Success Story: Frank and Erin Wilson aka Piccard and Janeway

June 26, 2020
Piccard and Janeway (formerly Frank and Erin Wilson) came to MHS as a part of a large scale seizure/impound case last October. At MHS, they received the medical attention and care they needed, but were still very scared and unsure of the world around them. Piccard and Janeway were the most challenging “Wilson” dogs to be adopted due to the effects of their unsocialized and feral lives. Staff worked tirelessly to slowly earn their trust and learn to be touched and cared for.
Piccard and Janeway stole the hearts of a volunteer who knew she could give the pups the love and support they needed. Today, Piccard and Janeway are happy & much more confident pups, even kind enough to stop by the shelter to meet and help a nervous foster dog. Their new mom says she celebrates the dog’s tiny behavioral improvements as big wins, such as Piccard and Janeway recently coming out of their room by themselves.
We are thrilled to see Piccard & Janeway flourishing in their new home.

DJ: From Beach Buddy to Snowy Chicago

Upon our return to MHS, we gave DJ back to a volunteer who had an Australian accent (we didn’t catch his name). I told him I think we failed because I fell in love with DJ and felt like he was such a good match for us. The volunteer said “we called that a success” and told me I probably gave DJ the best day ever. This made me think why can’t I make every day “DJ’s Best Day Ever.” Then, we briefly discussed adoption and bribing him to the mainland with Tucker. We boarded our flight home to Chicago the next morning. I thought about, talked about and looked at pictures of DJ until I called MHS when they opened on Monday. I spoke with Kam who told me DJ was already part of the Wings of Aloha program. She was going to see what DJ’s options were.

The Tail of Two Cody’s

Then one day, another Cody called us. One all the way from the Pacific Northwest that felt they could help. Several months after the last of his senior dogs had passed he was ready for a new friend and was looking up “older hard to place shelter dogs”  online when Cody’s profile came up. After reading his Bio and watching his video on our website, Cody felt that he just might be the right home for Cody.  And boy was he!
