Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We are an open-admission shelter serving the counties of Gloucester, Mathews, Middlesex, King and Queen, King William as well as the Northern Neck.
About Our Shelter:Our primary purpose is to find good, loving homes for the 4,000-plus felines and canines we receive each year, as well as the many "other" animals brought to our facility.
Guided by the principles that every life has value and is worthy of respect and protection, and that animals contribute positively to the health, happiness, and quality of human life, the GMHS mission is to serve both animals and people by strengthening the human-animal bond as we build a more humane community.
The Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society looks toward a day when all domestic and companion animals are ensured a responsible caring environment for their lifetime, and when all animals are respected and protected.
Come Meet our Pets:The best way to get to know our animals is to stop by the shelter and see us! We are located on Rt. 661-Rangtang Rd in Gloucester County.
Our hours: Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat - 11 AM to 4 PM. and Sundays (for adoptions only) from 1 PM to 4 PM. Closed Wednesdays
Our Adoption Process:Before any pet is released, the adoptive family is carefully screened to assure that a healthy, happy environment will be provided. In addition, each adoptive family receives information on responsible pet care prior to release of the animal.
Next, we review our adoption application. We then conduct a veterinary check and a landlord check (for those who rent). We reserve the right to conduct a house check.
The processing and approval or denial of the application takes 2-3 days.
Please call or visit us between 11 AM and 4 PM Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, or between 1 PM and 4 PM on Sundays if you have any questions. We are closed on Wednesdays.
