Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
GCHS is in need of foster parents. We also need volunteers to help with fundraising events, publicity, photography, newsletters, membership and Petsmart adoption Sundays. Everyday, the GCHS gets many calls from people needing our help and in many cases because of funding and lack of foster homes to place animals in, we must turn down their request for assistance.
Know that there are many ways you can help! You can send tax deductible donations to GCHS or you can volunteer in one of the many areas listed above. If you love to work with animals here is your chance to do so. If you are squeamish about working with the animals, the other volunteer areas may suit you better. In any capacity you will be improving the quality of life in our community and easing the pain of the world. You will feel good about your efforts and you will make many wonderful, dedicated new friends. We look forward to meeting you!
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
