Success Stories

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

As promised, here´s our beloved Olaf. I couldn´t imagine not having this guy in my life. I hope you know how much we appreciate and love him.


We´ve had Rux for about 6 weeks now, and he´s fit in so well with our family that it feels like we´ve had him for years!

He is a great protector and friend to the kids, always making sure they´re behaving and safe, although he likes to make messes with my son whenever he gets a chance. He loves to make friends with everyone and he´s great at snuggles.

We could not have asked for a more well behaved, gentle and fun loving pup!

Update on Sadie! Here are some pictures of Sadie from our first two-ish weeks together. She's very sweet, and very intuitive. We've been averaging about 15,000 steps a day since we joined forces, and just begun going to the dog park for an hour or two before and after work. She does very well with other dogs. She sleeps soundly through the night in the bed, and is warming up to her crate. She's been shadowing me around the house since day 1, which is exactly what I had hoped for!

She did well at her first vet check up and was a little skiddish getting her remaining shot, but quickly forgot about it.

Dear staff and volunteers at the Niagara Falls Humane Society,

Thank you for all your assistance and support during our adoption process with Teigan.

We found all of you extremely helpful and supportive while we were trying to figure out if we were the right family for her and if she fit with us.

So far, I think it's safe to say we are all over the moon with happiness over her arrival. She is gentle, friendly and so many in our neighborhood have mentioned to us how beautiful she is.

We are attaching a few pictures so you can see how she is adjusting to her new home. We can only hope she is as happy with us as we are with her.

We are lining up dog training school soon and will be registering her with the City of Hamilton in the next couple of days.

Thank you again for all your support and thank you for all you do. Should our travels take us to Niagara Falls again, we will be sure to drop by.


Chad, Rae-Lynne, Nelson, Salvador, Dia and Teigan Aramburo

P.S. The children are debating names for Teigan. Although they like her name, they are wondering if another name might suit her better (at least in their opinion). We'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the follow up call last week about Leroy.
I´ve officially changed his name to Henry as that´s what it was before and he seems to understand.

He has settled in quite nicely.
In these pictures you´ll see him relaxing in his fav chair which he loves. Sitting by the window looking outside, which he is obsessed with. It´s at the point where the sound of the door unlocking, Henry comes running.

I´m happy he loves it here and I have no issues :)
