Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society's adoption process


Submit Application

The first step is to submit an adoption questionnaire detailing your ideal pet (temperament, energy level, etc)


Meet the Pet

Our trained adoption staff will contact you to discuss pets in our care that is a good fit for your home! It is all about making a match!


Approve Application

Our philosophy is to make a good match, so we approve adopters for individual animals, not adoption in general.

Additional adoption info

Please fill out an adoption questionnaire, which can be found on the GMHS website. An adoption counselor and management will review the questionnaire and call the adopter to discuss.

Puppies/Dogs are $175 and Cats/Kittens are $90.
