Success Stories

If you would like to share your success story about an animal adopted from NFHS, please email Cathy at

We adopted Tessa from the NFHS on the 20th of December and we can not be more happy with her!
She was not responding to Tessa and we were not overly fond of the name so we changed it to Freya which she is somewhat responding to now. :D
We have taken so many pictures of her and our other dog Cricket and they just play and play and play all day!
I hope it is not too early to send pictures.
I also hope it is okay to send pictures of Freya and her sister Cricket.
Freya is such a sweet dog, we are so happy to welcome her into our house and could not be more pleased with how well she is adapting to her surroundings and her sibling.
Thank you very much for doing what you do to help these dogs, without you we would never have such a wonderful dog.

Hey guys,
Just wanted to share an update on sloth and his adorable picture. He's doing well and is very happy, thanks again for nursing him back to health so he could be adopted.


Dear Team at the NFHS;

Yesterday was Tyra´s first day in her new home. She seemed to settle in very well after the initial stress of getting her here. Tyra likes her catnip fish and enjoys chasing her toys. Wet food is a big success.

Thank you for looking after Tyra so well while she was housed at the shelter.

Best wishes to all for a healthy and happy New Year. Merry Christmas too!

Hi there!

We just wanted to send you an update on how Sully(Jack) is doing in his new home. Jack is living the dream! Every day we go on long adventures to the beach or through the woods and greet everyone we see. He loves children, adults and other dogs. He has good house manners and goes in his crate by himself to chew on his bone. He is showing his retriever side as he loves to fetch and retrieve the ball over and over again! He also dove into the lake and grabbed a stick that was out there, I can see summer is going to be a lot of fun with him around! He is such a great dog we feel really lucky to have found him. He is definitely an ambassador for pet adoption as everyone has been asking where they can find such a gorgeous furry gentleman. I tell them..adopt don't shop!

Check out the NFHS! name is Finnigan Mooney
( previously Darius) and I am so happy in my forever home
