Over the years we have had many animals come through and find new homes. Here are a few of their stories.
LUNA: ADOPTED 2021
Luna is a gorgeous girl who found her Furever Home earlier this year.
Her mom sent us some lovely pictures yesterday and the following note:
“Hope everything is going well. Just sending some pictures of little Luna
I love her so much, I can’t thank you enough.
She has come such a long way from when I started fostering her, and has such a big, sweet personality. “
Heavenly Creatures rescued Porter and his brother from a feral cat colony some years back. His mom wrote to us in June of 2021 with this happy update:
“Porter is my “foster fail.”
He’s still feral if you’re anyone but me (unless you have treats).
He’s so possessive and screams at people to go away because he doesn’t want them getting my attention. He also looked after me when I had my hysterectomy…he laid on me with his arm across my belly, wouldn’t let anyone near me, and wouldn’t leave my side.
I’ve been through Hell just to accommodate him and make sure he had as little stress as possible for my move back to Ontario, which isn’t easy when he’s so easily stressed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I need him just as much as he needs me and I’d be lost without him.”READ MORE
Griffen: Adopted 2019
Griffen is just one of many pound cats that Heavenly Creatures has rescued.
I fostered him in 2019 and brought him back and forth to his vet appointments.
After a few months, his family saw his picture being advertised by Heavenly Creatures and came forward to bring him home.
We would all miss him as he had become part of our pack, however, he had a home and we wished him the best with his family.
Little did I know that only a couple of months later, Heavenly Creatures would call me again to inform me that Griffin had once again been picked up and was now back at the pound.
They also told me that his family had surrendered him . When they asked me if I would consider fostering him again I said yes!
So the cat came back, maybe not the very next day, but I took it as a sign and soon after officially adopted him into our pack.
Griffen thinks he is a husky and often sleeps between the two of them.
Thank you Heavenly Creatures for making his story, as well as the story of many other animals in need, have a happy ending.READ MORE
In May of 2020, two of our volunteers found two scared female cats taped up in a box on HC’s office doorstep.
June marks the one year anniversary of them being in their new home and mom sent us this picture to show us how well they are doing in their new home.
