Adoption Success Stories

The GBHS is always excited to receive updates from our adopters. You may view some of our most recent success stories below or click on Archives at the top to view some of our older success stories. Thank you to all who have chosen to give one of our worthy pets a loving home!

If you adopted your pet from the GBHS, click here to share your story today! When sharing your story, things we enjoy knowing are when you adopted your pet, why you decided to adopt from the GBHS, and why you selected the pet that you adopted. You may also want to share any post-adoption anecdotes that have made your pet a part of your family.
