Fancy Lady’s Story

This story began with a tragedy but couldn’t have ended any better for our girl Fancy Lady. She came to FDHS after a family friend reached out to us. Her owner and other family members, unfortunately, did not survive a fatal car accident. The surviving family hated to surrender this sweet, gentle lady but were in the midst of an unimaginably difficult situation and did what was best for everyone. Fancy Lady is a sweet, 14 year old girl who behaved like a perfect angel during her short stay at FDHS (6 days to be precise). It is hard to imagine what was going through Fancy’s mind during this sudden transition, but she demonstrated the fact that dogs live in the moment.

We were lucky enough to find the perfect family for her where she quickly fit in. She did hide for the first night but that’s all it took for her to be comfortable. She has two canine siblings and they all get along great. Miss Fancy hit the jackpot after going through a traumatic experience. She is loved by everyone in her new home; human and canine. She has been lucky enough to have two families to love and care for her during her life.


These stories are so unfortunate, but we are honored to be able to play a part in a happy ending. This is what we are here for. We are thankful that we were able to help her original family while they were dealing with a tragedy. Fancy Lady did not have to wait long in the shelter before beginning the next chapter of her life and for that we are grateful. We can’t wait to get more updates on how she is doing!  So far she is very happy in her new home with her new friends!!


Trinity’s Story

Imagine; you’re shaking, confused, and scared as you are taken for a ride in a car. Not knowing where you’re going or why. Suddenly the car turns into a driveway, stops, and you’re swiftly thrown out. Before you can get your bearings and figure out your surroundings, that same car backs over you. All you can do now is freeze in fear.

This nightmare is all that we know of Trinity’s past. This beautiful cat shockingly survived this ordeal almost physically unscathed! She must have used one of those 9 lives we all hear about.
Thankfully the home owner of the chosen driveway cared about this life so ruthlessly dumped on their property. They immediately called us, had no idea what to do, telling us that ‘she’s not moving!’ Our humane agent immediately dispatched to the address not knowing the condition of this poor cat.
From there Trinity was rushed to our vet to be examined. She had some road rash but nothing was broken and nothing life threatening. She was then brought back to the humane society. She was terrified because she had no idea that we all just wanted what was best for her. She hid in her kennel for days. We can only imagine what was going through her mind.
Now she has healed, has been spayed and is up to date on vaccines. She currently resides in our first cat room and has adjusted well. She does well with the other cats and has learned that people can be good. We have all fallen in love with her calm demeanor and striking eyes. Beautiful Trinity is searching for the ‘furever’ home that will give her story the happy ending it deserves. We cannot wait for her to start the next chapter in her life!
