Our Adoption Process...
Adoption fees for dogs start at $150 and vary depending on medical expenses, length of stay at GCHS, and adoptability.
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.

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter!
Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures,
on the pet's details page on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
