Happy Tales of Happy Tails!



May 13, 2013
We regret that the Happy Tails have not been updated in several months. There is a problem with the "blog" format in our website provider application. We are working on a new page.
Meanwhile, our adopters often send pictures and updates to our Facebook Page, and our monthly newsletter, Animal Harbor News, often includes stories of our adopted pets.


Azure (now Halia)

December 4, 2012
I adopted Azure last month, and I am happy to report that she is doing great. We have another shop kitty named Maui that the previous owner of Bubbles and Bows had adopted from your shelter a few years ago. Unfortunately, last year his blood-work showed that he was FIV positive, but he is otherwise a happy, healthy cat.

Maui had a buddy that I had rescued from my backyard named Funshine. She was a wonderful, sweet, loving kitty, and curiosity got the better of her and she didn't survive. Maui...

Update on Winkie

November 5, 2012
Here are a few of the pics of WINKIE in his furever home. He is soooo happy & we are too! He is full of energy, mischievousness, cuteness (he talks to us & the birds ALL the time), & TONS of LOVE! We were looking for another kitty after my 18 year old tortoiseshell SADIE died. We didn't think we'd want another because we didn't want to 'replace' her.....but after a few months we realized that her death left a longing in our hearts for the love from a wonderful cat.
We saw WINKIE'S pic on the i...

Adopted Shadow Friday. We are truly blessed to have found this lovely girl. She is amazing. Thank you Animal Harbor!
She has adapted well to her new life. She is VERY happy and so are we. Loves going on several walks everyday and exploring her big back yard. Her favorite pastime though is getting lots of love, especially belly, chest, and neck rubs. She is learning how to be a big sister to our other newly adopted rat terrier named Trixie. She is very gentle but for...

J.D. is a wonderful dog who is a Shepherd/ collie mix. When I first got J.D. he was very skittish and shy but after an hour he all of a sudden jumped on my couch and started licking my ear to death. The animal shelter said the reason he was given up was due to his jumping- can you believe that!!!! J.D. is a very smart dog and is very happy in his forever home. I'm very proud of my big, sweet, lovable, baby. He listens very well and has wonderful manners I could not ask for a b...

Charlie -- sent to Michigan on the Rescue Waggin'

April 13, 2012
Received April 13, 2012

My husband and I have been thinking about adopting a new dog for awhile -- we lost our Husky almost 3 years ago, and miss having a dog.

But we also have two small kids and a cat, and worried about finding an adult dog who could fit into the household without too much stress. Our Husky was an adult rescue, and we worked through several issues with him as a young adult, so we knew "adult" didn't necessarily mean "easy." We decided a puppy was probably the best way to go fo...
