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.
We were founded on January 15th, 1945 by a group of animal lovers with Frances Weil leading the cause. In April of 1998, we began operating out of our current facility which was donated to us by Tom and Cora Keeler.
Since our beginning, we have been dedicated to providing the best care possible to the animals under our roof. Our mission is to find loving, responsible forever homes for all of the orphaned animals at GCHS.
All of our adoptable animals are up to date on vaccinations, spayed/neutered, de-wormed, and free of parasites such as fleas and ticks.
Upon adoption, new pet parents are sent home with their new dog's first 6 months of heartworm prevention, a leash and collar, a starter bag of food, a voucher for a free wellness exam at participating veterinarians, and a toy.
Cats are sent home with a starter bag of food, a wellness exam voucher, and a toy. A temporary transportation box is also provided.
If you fall in love with a heartworm positive dog, we provide treatment at no extra cost to you.
For all dogs who have been here for over 1 year, you can name your own adoption fee! All we ask is that you purchase their first 6 months of heartworm prevention (ranges from $30-$50 depending on weight) as well.
The adoption fee for adult cats is $50, and the adoption fee for kittens is $60.
For all cats who have been here for over 1 year, you can name your own adoption fee!
You must be at least 21 years old to adopt.
We are open 7 days a week, 11-6pm Monday-Saturday and 12-5 Sundays.
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.
