We adopted Layla just after Christmas, 2004, when she was just about 3 months old. She grew up with our kids, welcomed three other dogs from the shelter, and had a great life together for almost 14 years. She died in her sleep last week, after declining over the past few months, but always happy and sassy. We will miss her and our lives were enriched for having her in our family.
I thought I would send a little update on Midna and Ayla (formerly Vanessa and Marie). We adopted them in early October. They are almost always together as you can see! Midna is patient, sweet and loves belly rubs. Ayla is our little hunter and always comes to bed for cuddles. They have brought us so much happiness!

Thank you so much for letting me adopt these beautiful kittens. They are affectionate and adorable. I am so grateful!
I wanted to send you a picture of me with Mimi (now Pouncy) that we adopted from you last fall. She was having a bit of trouble finding the right home because she needs a quiet, calm and patient family – and she has one with us! She is purrrfect, and we are so happy and in love with her!
The pic was taken just now, as she lounges in the warm sunroom.
I adopted Ramses in January 2012 when he was a young and skinny pup. Since then Ramses has filled out with pure muscle and is a healthy guy. The two pictures are about five years apart and I’ve wondered if he secretly lifts weights or is sneaking food (protein shakes? Just kidding) when I’m not at home.
Ramses loves to go hiking and play tug with his toys, however it must be a toy that he can destroy. As big as he’s gotten and as much as he resembles a muscle hamster, he is very gentle with all kinds of people. He has a particular fondness for all of the women in his life. Ramses is a loving member of my family and I am thankful we enrich each other’s lives.
Quick story on his name: when he was first brought in to your shelter, no one knew what breed/mix he was. Someone thought he might be part Ibizan Hound, hence the name Ramses. Shortly after I adopted him I learned from his veterinarian that he has some Bull Terrier in him. He’s had a regal demeanor from the first time I saw him and besides, how often do you meet someone named after a pharaoh?
Dear Montgomery County Humane Society:
We adopted Aspen in April 2017. He’s a fluffy Malamute/Husky mix who is such a goofy friend to our rescue GSD Layla. They love to run and play hard, like big dogs do, and then curl up to snooze in our bed. After some training not to chew remotes or pillows, he’s becoming a gentleman-pup and will turn 2 years old in June. He loves the snow and all kinds of snacks and treats – even grandma Rhonda makes him homemade chicken treats.Thank you MCHS! We’ll see you at Paws in the Park!
Dave & Linette
I just wanted to provide an update on Brooklyn (we renamed him Koba). He and Nala have become the best of friends spending their days chasing each other around the house and cuddling in the evenings! He is the perfect addition to our family and despite the pantry being his favorite room in the house and Nala’s occasional “what did you do to me?” facial expressions … we couldn’t be happier! Thank you for your help finding our new family member.
Enjoy your Friday,
Sorry it’s been so long, but we wanted to give a little update on our furry son! Nori (Formerly known as Roscoe) was adopted December 9th during your Christmas adoption special!
Nori is now a big city kitty and living with us in Manhattan. Nori absolutely loves watching the cars and the people go by from the safety of his perch on the windowsills. He has really come out of his shell and loves to snuggle up with us on the couch and always wants to be near us, whether in our laps or on the ground beside our feet. He’s always at the door to greet us when we come home and has the loudest meow. He loves belly rubs and kneading us before bedtime! We are so happy to love him and that he is ours!

I adopted Petey and Toni about a month ago. I have renamed them Tigger (Mr. Tigs) and Luna. They are doing well and starting to come out of their shells. Tigger more than Luna so far. Here are pictures of them. Luna is harder to get than Tigger because he will come closer to me right now.
