GHHS is no-kill animal shelter in Huntsville, Alabama.

With numbers rising and more of us popping up positive, protocols are going to be changed temporarily. Effective January 14, 2022, all staff and volunteers will be required to wear a mask at all times. We will continue to encourage masks and hand sanitizer for our guests. We will have signs posted encouraging to wear a mask and it’s recommended.

At the shelter we will limit one family at a time in the cat room, dog kennels, and waiting areas. This is going to be very similar to our past experience with limiting traffic within the shelter. If numbers continue to rise and places shut down, we will only allow approved applicants in the shelter.

We need everyone healthy and safe to “Unleash Possibilities” in 2022.

King's Community Kitchen

King’s Kitchen is open twice a month:

the 2nd Wednesday from 2:00pm-4:00pm

the last Saturday of each month from 9:00am-11:00am

Due to rising numbers of COVID19, distribution will be done DRIVE THRU style and we are asking that you please wear your masks as well to keep volunteers and staff healthy!

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.

You can help!

GHHS relies on community support to donate bags of food to stock the pantry. We accept all brands, and even open bags. Please consider donating food to help those animals in need. 

The fund is named after King (pictured), who was surrendered to GHHS extremely emaciated. His owners could not afford to feed him. They didn’t want to give him up. King was surrendered, returned to normal weight and now lives in his forever home. We never want to see another animal go hungry.
