Biography:

Meet Yoda! He's a large, active dog weighing in at 80lbs. He does great during car rides and enjoys playing in the yard with volunteers and staff. He already knows "sit" and is working on "wait". He can get overexcited when he sees his leash and during play, which leads to him jumping up, something that a little training will help with! With Yoda, he doesn't realize that he's a large dog. His LOVE is just as BIG as he is! At this time, it is unknown if he does well with cats, but he might do well with dogs of similar size and energy. On a recent hiking adventure with Land Trust with North Alabama he didn't seem to mind the other canine companions, honestly, he was too interested in everything else going on! He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and on flea/tick/heartworm prevention meds. Apply to adopt him at ghhs.org!

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. Each interested, potential adopter will fill out the application attached to the animal of interest. To be considered for adoption:

  • Adopters must be at least 19 years old.
  • If you rent, you must have permission from your landlord and pet fees must be paid in advance.
  • If adopting into a family, we require all members of the family to be in agreement about adopting. For families that already include another dog, we typically require a meet and greet; this may be hosted on the GHHS property, or at the potential adopter’s home.
  • Some animals may require a home inspection.
  • Verification of current pet(s) vaccine/vet records.

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 shelter 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.

The adoption fee covers: spay/neuter surgery (legally required), current vaccines and boosters, a microchip with a lifetime registration, along with flea & tick preventative and heartworm preventative until time of adoption. In addition, each animal will be sent home with a small bag of food to help transition them to their new diet.

Safety note: All dogs must leave wearing a leash and collar, cats must leave in a carrier. You may bring these items with you or purchase them at GHHS. Dog leashes/collars are available for purchase, $2 and up. Cat carriers (cardboard) are available for $5.
