To visit our adoptable pets, please visit our Adoption & Education Center located at 300 Snow Drive.

While new pets are available for adoption daily, photos are only taken Monday through Friday. Pets added to the site over the weekend should have photos available by Monday evening.

If you find a pet that you are interested in adopting, you may download our GBHS Adoption Application (PDF format) and bring it in with you to expedite the adoption process. Thank you for opting to adopt!
