At HGAS, our goal is to attract responsible pet owners and to help them provide permanent loving homes.  To that extent, we ask potential adopters to give serious thought to the responsibilities of pet ownership. At HGAS, the ultimate goal is to attempt to match the animal with the most suitable home. For services, all animals released from HGAS are altered, micro-chipped, and up to date on vaccinations. New pet owners will receive instructions regarding medical & nutritional needs for each animal.


Adoption Fee

Adoption fees range depending on the type of animal (cats, dogs, farm animals, horses). Fee includes the above-mentioned services. On a case to case basis, donations may be accepted in lieu of adoption fees, as determined by HGAS.



Animals who are not ready for adoption (i.e., are too young or receiving special care) qualify for our foster-to-adopt program, where potential adopters are able to care for the animal until the animal is ready to be adopted. If you are interested in fostering to adopt, please fill out a Foster Application and indicate that you would like to foster-to-adopt.  



Have love to give? We are always seeking temporary foster families! Please fill out a Foster Application if you are interested.
