  • Where are you located?
    The GSARC currently operates as a Foster-Based Organization and does not have a physical location at this time.
  • Does the GSARC take in strays?
    The GSARC does not currently take in stray animals from the public. If you have found a stray, you must contact your local animal control for assistance.
  • What do I do if I lost my pet or found somebody else's pet?
    Lost your pet: Call your local police department and ask for animal control and ask them which shelter takes strays from your town. If animal control picks up your pet, you will then know where he/she would be taken. Although you can call that shelter and ask if they have your pet, it is always best to visit the shelter in person to see for yourself since only you know what your pet looks like. If you lost a dog and would like to request our assistance or need guidance, visit our Lost Pet Tips page for information. (Located on the Programs & Services page) Found a pet: First, try to find the owner yourself. Most pets do not wander far and it is best for the pet to get home as quickly as possible. Post flyers around your neighborhood, check social media, and notify your local police department. ​ please contact your local police department or health department to arrange for your town’s animal control officers (ACO) to bring the stray to the appropriate animal shelter. Every town has contracts with different animal shelters and your police or health department will know which shelter has their contract.
  • What is the adoption process like?
    In order to adopt a pet from the GSARC, you need to submit an adoption application called a "Matchmaker Profile" Once our Adoption Counselors review your application, you will be contacted for the interview portion that is completed by telephone. Once you are approved, we will talk with you and help find the perfect match for your family.
  • How do I surrender my animal?
