The Mission of the Green Hills Animal Shelter is to provide a comprehensive community-based animal care, education and adoption program by providing a safe haven for abandoned, abused and neglected animals; educating the public on responsible pet ownership and the importance of spaying and neutering animals;and encouraging and facilitating the adoption of available animals by appropriate and responsible community members.
In an effort to find forever homes as soon as possible for our longest term residents, we have reduced adoption fees on select dogs. Currently, this list includes the following dogs: Pepper, Josie, Cocoa, Deniro, JJ, Ronan, Roxy, York, Sherlock and Ferguson. Please see their individual profiles for specific information.
We are seeking a permanent, loving, responsible home for all companion animals. So that we may be assured that the animal you wish to adopt is best suited to you, your home, and your lifestyle and is placed in an environment that is capatible with his/her needs, we ask that you complete an application. Please note we have two separate applications, one for cats and one for dogs. In order for you to adopt an animal, we need you to . . . - be sure that you are financially able to provide for the animals's needs. This includes food, supplies, license and veterinary care. - be sure that you have adequate time to spend with your new pet, including training, exercising and grooming. - have your landlord's permission to bring an animal into his/her property - have the consent of all adults in your household. - be at least 18 years of age and have verifiable identification. - complete this application in full and discuss it with a GHAS employee or volunteer. - understand that this an adoption, not a sale. GHAS reserves the right to postpone or refuse an adoption. If your application is approved, you will be asked to pay the adoption fee and sign an adoption contract.
The adoption fee for dogs is $99, which includes a bordetella and DA2PPV vaccine, rabies vaccine, de-worming and spaying/neutering of the dog.
The adoption fee for cats is $69, which includes the FVRCP vaccine, rabies vaccine, de-worming and spaying/neutering of the cat.Green Hills Animal Shelter
