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.


Katydid

September 16, 2018 –  A few days ago a man came to the shelter looking for a cat. His cat had lived 17 years, and he was ready to make a home for a shelter animal. He went into the kitten room, played, cuddled, and found the kitten he wanted to share his life. Katydid was just fine with that idea, and today she officially became part of his family. His granddaughter was in charge of naming, so she chose to just shorten it to Katy. He hopes Katy likes to ride so he can take her with him when he travels. As she left the Shelter she seemed to be enjoying the ride.

Buster

September 9, 2018 –  At ten o’clock last Sunday morning, Buster and Freckles, HSLC’s boxer/heeler puppies, new “parents” arrived at the shelter to make their adoption official. Buster (now Knox) and Freckles (now Conner) went to their forever home to meet two other dogs already living there. They will have lots of fenced room in which to run and play. And, besides having the other two dogs as playmates, there is a six year old and a three year old to entertain. By now, they are probably much cleaner and on their way to becoming a part of a wonderful family.

Sawyer

September 12, 2018 – Friends of a young couple who live near St. Louis told them about the boxer/heeler puppies in the Humane Society of Logan County shelter. The friends made several visits, took pictures, shared information. An application was made, delivered, approved, and Wednesday night the couple became a trio. Sawyer, three months old, joined their family. Smiles all around as Sawyer, waving good-bye, wiggling happily to his forever home.

Katie

September 14, 2018 – At noon on Friday, Katie was adopted by a young lady who has no other pets, but Katie will not be an only child. She will share her new home with other cats who belong to a roommate. So, the active life she lived in the kitten room may slow down a little, but there will still be playmates to keep her happy. Katie’s new “mother” spent a good deal of time playing with the kittens and deciding which one to take to her forever home.

Christine

September 2, 2018 –  For a long time, a young lady came to the shelter to visit Christine. She was moving to a new apartment and needed time to make the move, get settled, and gather together enough money for a pet deposit and an adoption. She and Christine would cuddle and get acquainted and wait until it all came together and Christine went to her forever home.

Meeko

September 2, 2018 –  Earlier in the week a family came to visit Meeko. They had known him as a puppy, and they wanted to make him part of their family. It was obvious that Meeko remembered them, and he responded as if he was meeting a long lost friend. After playing and getting reacquainted, an application was made. A day later, Meeko (again called Mickey), went to his forever home. A couple of phone calls have ensued, and Meeko has become part of the family…..going for car rides, playing with the children, and getting the love he deserves.

Armani

September 2, 2018 –  When the cat Armani came to the shelter in January, 2018 from a downstate shelter, he was ill and needed surgery. He was put in the care of a foster until he had surgery, and he stayed in that home after he was healed. Armani had adopted the family as his. He loved the other cats, the dogs, and the people in the home. Today Armani became an official member of that family. Murphy, as he is now known, is happy to know that his foster home is his forever home.

Max

September 9, 2018 –  Max, the black and white three year old cat who came to us from southern Illinois, was adopted today. Max’s life with HSLC was mainly lived in a foster home because he was so ill. But, with lots of care, he was ready to come to the shelter and to be adopted. He still must be on a special diet, but his new “mother” is willing to go to the expense of feeding him the special food he needs. His adoption has been on hold for a little while, but today Max found his forever home with the extra love and care he needs.

Jack & Yoda

August 26, 2018 – Jack, a five year old yorkie, and Yoda, a four year old chihuahua, had lived together most of their lives. When they came to the shelter, it was important that they be adopted into the same home. And, the right family came along to make that happen. The first time the family met them, there was an immediate connection. Then, the son came to visit. Another connection was made. So, the two dogs had found their forever home, and on Friday it was official. Two very happy dogs left the Shelter for the next stop on their adventure.

Joey

August 26, 2018 – Joey, a kitten who was scheduled to come in to the shelter on Friday, was a short term stay. A lady who said her home felt lonely without an animal, came to visit the kittens. She looked at the black kittens, and talked with the two foster mothers who were in the shelter weighing kittens. One of the fosters went to her home and brought the two kittens who were scheduled to come in the next day. The lady decided Joey should go home with her, and today (the Friday he was to enter the shelter) he went to his forever home.
