Hello Everyone! We brought this sweet boy home with us yesterday from NOAH and he fell right into our routine. Cathy helped us yesterday and let the girls cuddle and play with him. She was wonderful! Our little girls are so in love with him. We have already gone on 3 walks since yesterday and he has received endless cuddles and kisses and brought a lot of giggles out of our kiddos. He went right inside his crate at bedtime and didn't make a peep. We are so blessed to have found him and thankful for Cathy and all of her help! Our 3 year old named him "Chase" and that's just what they do :-) Thank you again everyone!

Hello NOAH staff,
When my sister and I first came into NOAH we came just to look and see what was available for adoption. That's when I saw Suzy...a small and quiet pup with a face only a mother could love. (And I do love her beyond words!!) I always call her my little gremlin (see attached photos). She has been amazing and is adjusting great...spoiled more than ever!! Thank you again to all the amazing staff at NOAH! You all do an amazing job and made it a great experience bringing my new baby home.

Spock and McCoy

Just wanted to let you know the boys have settled in great. They like the dogs and the dogs like them.  The cat is still warming up…he wishes they would slow down so he could get a better look and smell.

My family and I came into look at all of the animals earlier this week. We crossed paths with Suki and felt very drawn to her, my son especially. We decided to take that chance and commit to her. We wanted to share her experience thus far. She made herself at home within the first hour. She found her favorite spot on the sofa, which is on top of the sofa, and later that night she sampled each bed like Goldilocks...with my son's as her favorite. She's blended into our family seamlessly and is such a good girl with my small children. She loves cuddling on the sofa, which is my favorite part and she's very smart, which is my husband’s favorite part. Everyone in the family has benefited from her, and by the way her tail wags, I think she's happy to be here. We just wanted to thank you and let you know that she's doing great and we look forward to a very long, healthy and happy future with our new girl.

Finn, Juliette, & Donna

Description: C:\Documents and Settings\lanik\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\RNZO3JTK\Kitties n Finn.pngWe adopted our 11 month old cat Finn when he was 6 months old from NOAH. He is super sweet and extremely lovable. He gets along with everyone in our house even our dogs. Yes, they play together.
But, as summer started progressing the dogs began going outside more and we noticed Finn needed a playmate inside as well.  So we went back to NOAH for 4 weeks looking for a perfect match. Not only did we find one, but we found two matches. Yep, Juliette (now Callie) and Donna (now Baby-the thumb sucker) have won Finn’s heart as well as ours. We brought them home and Finn has taken them under his wing. Now, he is a male but thinks he is their mommy. He cleans them, loves them, plays with them, sleeps with them and even stands back and makes sure they do not get into trouble. It’s been perfect for the last three months and I am sure it will be for the rest of their lives. Thank you for making our family totally complete.

Hi There,
I just wanted to send you a picture of the puppy we adopted from your shelter in April. We adopted one of the German Shepherd puppies that was in a litter that was found in the woods and was very under socialized. She is doing great and is so social! Her name is now Leba. (German for Love).  Here is an updated photo of her. She is such a joy and we are so happy and so is Leba! :) Thank you!
