July 2022 Heart Connections
44 pets were adopted from GMHS and 68 pets were transferred to our adoption-guaranteed partners through our Highway to Home program in July 2022! Above are just a few of the matches made. Our many thanks to all of the those who chose to open their heart and home to a homeless pet in need.

If you are ready to make a heart connection with a homeless pet, our adoption team would be happy to provide a personalized recommendation. Simply fill out your adoption questionnaire and we will be in touch to help you meet your new best friend.
