GALVESTON ISLAND HUMANE SOCIETY

Over 3,000 unwanted and stray animals enter GIHS’ door each year and for over 36 years, it’s our hope to give them a chance to become part of someone’s family. Since 1981, GIHS has been dedicated to promoting animal welfare and the protection and prevention of unwanted or homeless animals. We are an “open admission” shelter for Galveston Island, accepting all homeless pets, even when our shelter is full.
