Hello to the staff at TCHS!
Remember Jackson, the beautiful little black collie mix? Rambunctious, loud, and insane? I'm happy to report that he has been thriving in his forever home with two people who love him more than the world itself!
Jackson came to us through TCHS toward the end of March, given up by his original family because of allergies. I took one look at him and knew that I was meant to take him home. Since then, he has grown so much (he's huge!), has learned a hefty amount, and has been the greatest joy in our lives. He is our shadow, constantly interrupting his own sleep to follow us around the house. He plays a strange version of fetch/tug-o-war, and his favorite snack is carrots! We just spent last weekend in northern Wisconsin at a cabin on a lake where Jackson learned to swim, which he previously had been too scared to do! We were so proud of him.
All in all, he really is just a character and we love him for everything he's given us since his adoption. We could not be happier and we thank TCHS a million times over for bringing Jackson into our lives.

I adopted Bruno (originally Butler) early last November. I was a senior going to SCSU and was looking for a companion to come home to after work and classes. Bruno was the last kitten in his litter and was attached to me from the start. Ever since he has been my shadow, my best friend, and my baby boy! Bruno has been energetic, playful, and mischievous since the day I brought him home and that is exactly what I needed in a cat! He loves to fetch, chase his tail, and drink out of the toilet! We joke that he is half dog!
I am SO thankful for the TCHS for all that they do for so many animals, especially for giving me Bruno! He is the light of my life!
Just wanted to send an update on our beautiful girls. We adopted Emma (formerly Alma) last December and then Phoebe (formerly Nilla) in April. As you can see by the pictures, they are very bonded and really enjoy spending time with one another. They have been a perfect fit for our household and we are enjoying sharing our lives with them. Emma loves to explore everything, so her nickname is "Emma the Explorer". Phoebe still has a big purr box and enjoys nothing more than curling up on a lap and showing off her LOUD purr :) Thanks to all of you for your wonderful care provided to the animals while they wait to find their forever home. We are truly blessed to have Emma and Phoebe in our lives!

Just wanted to send you an update on Butterscotch. We have renamed our
little bundle of energy Izadora. Her curiosity, and what we refer to as her
ADHD personality, keep us laughing and on our toes. Our other cat who is
borderline overweight has benefited from the addition to the family as well.
Izzie really brings out her playfulness.
Izadora has fit into our home beautifully and we would like to thank you for
the opportunity to love her.
We also want to thank the staff and volunteers who are so helpful and
professional, it made the whole experience a pleasant one.

I am happy to report that Sassy is enjoying her new home and has found great
joy being the youngest girl in our family. Enclosed is a picture of the
"girls". Sassy enjoys walks and rides in the car...whether it is to the store to
Grandma's farm. She loves to play tug and to chase tennis balls or
baseballs: however, she is still scared of toys that squeak! Her girls take
her for walks everyday and there is a neighbor dog Tanner that she loves to
visit. She spent Christmas in Duluth running and playing in the snow! We
are so happy Sassy has joined our family! Attached is a picture of Sassy
and her girls!
