Success Story - Leni, Candy, Max, and Maggie

Let's keep celebrating our 35th birthday with more success stories, written by our adoptive families! We'd love to hear your success story - email us at


You can tell Leni has a rough life.
Leni, formerly Augusta, adopted from HSEC in January 2011. She continues to do well in our home with her feline sister Laci, adopted from Saving Graces and her canine sister Sophie.  This picture is taken in 1 of her 2 favorite places, on the chair in front of an open window.  She loves to sit in the window and watch birds, or sprawl out on the chair and reach for the sun like she is doing here.  She also loves my son's room.  If Leni is missing, look no further than my son's room, either curled up on his bed asleep or in the chair in his room.  She has a very deep purr and loves to have her head scratched.   She is very sweet and loves treats.  We are very thankful to the HSEC for allowing Leni to become a part of our family.

Candy and Max


Candy loves to drink out of the faucet. She's very playful and loves to play catch with a ball. She's very loving. This is her favorite place to sleep.


Max is the best dog. Loves to run and play. Sometimes his nose gets him in trouble lol. This is him opening his Christmas presents.


We adopted Maggie a little over a year ago this week, and since then, she has been engrained so deeply into our family unit that we couldn’t imagine not having her in our home. It wasn’t an easy decision to adopt again. We knew it would have to take just the right
Maggie, working hard
moment and dog to get us to adopt again. Thankfully, we saw Maggie.

Maggie had a tough start to her story too. We were informed that, at less than a year old, she was seized from a home where she had been abused and left outside with a chain growing into her neck. We were cautioned from the beginning that she was a little nervous meeting new people, and we had never had a dog before with such a difficult history. But Maggie’s sweet disposition for both my wife and I were felt immediately, and from the moment of first meeting her, we knew we had made the right decision.

We are so happy that we found Maggie, and so thankful for the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina for the work they do. If it weren’t for them, I doubt we would all be as happy as we are now. We love to just sit back and watch her inquisitive, playful nature take over. And she seems perfectly content with that too.
