GHHS’s newest community program is Huntsville Hounds on Transport (HHOT Dogz.) GHHS began transporting dogs each month to partner shelters like BePaws They Matter Animal Rescue in New Jersey, Almost Home Humane Society in Iowa, Erie Humane Society in Pennsylvania, and more! Our new cargo van, donated by Jerry Damson Automotive Group, can carry 20+ dogs, depending on their size. This is a very exciting opportunity for GHHS to be able to save more of our community’s animals and provide more animals with loving homes. GHHS is so excited to begin this chapter of saving more lives.
If you are interested in being a volunteer driver, let us know! You must be at least 25 years old with a good driving record. Give us a call at 256-881-8081 for more information.

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.
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, 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.
King’s Community Kitchen offers participants 9 distributions in a 24 month period of time. To qualify for this program, you must provide photo ID, proof of need (a letter from Medicare, Food Stamps, WIC, etc.) and household income of below $35,000, and WRITTEN proof of spay/neuter.
King’s Kitchen is open twice a month: the 2nd Wednesday from 2:00pm- 4:00pm and last Saturday of each month from 9:00am- 11:00am. Food pick-up (up to 30lbs) is allowed once a month. You can apply for the program on one of those open days. Please call 256-881-8081 ext 217 if you have any further questions.
Sometimes GHHS receives or has animals with serious injuries or illnesses.
The Pitch-In Program rehabilitates these loving animals as much as possible in preparation of a forever home. Many of these animals require a longer stay at GHHS to recuperate from their illness or injuries.
We treat a variety of ailments, including heart worm, animals hit by cars, severely malnourished animals, and animals that have to have time to adjust to accepting the love and compassion that we have to offer. Please consider donating to the Pitch-In Pet Fund to help save these animals’ lives.
