Regular adoption fee does not apply to those animals designated as a part of
the program. A Senior Citizen 65 and older.  Any pet 8 Years of age or older is a senior pet. One may adopt one of our senior pets, for a Donation.

Adoption Process:

- Pre-adoption form and interview (at the shelter after meeting pet).
- You will be called within 3 to 7 days and notified of approval or disapproval.
- If approved, you may pay for and pick up your new pet during next open day's business hours. Payment must be check or cash, please bring a collar and leash.

Our staff reserves the right to terminate or deny any adoption, at any time, for any reason.  Filling out a per-adoption application does not guarantee that you will receive or be approved for that pet.

Adoption fees are non-refundable.

Pets at GHS are not view able while quarantined.  We wait until they are healthy, recovered from medical procedures and ready to find a forever home before making them available for adoption.

Deposits/pre-payments are not accepted, as a potential owner needs to meet and spend time with the pet to see if they will be a good match for each other.

We adopt our pets to loving, indoor homes only.​
