Fosters and Adopters Come Up HUGE For GCHS Shelter Animals!
GCHS asked for foster and adoption help...and the community stepped up big time for the shelter animals!

Just under a week, fosters flocked to GCHS to help home the shelter animals, by the tune of 60 dogs and 34 cats being fostered. This is great news for GCHS and helping keep kennels cleared in case of other animals needing safety and comfort. Fosters are still needed, with many applications being sent in, we will be posting the available shelter animals on our social media, including Instagram and Facebook.

Please email outreach@gulfcoasthumanesociety.org if interested in fostering.

Adoptions were also great, with many shelter animals finding their furever homes! There are still dogs and cats still up for adoption or needing fostering, please visit the Adoptable Pets Webpage to see more!
