  • Testimonial from Elizabeth

    "The work you and your team undertake is inspiring and so needed. We could never thank you enough for the kindness the GTHS showed to Lily and Boo while they were in your care, I’ll never forget it. One day, I hope, we will make a random drive by and stop in to see the great additions that have been made to your shelter. In the meantime, please give my regards to your wonderful staff. Your alumni Estelle (now Shiloh), who was adopted by my best friend, Christine. Shiloh is in the best of hands, another happy ending that you and the GTHS made possible. Thank YOU!! All the best and a pre-emptive Happy Holidays to you!"


  • Testimonial from Nicole

    "Had a wonderful experience last night adopting our new kitty. The facility is beautiful and the staff/volunteers are wonderful. I had my two young and very excited daughters with me and everyone was so patient with us. We love our kitty and she has settled right into our home. She is so sweet and gentle and was clearly very well taken care of. Thanks for an incredibly positive experience for our family."


  • Testimonial from Carleton

    "As I type this our new addition to our family is sitting with me. I had 4 visits to the GTHS and was very impressed how friendly, knowledgeable and clean the facility was. The paid staff and volunteers know so much about all the cats and there history, I just wanted to take all the cats home. I ended up with my new pal Hermes. when we got home I opened his cage and he stepped out with his tail straight up and fluffed out and toured the entire house . He found his litter box,, food and water dish and 3 hours later its like he has lived here for 4 years. I feel so lucky. Thanks to all the staff and volunteers for finding homes for all these special pets... I feel like I'm the one who got adopted. :)"
