12.7.14 - Stray Dog and Cat Found Together Adopted Together1


On Thursday we told you about a stray dog and cat – best friends – who were found together in Georgia.  We’re pleased to tell you that they’ve already found a home – together!

Henni the dog and Penny the cat – both females –were brought to the Columbia County Animal Services in Grovetown after a woman discovered them in her yard.

“They were brought in as strays to us by a citizen in Martinez who found them in her yard and the owner actually found them online and contacted us to let us know that they were her pets,” explained Shelter Operations Manager Daniel Mayne.  “She wasn’t able to come back and reclaim them. Her husband is in the military and got stationed up in North Carolina so she wasn’t able to come back and get them.”

The former owner requested that they be put in the same cage, which has been done.

“They’re inseparable. They are right next to each other all the time,” Mayne said.  “In the mornings Henni will groom Penny, the cat. They will get to playing and we let them out of their cages to play around in the room while we’re cleaning.”

Because they are such good friends, the shelter refused to split them up, and insisted they be adopted together.  The adoption fee was even lowered to make that possible.  Now they are going to a new home together.

“Thanks to WJBF and everyone that spread the word about these two adorable fur-babies, our Christmas wish was answered,” CCAS said.  “Henni and Penny were adopted this morning!”

  1. Oh, that just gave me goosebumps! So very happy this ended well! Thanks for the follow-up. GREAT holiday story!

  2. So glad these two unique and beautiful animals have been adopted as a pair. Their markings match one another!!! I think Henny and Penny are absolutely gorgeous and the family that adopted them is very lucky to have them!! Wish them all much happiness !

  3. This is truly a wonderful story and I am so glad that they did go home together. If they had been separated I believe they probably would not have survived because they probably would have mourned them selves away. Thank God for the wonderful person who took them in. And what a bunch of garbage from the previous owner. How could they just leave them behind like that. I believe they have no feelings for those poor animals and probably was looking to get rid of them any way.

  4. The lesson learned…….the former owner of these adorable pets should not
    have any since they are not responsible !!!
