Pitch In Pets
Medical is the #1 expense at GHHS.
Pitch In Pets allows GHHS to care for animals that are heartworm positive, those that have endured serious physical injuries or trauma, are malnourished and animals that need additional time to adjust to accepting the love and compassion that we have to offer.

During 2023 GHHS spent over $123,000 caring for surrendered animals in our care.
Unfortunately, last year GHHS cared for more medical needs than we had in years! Heartworm positive dogs were a large concern, yet animals experiencing seizures, inverted eyelids, amputation, and the heartbreaking issues of animals from neglect and abuse cases living emaciated with sores, tumors, and internal health challenges were all a priority.
Through multiple fundraising efforts and building community partnerships, we will give these precious animals a second chance!
For the last decade, our pecan sale has raised an approximate $10K each fall/winter, thanks to our volunteers Dennis and Jane Loeffelholz, that are the PAWSOME volunteers that lead this effort!
Over the past few years, using our social platforms has allowed GHHS to request our community to donate through specific posts, create birthday campaigns, and share our story. In 2023, GHHS received more than $20K via Facebook and other platforms, with a large percentage being applied to the PIP fund!
In 2024, we will be hosting multiple campaigns and events specific to supporting the PIP fund. Please stay tuned to the website and socials for more information!
