Hi, my name is Petunia and I'm the spokespet for the Delta County Humane Society.  A caring person found me along side a road when I was just a tiny puppy. I was very skinny, cold and just a few weeks old.  I was lucky enough to be taken into a loving foster home and it was quickly realized that I had serious medical problems.  I had a birth defect that affected my liver and kept me from gaining weight and I was also born diabetic.  I had some pretty serious surgery when I was just 12 weeks old but after that I started gaining weight and feeling much better.

I spent the next 6 months getting better and really showing off my energy level and doing my best to convince my foster mom that she just couldn't live without me.. I was successful, she adopted me.  I continue to get insulin shots twice a day and will for the rest of my life but my mom doesn't seem to mind and I give her lots of kisses in return.

A lot of my four-legged pals are still waiting for their forever homes.  Won't you please check out our adoptable animals to see if there might be one who could fit into your life?



Welcome to the adoption web site for the Delta County Humane Society.  We are located in Delta County, Colorado - about an hour south of Grand Junction, Colorado on the western side of the state.  We are a small but mighty group of volunteers with only 9 foster homes, yet we manage to rescue and adopt out a fair number of pets.  Below is our totals for the past two years.
