Regular adoption fee does not apply to those animals designated as a part of
     the program. If you are 65 or over, we simply ask that you provide a  
     ​loving & patient retirement home in which to enjoy each others company. 

Adoption Process:

- Pre-adoption form and interview (at the shelter after meeting pet).
- You will be called within 24-72 hours 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.

Our staff reserves the right to terminate or deny any adoption, at any time, for any reason.  Filling out a pre-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 viewable 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.​
