ICHS Success Stories
We have had hundreds of success stories here at I.C.H.S. Stories of lost pets finding a new loving forever home! On these pages we would like to share a few of these stories with you. If you have adopted a pet from I.C.H.S. and would like to share your story, please contact us.

Happy Tails Begin with us.........
.......tales such as Micah who lived most of his life alone in a home with an owner who was in and out and left him basically to fend for himself with very little care or socialization. Thanks to the hard work of one of our volunteers, who also fostered Micah for a time, he learned to trust people again and is now living the good life with the perfect family! Loved and cherished—because ICHS provided a safe haven and rehabilitation with no time limit for special needs animals like Micah!!

Sylvie_Success.jpgAnd how about a feline fairy tale come true!! Sylvie was an amazing cat that came to ICHS with a super loving attitude but a serious problem. While out fending for himself, someone decided to use him for target practice and shot him, damaging his front leg beyond repair. After expensive surgery to remove the leg, Sylvie was adopted out and is continuing to amaze his new family with his special character. All because ICHS believes in giving damaged animals the treatment and care they need to recover and go on to live healthy, happy lives.

Then there's the tale of Jingles, the big black and white lovebug who languished hopefully in the shelter kennel for almost 3 years—a victim of breed discrimination until he was found by the perfect adopters! Home at last because we look past outward appearances to the true beauty inside!

Bessie_Success.jpgAnd let's not forget about the tale of Bessie, the sweet grey cat who was overlooked by everyone for several years. This amazing cat was so wonderful that she even went on visits with the pet therapy team but never seemed to catch anyone's eye. Finally the perfect family found her and recognized just how special she is! Happy at last because we make sure that there is space for all as long as needed.

Last but certainly not least, dogs like Annie, who was here almost a year before finally finding her perfect forever home, keep coming through our doors and we are hard put to find the resources we need to ensure that she has a fair chance for a loving home.
