Dear THS,

Three year update! We adopted Watson form THS in 2013. He turned 8 this year and the white is really starting to show on his face! We like to think this makes him look wise, but really it just draws more attention to the snot that is always on his nose. He is such an amazing dog, and makes the funniest grumbling noises when he wants something. Adopting Watson has really enriched our lives and it was the best decision we ever made 3 years ago. I hope you enjoy the pictures of Watson and his buddies!

Professor Bun Bun

Professor Bun Bun

October 17, 2016

When my 10 year old Holland Lop lost her companion, I turned to the Toronto Humane Society in search of a new addition to my little fur family. I came across Professor Bun Bun on the website and was instantly drawn to him and his cute pudgy face.

Professor Bun Bun is the most outgoing and happy bunny I have ever met. I have had many bunnies in my lifetime but I have never come across such a big bunny that loves to binky and run and climb as much as Professor. My rabbit Cinnamon, although she was on her best behavior during the “meet and greet” had some adjustment issues once she realized Bun Bun was here to stay. She did NOT feel the same way I did about Professor Bun Bun at first, there were many nips and disagreements as to who was going to be the top bun. It was a challenge, I must say, to bring these two together. After about 3 months, and almost giving up and coming to terms that they would maybe just be forever neighbours, things started to look up for Professor and Cinnamon.

Today they are great friends, cuddling together and grooming and enjoying free range of the house- cage free. Professor has also inspired Cinnamon to be a little more outgoing when it comes to exploring the house. I’m looking forward to many happy years with Professor teaching us to be happy no matter what life throws at us.

Thank you,

Amanda King.

I thought you might like to know that Clover (or Happy, as I have renamed him) is doing very well. Everyone who meets him shares the opinion that he is the most adorable thing ever. He is very playful and friendly with other animals and people. He has quickly become my best friend and I cannot imagine life without him. I have attached some pictures in case you guys might want to use them for your posters or whatnot. This is definitely a success story as this lovely kitty has found the right home.

Hi THS,

This is Arya (formerly Stella). We adopted her about a year ago, and we feel so lucky to have found her. She wasn’t like the other kittens. She wasn’t climbing the walls of her enclosure, yelling for attention. She was sitting quietly, contemplating the world. We knew immediately she was the cat for us.

She was a bit shy when we first brought her home. It took her a few days to really get comfortable even leaving her carrier, let alone exploring. Slowly but surely, she came out of her shell. She’s still a little shy when strangers come to visit, but with us is so affectionate and gentle. She loves cuddling, petting, brushing, and can never get enough attention.

She’s also quite well mannered. She doesn’t jump on tables or knock anything off of them (accidentally or otherwise). She scratches at her post, and will sit and wait for her dish to be filled before digging in (after thanking us with a big meow, of course). We taught her none of these behaviours. It’s just who she is.

Thank you, THS, from us, and from Arya, for making us a family.

Hi!

My name is Kaity and a little less than 2 years ago my partner Mike and I were heartbroken after the loss of our elderly rescue cat, Pickles. Mike, myself and our other cat Hazel decided soon after she passed that we had the space in both our home and our hearts to bring a new cat in to our lives.

I saw the picture of little Thorin on your website and he looked so scared and timid but there was something about him that I was drawn to. We went to the shelter and after looking at every cat you had at the time we finally decided that infact Thorin was the right choice for us.

Within hours of us bringing him home we knew that it was the best thing we ever did. Thorin woke up his new daddy the next morning sitting on his chest and licking his chin! Thorin is so loving and sweet. Always wanting snuggles and curling up with us. Whenever one of us bends down to kiss the tip of his nose, he returns the kiss by pushing his nose up to us!

His adoptive sister and him have really bonded and are very good friends. Although they do fight sometimes like any siblings do!

Nearly 2 years later we wake up every morning to a happy, healthy loving little boy who is the light of our life!

Thank you to everyone who helped us with the adoption of our baby!

Love,

Kaity & Mike

In July we decided to add to our family and went to the Toronto Humane Society. There we saw a little kitten named, Oakley and instantly fell in love with him. We changed his name to Wyatt - my daughter thought he looked more like a Wyatt smile

He has settled in very nicely and makes us laugh everyday. Wyatt is such an affectionate kitten and loves to snuggle and give us cat kisses.

We want to thank everyone at the Toronto Humane Society for allowing us to give Wyatt his forever home. We love him so much, and can’t imagine our lives without him.

We have enclosed a few pictures of Wyatt.

Sincerely,

Lynne Di Bacco and Family

Tinker, formerly Jim, joined our family on Thursday August 11, 2016. He quickly adapted to his new environment and is comfortable exploring new hiding places. Tinker is a sweet, gentle, friendly rabbit who loves eating hay and home grown garden greens. He often joins us on the couch for a snuggle and head rubs. Having Tinker around adds so much pleasure to our day. We are impressed with the staff, volunteers and service at Toronto Humane Society. Neil, in small pets, made the adoption process seamless. We hope to enjoy Tinker’s company for many years.

Good afternoon to all the THS staff!

I want to update you about my cat Sylvester that I’ve adopted from the Toronto Humane Society three years ago when he was only six years old. His former name was Dolce Vita, but currently, his name is Sylvester.

Last Saturday, I did celebrated Sylvester’s 9th birthday. How time flies by so fast because I can’t believe my cat is already nine years old this year. Sylvester’s date of birth is September 17, 2007.

Because I love my cat so much with all of my heart and to pieces, I’ve decided to celebrate my cat’s birthday by purchasing him a chocolate cake, putting a big number 9 on top of the cake, and playing a birthday song from YouTube.

Yours truly,

Daisy


Stella and Triggs

Stella and Triggs

September 20, 2016

Four years ago I lost my best friend, our family yellow lab, Henry. Thinking I could never love another dog again I came across my Stella (formally Rossi) on the THS website a year after Henry’s passing. Not knowing how vastly my life would be changed I went to go see her. The next day she was mine.

Reluctant as first, Stella was uneasy of her new environment. She had a few surgeries before I was able to take her home as she had only formally known a world of neglect. Stella came home terrified of not only me but humans in general. She was missing half her teeth, patches of fur and scared of her new environment. At the time, my new fur-legged daughter hid in my closet for two weeks, not even coming out to see me. I would bring her food, which she would hid throughout the apartment, only to assume she would eat it later. Once my Stella became comfortable, I quickly learned she was secretly a little diva who desired numerous cuddle sessions and daily belly rubs. We were two peas in a pod, where I went Stella went, she quickly became my shadow.

The following year we were joined by my partner, whom at the time had never experienced the unconditional love of a four legged furbaby. Soon after my partner joined our family we decided to adopt a second furbaby, Triggs (Formally Ferris). Full of life, and with energy that never seems to quit, Triggs bounced into our lives. Complete opposites Stella seemed to merely tolerate her brother upon his arrival. While at times Stella still seems to only tolerate her brother, once night falls the two can be seen snuggling side by side.

On behalf of my partner and I, I cannot thank the THS enough for taking care of our two four-legged children for us. Our lives are forever enriched for the unconditional love and joy we receive from both Stella and Triggs.
