Micro-Chipped & Registered upon adoption.

Regular adoption fee does not apply to those animals designated as a part of
     the program. If you are 65 or over, we simply ask that you provide a  
loving & patient retirement home in which to enjoy each others company. 

Our staff reserves the right to terminate or deny any adoption, at any time, for any reason.  Filling out a pre-adoption application does not guarantee that you will receive or be approved for that pet.

Adoption fees are non-refundable.

Pets at GHS are not viewable while quarantined.  We wait until they are healthy, recovered from medical procedures and ready to find a forever home before making them available for adoption.

Deposits/pre-payments are not accepted, as a potential owner needs to meet and spend time with the pet to see if they will be a good match for each other.

The animals that we adopt out are strictly indoor pets and meant to be a part of the family. GHS will not allow any adoption where the animal is being kept outdoors. (IE: Barn cats or outside dogs kept on cable/chain living in dog house).

Who We Are

The Gateway Humane Society is a no-kill shelter dedicated to improving the lives of unwanted, lost or abandoned cats and dogs.

We provide medical attention along with a safe, clean environment for the animals to live in until a loving person or family comes along to provide the pet a new home.

Our motto:  no matter how long, we will find you a home.

The Gateway Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on the good will and generosity of individuals and businesses to provide proper care for our pets.

We believe in the prevention of cruelty to animals and reducing the over population of domestic animals by spaying and neutering pets.  The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers are dedicated to the pets housed in our shelter 24/7.
