GHHS Community Day 2021 is coming up this Saturday!

On July 17, from 9 AM to 2 PM, there will be food and activities for everyone! Whether you are looking for services to provide care for your four legged friend or searching for ways to impact the Rocket City, GHHS Community has you covered. See details below.

A special thanks to our partners!

Get your pet microchipped!

For your furry friends, we will have a Chip-a-Thon to bring awareness to Pet Loss Prevention Month! It will be $15 per pet microchipped. Complete details about the benefits of microchipping your pet and the Chip-A-Thon can be found in this blog post.

Pet Wellness Clinic & King’s Kitchen

Our monthly Gayle Henley Pet Wellness Clinic service day with Dr. Holt, from Rocket City Mobile Vet. The Pet Wellness Clinics offer wellness exams, annual vaccinations, heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and microchipping if needed. $12 wellness exam is required for all pets seen by the doctor. King’s Community Kitchen pet food pantry will also be open Saturday! King’s Community Kitchen provides low-income pet owners with food for their dogs and cats in times of financial difficulty. By giving out donated dog and cat food, we can save lives and keep animals in their own homes. In 2018 alone, with our community’s support, we provided over 35,000 pounds of pet food to needy homes.

As if that isn’t enough, we’ll be doing our Shelter Clean Out garage sale with pet supplies and more!

Hippea Camper Food Truck

For you and your family, we will have the Hippea Camper with plant based foods. The Hippea Camper aims to provide the Rocket City with a healthy, plant-based option. Specializing in Southern comfort foods that are familiar to our history and southerners and presented in a way that will delight and excite vegans and non-vegans alike! All of Hippea Camper’s products align with a health-conscious, Eco-friendly lifestyle, from their ingredients to their supplies. They believe in the health benefits of a plant-based diet and promote it within our community. Our mouths are watering!!

Epicure™ Fundraiser

For the cooks in the family, we have the Epicure Fundraiser! Epicure is a program of recipes, meal plans, and spices that makes cooking family favorites fast and simple- in 20 minutes or less. More details will be available this coming Saturday at Community Day.

Kong Stuffing Party

For the kids, we will have a Kong stuffing party. Who doesn’t love peanut butter?? We know plenty of pups who absolutely love it! Donate a jar of peanut butter, and the kids will be able to choose between fruits, veggies, and peanut butter while they make treats for our pups! We’ll be limiting one Kong toy per child, so be sure to show up early to get in on the party!

Community Classes

For activities to help other people’s pets, we have members of Helping Animals Without Shelters and a Plants-Fur-Paws class. We will be able to educate volunteers and the community on plants that are pet safe. We hope to be able to show the community how to maximize care while fostering or when they don’t have pets on their property.


Of course you can always adopt your next pet!

And as always, we have so many animals looking for their forever home and that are available for adoption. You can adopt your next pet during Community Day. 

We look forward to seeing everyone!
