The Galveston Island Humane Society, Inc. is solely dedicated to the cause and welfare of unwanted or homeless animals. This organization provides a temporary refuge for these animals, arranges placement in responsible homes, and provides community education toward the prevention of cruelty to animals and the instruction of humane pet care.
The Humane Society has some specific goals (objectives) that we would like to accomplish in the future. The following is a list of some of those goals:
- To find good homes for all of our animals as an alternative to euthanasia.
- Obtain enough funding to continue our current programs and expand into other areas.
- Seek funding to enable the GIHS to build a healthier, larger, better-equipped facility. This will include individuals and/or businesses interested in donating money, materials, and expertise.
- Initiate and coordinated comprehensive spay/neuter programs, city-wide to stop the influx of unwanted and homeless animals in the shelter.
