Baby Girl

White/Grey Female Dog

Breed:
Mixed Breed (Medium)

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 5 years, 6 months

Hello I'm Baby Girl! I'm a very curious and high energy girl who loves to play fetch! Well, not exactly 'fetch', more like 'chase me to get the ball back', but hey, it's all fun for me!! I would do best in a home with older children and no other animals, my size and energy level would be a bit much for them. I'd love a home with a large, fenced in yard for me to play in!

Gerald

Black/Chocolate Male Dog

Breed:
Mixed Breed (Medium)

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 1 years, 4 months

Hi! I'm Gerald. I was found as a stray and brought to GHHS to restart my life. I'm a lively pup who absolutely loves to play ball! I am very high energy and do tend to bark when I get excited. I absolutely love people and most other dogs. Being so young and not used to a home environment, I will need some help learning manners...I would do best in a house with a large, fenced in yard. Would you be willing to give me my second chance in life?

Caesar

Brown Male Cat

Breed:
Domestic Shorthair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 7 years, 1 months

Sorry! I'm currently putting paw and pen together writing my autobiography!

Imperial

Orange Male Cat

Breed:
Domestic Shorthair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 5 years, 6 months

My name is Imperial! I was one of the cats that was rescued from the hoarding case. I'm slowly getting used to human interaction and I'm a sucker for scratches behind my ears! I just want to be loved by a family of my own, but I will need someone willing to give me time before I open up completely.

Hider

Black/White Male Cat

Breed:
Domestic Shorthair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 7 years, 3 months

Meet HIDER. This is definitely a misnomer. This sweet boy loves to meet people. He loves to be petted and is just a super friendly guy. Hider likes people and gets along with other cats. He is lean, lanky and athletic. He sports a beautiful fur coat of snowy white and midnight black. He has a cute back chin. Hider is about 7 years old, completely vetted and ready for a loving, forever home. If you are interested in this handsome boy, fill out an application at GHHS.org.

Canyon

Buff Male Cat

Breed:
Domestic Shorthair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 3 years, 8 months

Meet CANYON. This boy is so sweet. He's quick to make friends and loves to be petted. Canyon is FIV+...which we like to say is...no big thang!!! (FIV {feline immunodeficiency virus} is not passed by sharing food or water dishes, grooming each other, litter boxes, mock fighting, scratches, or even sneezes. FIV is mainly passed from cat to cat through deep bite wounds, the kind that usually occur outdoors during aggressive fights and territorial disputes - the perfect reason to keep this sweet boy inside. FIV is NOT transmissible to humans. And a good diet, safe environment, and regular vet checkups will give your FIV+ kitty the best chance to live a long healthy life.) Canyon is three years old and a beautiful ginger buff. He has super plushy fur and adorable chubby cheeks. He's just a great cat!!!

Viktor

Black/White Male Cat

Breed:
Domestic Shorthair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 5 years, 3 months

Just look at this handsome dude. VIKTOR!!! He is a cuddly, super friendly kitty who loves to be petted and adores human companionship. Viktor is a special boy, in a unique situation. He is both FIV+ and FeLV+. A double whammy. FIV+ is...no big thang!!! FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) is not passed by sharing food or water dishes, grooming each other, litter boxes, mock fighting, scratches, or even sneezes. FIV is mainly passed from cat to cat through deep bite wounds, the kind that usually occur outdoors during aggressive fights and territorial disputes - the perfect reason to keep this sweet boy inside. FIV is NOT transmissible to humans or dogs. FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus), on the other hand, is contagious and CAN be passed to other cats though saliva, blood, and to some extent urine and feces. Grooming and fighting seem to be the most common ways to spread the infection. FeLV is NOT transmissible to humans or dogs. Because Viktor is FeLV+ he needs to be adopted into a home with no other cats, or with other FeLV+ kitties. While he is currently healthy, care must be taken to protect him from any secondary infections (URI, UTI, etc...) that might overwhelm his compromised immune system. He is five years old and ready for a loving home. If you don't have a cat and need a cat - this IS the cat for you!!!!

Tessa

Tortoise Female Cat

Breed:
Domestic Longhair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 2 years, 3 months

Hi, I'm Tessa. I have opened up so much since I have been here, I used to hide in a corner and shy away from people. Look at me now though, out and about and showing off my beauty! Unfortunately, I am FIV positive, meaning that my immune system isn't the best. This cannot be spread to humans, but it can be spread to other cats. Thus, I would do best as an only cat, or in a household with other cats with FIV. This also means I need to be an indoor cat and an indoor cat only. I am still full of love and have so much affection in store for my future fur-ever home!!

Emery

Orange Female Cat

Breed:
Domestic Longhair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 2 years, 3 months

Hi! Emery here. Are you looking for a sweet kitty to add to your family? I recently had a litter of kittens who have all been adopted into their new homes. Now I'm ready to find a home of my own too.

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 0 years, 8 months

Brenly

Brown/Black Female Cat

Age: 0 years, 9 months

Hi! I'm Brenly. I was brought in with my kitten who has found a home, yay! Now I'm ready for a home of my own. I'm a sweet girl who needs a patient owner to help bring me out of my shell. If you're ready for a new feline friend I could be the one for you!

Houdini

Silver/White Male Cat

Breed:
Domestic Shorthair

Status: Available For Adoption

Age: 4 years, 1 months

My name is Houdini. I'm a sweet guy but I like my space. I prefer to do things on my terms..."What cat doesn't, right?"
