 5, 2019 – Sully spent a week in a foster home, and today that foster home became his forever home. He and the two other dogs in the house are becoming a family, and he and his new “parents” had already bonded. Sully is a big, active, loving dog who deserves the best life can offer. His beginning life was a little rocky, but now he has a wonderful home and people who love him. We wish Sully and his new family the very best!
