We love to see dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in their new homes. We love good stories of adopted pets with their new families. Below are some stories of pets adopted at Great River Rescue who have been through some tough circumstances. They are now happy as ever in their new homes. If you have adopted from us and would like your picture featured on our website, please email the picture with pet’s name, and any interesting or funny story about your pet to happytails@greatriverrescue.com
