Adoption Information

Our goal is to help you to find your perfect match, and to give our shelter pets the best possible chance of finding a safe and loving home!

Step 1: Learn About Our Shelter Animals 

Check out the photos and bios of the animals who are ready for adoption.

Step 2: Come See Us

Stop by our shelter Tuesday – Saturday to meet adoptable pets! One of our shelter team members will assist you in the selection of the perfect pet. We will have you fill out an adoption survey to learn a little bit more about what sort of companion you’re looking for, review the life and medical history of the pet you are interested in adopting, allow you to spend time with the pet, and together we will make sure it’s the best match possible.

Step 3: Finalizing the Adoption

  1. You will be able to take the pet home immediately as long as he/she is medically ready to go home (completed all age appropriate vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery) and you are prepared to leave with your new friend.
  2. We recommend that all members of the household meet the pet chosen for adoption to ensure that the new pet is compatible with everyone.
  3. For some pets, we may recommend an introduction with your resident animal to ensure that they will get along. Arrangements for a dog meet-and-greet will be made during the matchmaking process.
  4. All dog and puppies must leave the shelter with an appropriate leash and collar (affordable leashes and collars can be purchased from HSGKC). All cats and kittens must leave in an appropriate carrier. These can also be purchased from HSGKC.

“Shelters and rescue centers can be pretty chaotic and stressful at times. However, HSGKC has always greeted me with a smile (I could tell even with masks), an “awww cute!”, and excellent care for my new dogchild. These experiences have motivated me to provide monetary donations at time of adoption and once Tilly’s heartworm treatment was complete – although all the donations in the world can’t demonstrate how grateful I am to you all! I look forward to continuing to support your mission for the benefit of so many animals just like Tilly.”

I’ve adopted a cat and a dog from this humane society, and I cannot say enough good things about them. Professional, caring, understanding, and truly helpful. They want the best matches they can find for their pets, and really care about giving them a good home. They also sell all of their cats for the same price and all of their dogs for one price. A great place and adoption experience!
