Adopt

Give a fur-ever home for an animal in need.

Please view our adoptable pets below.

To begin your adoption process, please click the image (or button) of the pet you’d like to adopt. You will be redirected to Shelterluv to complete your adoption.

Adoption Fees:

Our adoption fees start at $100 but vary depending on age and species of pet.

Our mission is to complete families through a thoughtful and thorough adoption process.

 To ensure every animal is placed in a forever home, GHHS begins this process with a detailed adoption application. You will fill out the application after choosing an animal to adopt.  To be considered for adoption:

  • You must be at least 19 years old.
  • If you rent housing, you must have written permission from your landlord and proof of pet deposit. (Click here if you’re looking for pet-friendly housing in Huntsville.)
  • If adopting into a family, we require all members of the family (including current dogs) to meet the animal on GHHS premises. This also means that animals cannot be adopted as “surprises” or “presents.”
  • Some dogs may require a home inspection.

Meeting these guidelines is not a guarantee that your application will be accepted. GHHS reserves the right to adopt only to qualified homes based upon our guidelines. Each adoption is considered on a first-come, first-qualified basis once the animal is available for adoption. Exceptions may be made for potential adopters.

Adoption Fees

Our adoption fees start at $100 but vary depending on age and species of pet.

The adoption fee covers: spay/neuter surgery (legally required), current vaccines and boosters, a microchip with a lifetime registration, heartworm preventative until time of adoption, and a small bag of food. Please note: all dogs must leave with a collar and leash. You can bring these items with you or purchase them at the shelter.
