Hours of Operation: The GSARC will be open Tuesday - Saturday once we obtain a facility.
Directions to the GSARC: Will be updated once we obtain a facility.
Does the GSARC take in strays? Not yet. Once we obtain a facility, we will be able to take in strays by municipal contract.
What do I do if I found someone’s 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, read the Lost ads in the newspaper, and notify your local police department.
please contact your police department or health department to arrange for your town’s animal control officers (ACO) to bring the strays 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.
Does the GSARC have any puppies, small dogs or kittens? If you are looking for a puppy, small dog, or a kitten, it is best to come to the GSARC in person as often as possible. Puppies, small dogs and kittens come in all the time but are adopted out very quickly.
What is required to adopt? To adopt a pet from the GSARC, you need to come in person with your entire family. You will talk to an adoption counselor and be asked to fill out an adoption application. The Adoption Counselor will talk with you and help you find the perfect match for your family. For more info check out our Adoption page.
How do I surrender (bring in or give up) my animal? If you wish to turn your pet into us, please call us to make an appointment. THIS CAN BE DONE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
What do I do if I suspect someone of animal cruelty? If you would like to report suspected cruelty to animals, please call your local police department.
What do I do if I lost my pet? Call your local police department 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.
How can I get my pet spayed or neutered? Call our low cost Spay/Neuter Clinic for appointments or more information. Cats & Dogs only please.
What do I do if I find injured wildlife? Call the shelter customer service department or your police department. Also, please check out the Coexisting with Wildlife Fact Sheet.
