Humane Society Silicon Valley is lucky enough to receive a large number of cards, letters and emails from adopters each month.  HSSV staff and volunteers enjoy reading these letters and discovering how our "alumni" are doing in their new "forever" homes. 

 

If you adopted a pet from HSSV, please send us your pet's story (a few sentences or short paragraphs), and if available, a photo of your pet and family members. We will review your story and publish it in the area below. 

We hope you enjoy the stories the recent stories that we have received.
