Willow is a GCHS staff and volunteer favorite. She walks super nice on her freedom harness and is a big fan of peanut butter. Willow will want to be the only dog so she can entertain her family with her gentle ways.
This pretty female American Bulldog mix is as pretty as her picture. She came to GCHS as an abandoned dog from the Redlands so her history is unknown. She is great with people, but will probably have to be the only dog as she is picky about her dog companions. She is a smart girl and has gotten some obedience training while she has been with GCHS. Her new family should easily be able to pick up on working with her as she knows sit, down, spin, leave-it, drop-it, stay and wait until released to eat from a food bowl.
Nolen does also qualify to be fostered under GCHS's senior (dogs at 8 and over) program that allows someone to take one of the fur kids home and share their good companionship while the shelter still provides the food and, if needed, any medications or medical care.
This program allows GCHS's senior dogs (and cats) to be in a loving home environment but allows the family to have some flexibility such as returning the dog to the shelter if your situation changes or if you just want to take a vacation and need a place to keep her safe while you are gone.
Cooper is a gentle giant. He is a seven-year-old Great Pyrenees mix who has a calm personality.
Kobe is a super talented athlete and an Olympic tennis ball catcher. Gold medalist. He is sweet and affectionate and wants to please so badly.
Ali is a lovable declawed Calico cat.
Jordan is a bit nervous at the shelter and would prefer to be the only cat. Please be patient and let him warm up to you.
