Happy Tails Adoption Stories

While an animal is in our care, our team of staff and volunteers have the opportunity to really get to know them, their personality and their likes and dislikes.
Nothing fills the hearts of our staff and volunteers more than seeing one of our furry friends.

We love receiving stories from Quincy Humane Society alumni, and we hope you enjoy some of our Happy Tails!

We love to hear how our alumni are doing!

Fritter, now  Pagan, hit the ground running once she was adopted and training started right away!
She knows “sit”, “stay” and “come” pretty well. Pagan is still working on going outside to potty.
Her favorite thing to do is take a nap!
Fritter was one of eight puppies from the “Doughnut Litter” who have found the best homes.
Happy Tails, Pagan!



Do you remember Tina the Turtle?
  The 12 year old cat that was looking for a second chance at love?
  She is thriving!
She has established a routine of naps, play, eating and using the litter box.
She has really made a great life with her new family.
  Happy Tails, Tina the Turtle!


Gunner,  is loving life with his new furry siblings, especially his furry feline friend pictured with him.
These two are the best of friends.
When not running around playing with his friends, enjoying the fresh air, you can find Gunner lounging around enjoying the good life.
Happy Tails, Gunner!


Do you remember the Shakespeare litter?
A litter of 6 pups that came in very undersocialized, scared and timid.
They didn’t know what a home was. Love from people was a strange concept.
Ophelia and Titania (now Tanya and Sophie) found their FURever home…together!
We knew Hamlet needed a break from the kennel and we reached out to see if the girls family would foster him and they said “YES!”
It turns out, Hamlet just so happened to be the missing piece to the family that they didn’t know they were missing.
Happy Tails to all THREE of these dogs!

Did you ever have the chance to meet Levi?
He wasn’t here all that long but we sure did fall in love with him during his stay with us!
Levi loves to go on walks and he just so happens
to be a great running buddy!
He is quite the spoiled little guy who gets lots of love.
Happy Tails, Levi!
