This family, who wasn’t intending to adopt, happened to stop by our adoption event as they passed us to run errands. Daphne, (left) caught their eye and they thought she’d make a good playmate for their retriever (right).
Daphne was supposed to have already been put back in her kennel downstairs and another dog brought up instead because we rotate showing adoptable dogs at our Saturday events. But volunteers had gotten busy and forgotten to take Daphne back. So, we’re chalking this one up to fate!
Thanks to the impromptu stop at HPF and to Daphne staying out longer than planned, this family is now complete! Daphne not only gets this great group as her own but a big yard and pool that she’s looking forward to jumping into come spring.

We’ve got the warm fuzzies about this adoption. We pulled Star from Cobb County Animal Control because they were full. Star’s a shy and sweet 70-lb gal. She never made a peep at adoption events or in her cage at the shelter. Happily, her gentle manner caught the eye of this family who sent us…
Lex (pup on right) went home with a family a couple of months ago. Dad was adamant that Lex retain his foster status and not become dog # 2. Lex first won over Gus, the family’s dog who’s an HPF alumnus. Brother, then mom were next to fall under the spell of Lex’s charms. Dad…
