All adoptions include the spay or neuter surgery, a microchip, a rabies vaccination, a month of pet insurance and the current months heartworm and flea preventive. The pets featured in this weeks’ paper are a half priced adoption fee of $37.50.


Bailey is a 11 month old Schnauzer/Dachshund mix with long hair and big eyes. She is shy at first but very loving once she warms up to you. She is still trying to get the hang of fetch (she won’t bring the ball back to you) but she likes to play. She needs a family who can give her love and a little time to open her heart to them.


Blackbeard is a 5 month old black and white male kitten with unusual facial markings. He does great with other cats and dogs as he came from a foster home who had both. He is very playful and would be good in a home with kids.  Stop by to visit him today!

Paws Gala – Disco Paws:

The Galveston Island Humane Society Annual Paws Gala is right around the corner. This year we will present Disco Paws: “Stayin’ Alive” and honor our longtime supporter and board member, Gene Hornstein. We are planning a Dynomite party, with lots of Jive Talkin’ while we are Groovin’ to the sounds of the “Level One Band” under the Mirror Ball to The Hustle.

Mark your calendar for a special night, Saturday, September 27, 2014 in the Ballroom of the Galveston Island Convention Center at the San Luis Resort beginning at 6:30 pm. The evening will feature nine Elite Pet Owners and their pets in specially decorated, themed vignettes, created by local designers. These EPO’s will be vying for the title of Pet of the Year for their pets.

This year’s vignettes will feature: Katie Brown, Ryanne Duzich, Vickie Lewis, Margo Markowitz, Stacy Mitchell, Gwyn Richardson, Jeannie Walser, and Meg Winchester. The money raised from the Paws Gala is dedicated to the continued upkeep and improvement of our shelter facility which provides care for the Island’s homeless animals.

Thanks to The Witchery!
They did it again - another fabulous Witches Ball held in October of 2013. Clyde and Kimberly Wood, of The Witchery, present an amazing check to Caroline Dorsett-Pate at the Galveston Island Humane Society. GIHS would like to thank Kim, Clyde and all the participants of the Ball. A great time was had by all! Also in the picture are a couple cute “adoptable” cats at the shelter. The little black one has been adopted but the buff, Butters, is still waiting.
