Adopt a Lovable Fur Baby - Gulf Coast Humane Society


You’re off to a great start looking for the newest addition to
your family at the Gulf Coast Humane Society.

The dogs and cats here are eager to find their new best friend and our team is excited to help you decide which animal is the right fit for you and your lifestyle.

All of our animals are screened for health and temperament, spayed or neutered, current on age appropriate vaccines, Rabies and they are micro-chipped.

Available animals can be viewed online and by stopping by the shelter during business hours. Our staff will guide you through our adoption process, which includes completing an application form and having a discussion with our shelter staff to ensure that you know all necessary information about adopting your pet. If you see an animal on our website that you are interested in adopting, you will need to visit the animal at the shelter before submitting the application.

To ensure a smooth transition into the home, it is suggested to do a dog meet and greet, at the Gulf Coast Humane Society, with any current dogs and all residents of your home, including children.


Why we charge an
adoption fee

As a private, nonprofit organization that relies completely on private donations and its own fundraising abilities to operate the fees collected from the adoption of each animal help to offset some of the costs involved in providing care for the animals and preparing for placement into a new home.

The average cost to shelter, care and prepare our pets for adoption is on average $318. The fees we charge for adoption have given your new pet all the things to have a great new start with you. They have been examined by our veterinarian staff; given up to date vaccinations; been spay or neutered; microchipped and a free office visit at the GCHS Veterinarian Clinic is included; screened for health and temperament; as well as fed and cared for by our shelter staff.


Includes: spay/neuter, vaccinations, mircochip, and free office visit at the GCHS Clinic.
