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.

Pitch In Pets

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.

Foster a Pet

Your generosity will provide young and old, injured and sick, abused and under socialized dogs and cats a chance to grow or heal before finding their forever homes. Fostering is a wonderful experience for you and your family ‐ you can feel good knowing you have helped save an animal’s life. Even better, you’ve created space in the shelter to accommodate other homeless animals. Fostering increases an animal’s chance of adoption as they are being socialized and cared for in a home environment.
Paws for Patriots

GHHS’s newest community program is Huntsville Hounds on Transport (HHOT Dogz.)  In the spring, GHHS began transporting dogs each month to the Humane Society of Washington County in Maryland or Humane Rescue Alliance in Washington DC.  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 256-991-8081 for more information.
