“My mother and I would like to thank everyone at the shelter. We had such a great experience today when we came to adopt Milo. He’s settling in nicely and has made himself at home. Thank you again for everything!”

– Linda N. & Kelley M.


“Our new cat, Edgar, has changed our lives and brought so much joy and warmth into our home. Life surely would not be the same without him. He is the puzzle piece that makes our lives whole.”

– Allison, Ben, & Edgar


“Our new adopted dog, Abby, was the answer to a prayer! She’s been the best little girl. We are madly in love with her! She has adjusted so well and she’s always smiling. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to adopt a pet. Your staff was so helpful and kind to us. Thank you for all you do for these animals!”

– Mike & Ellen K.


“As a nurse who works three days a week, having our dog Kiba with me on my days off has drastically changed my life. We started looking for a dog because I was very lonely during the day. Now I’ve met more of the neighbors in 3 weeks than in the last year. The adoption packet we received has been such a blessing! We used it to crate train Kiba and it’s been our go-to reference in making our routine with him. We are so happy with our decision to adopt and Kiba has been the perfect addition to our family. Thank you for bringing him into our lives!”

– Christina S.


“Our decision to adopt Callie may have been the most spontaneous thing we have done, but we couldn’t be happier with our rare and precious find. She is the greeter at our door when we come in from work every evening (without fail), our cuddle buddy on the couch when we watch a TV show, our desk companion when there’s more work to do after work, and our wild hunter in the late evenings when the lioness instincts come out to play. Thank you so much for everything that you and the Humane Society do. Callie has been such a blessing in our lives and we are so happy to have her as a new part of our small family.”

Victoria & Richard Huling


“We are very grateful for the adoption experience we had and for all of the advice given to us about introducing our new cat, Buc, to our resident kitties. We feel very lucky that Buc’s first two adoptions did not work out. He was meant to be with us. Thank you for all that you do for animals at the Humane Society of Harford County.”
– Jess


“Noodle (black and white dog above) has settled in so well to our home environment. She’s had her big sister, Roxy, around to show her the ropes, and is absolutely thriving with our family. It’s hard to believe that we only adopted her one month ago, because she’s already such a fixture in our home. Thank you all for the hard work that you did to find us our perfect match, and for all of the hard work that you continue to do for every animal in your care.”
