EVERYONE loves a super successful adoption story, don’t they? That is what we at Voiceless-MI call one of our “Happy Tails”. Lots of wagging tails (dog & cat) and happy families. This page shows you why we do what we do.
I was checking out Face Book when I came across a hilarious photo of a “grumpy” looking kitty. For the rest of the day and the following I couldn’t get her out of my mind. We had not had cats in some years and our son had been asking for one since he was about two. After some negotiations, my husband I gave his blessing to look at adopting “Chinney”. The following night we went and met her, to the surprise of our son. Though she has a new name not to draw more attention to her larger chin. Ginny begs with our three dogs when I am cooking. She plays and follows our son around and if you can not find her, she’s on his bed. We are all so happy to have her as part of our family and in our lives. ~The Anthonys
“Jimmy has really helped fill the void left when we lost our last dog last year. He has become the neighborhood favorite and we are so happy to have him! He has become a playmate for Hazel and the kids and he has brought a great deal of joy to everyone in our household. In short, Jimmy brings a smile to the faces of everyone he meets!” -The Gatzek Family, Plymouth, MI
Just wanted to update you on “Mr. Doodles” (aka The Dude). He’s become the “star” of our family, and we couldn’t love him any more if we tried. He & Sophie are the best of friends and although we had to be Dobie down in Novemeber, I attached a picture to show you that he and the Dude DID become friends while he was still alive. Thanks again for finding our baby and rest assured that he is loved and cared for beyond his wildest dreams! -Michael, Dawn & Logan Fisher
Max is like a youngster again. He is really the best dog I’ve ever had. He is quite literally, PERFECT! He has enriched our lives so much! -Dawn Hecker
“Our 6 year old can’t get enough of her new “sisters” Carly and Cece! And it’s so wonderful to come home to their wagging tails at the end of the day!” -The O’Brien-Lucas Family
“Thank you for introducing us to Bishop and allowing us to adopt him!! Here he is with his new brother Albert 🙂 We hope he will soon forget about his horrible past, the house fire experience and only remember his good times now and in the future. Thank you so much!” -Peggy Wilson
Adopting Hooch brought so much happiness into my life. Having a dog makes a house a home. There’s no greater feeling than coming home from work and being greeted by Hooch with a full circle tail wag. Hooch loves to cuddle and play, and makes friends with everyone who walks through the door. He wakes me up in the morning with a cold, wet nose, and let me tell you – there’s no better way to start the day. Thanks, Clare
CHRISTMAS 2011: “I just thought I would forward you a picture of Moose that we took on Christmas day while he was waitin’ for Santa 🙂 What a wonderful Christmas present…the gift of Moose! He has really filled a void in our hearts, enriched our lives and we love him so much!”
The story of Dudley Montgomery Worcestershire Wood the 3rd
2010 was a rough year for me as I lost both of my dogs. One to gastric torsion and one to general old age. In early 2011 I started getting e-mails from someone pestering me about adopting another dog. That got me looking at Petfinder where I found Dudley. Turns out that same someone’s rescue organization had him. We fell in love with his pictures and the video was too much to resist. So after some pestering of my own we took him home.
He’s a very funny dog. You wake up and he’s peering over the side of the bed. I keep the treats in another room and when he thinks he deserves one he stands with his nose against the door or the cabinet they are in. He’s quite talkative and barks when he’s very happy or not very happy. And when he has an itch he runs up and down the side of the bed or couch rubbing up against it, occasionally falling over on the hardwood floor when he loses his footing. He’s got a huge personality and has been great fun.- Russ Wood, May 2011
amazed by the gigantic creature that now resides in the home 🙂 She listens so well – I’m just amazed at what a wonderful dog she is. We are so happy to have her as a member of our family!” -The Belloli Family
