Tales of Happily Forever After
A DOG NAMED CAMI
ENTERED MHC November 2017
ADOPTED February 2020
Cami arrived at the Adoption Center in November 2017. She is a beautiful dog with soulful golden brown eyes -- we thought she would be adopted very quickly. It took 2 years for her to find her forever home.
After a few failed trial adoptions over many months, Cami was starting to get anxious in her kennel. But our staff persisted and patiently continued to work with Cami, easing her anxiety and slowly getting her to open herself up to people a little more everyday.
Their efforts paid off when one day, Jordan and Kirk walked in looking for a dog to adopt. It took a lot of time patience, hard work and a bit of faith, but it was all worth it to see Cami finally end up in a home that is perfect for her, where she is well taken care of and spoiled!
Today, Cami lives happily ever after with her new family. They recently adopted another dog, Jack, also from MHC!
From Cami's Adopter:
When my husband and I first met Cami, she was a shy, scared dog trying to hide in the corner of her kennel. We knew we wanted to work with her when the workers told us of the many issues that she had and the few adoption attempts that fell through. We knew that we could help this dog.
We spent almost two weeks going into the shelter everyday to help her get to know us better. After a lot of treats, and a home visit, it was decided that she was ready for a trial adoption.
We were given a month trial to see how she would do in our home and with our family. It was an exciting time for us, but it didn't come without its challenges. We worked hard potty training her, making sure she didn't escape over the back fence, and getting her to trust my husband. But by the end of the first week we knew that Cami was meant to be a part of our family.
It has been 4 months since we adopted Cami, and she has become a completely different dog than the one that we first met. She loves meeting new people, she loves to cuddle and have belly scratches, and she loves exploring the world around her, whether it's going on walks around the neighborhood or going for car rides to new places.
My husband and I are so thankful that Midland Humane Coalition was able to keep and work with Cami while she was there. They were able to get her to a point that allowed her to be adoptable, and to bridge the time that she arrived at the shelter to the time that she arrived to our family. All she needed was a chance, and they were able to provide that for her, and we thank God everyday that she is now a part of our family.

MOMMA JEN, ODIE & PERCY
In July 2020, momma Jen and her newborn puppies, Odie and Percy found themselves in a grave situation. They were dumped. Abandoned. Homeless. Struggling to survive.
They had been dumped like trash near somebody's property. But the homeowner did not want these dogs hanging out at his property and wanted nothing to do with them, so he was planning to abandon them somewhere else -- on a roadside far away.
Thankfully, we were able to stop that from happening.
We took them under our wing, knowing that without our help these vulnerable dogs would have perished in the wild. They were in desperate need of vet care, sustenance and shelter.
With the help of a foster, the puppies grew stronger, healthier and bigger everyday. After their vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries, they were ready for adoption! They didn't have to look far to find their new home -- their foster family fell in love with them and ended up being their forever home.
As for momma Jen, she can rest easy now that her babies are safe and sound. She, too, has found her forever home and is living her dreams happily ever after!
