We have been involved with several charities during our life in Galveston. These include local charities as well as international. We would like to highlight two of these for you and ask you to consider making a much-needed donation. We believe in giving back to those who are not as fortunate as we. We believe that people are mostly good-hearted and would give if simply asked. So, we are asking you to think with your heart and give to those in need. Any donation, whether small or large will have a positive impact on these two organizations that are dedicated to helping children in Africa and lost and abandoned pets in Galveston. The work needed to be done is large and endless. Your gift will save a life, either human or animal. Please consider giving today.

Galveston Island Humane Society

Humane Society

The Galveston Island Humane Society, Inc. is dedicated to the welfare of unwanted and homeless animals of Galveston Island. They work tirelessly to end cruelty, abuse and the overpopulation of animals while providing the highest quality of life to those brought to them for care. The work never ends, but you can help defenseless dogs, cats and critters through your support of the Galveston Island Humane Society.

GIHS is an “open admission” shelter for Galveston Island. That means they accept all homeless pets on the island, even when the shelter is full. Their open admission status in a community with a disproportionately high number of homeless or unwanted pets could lead to needless euthanasia in the shelter. However, the diligent work of their staff and many volunteers assures that adoptable pets are not held under a time limit and are kept available until they are rehomed, placed in a family or transferred to a partnering agency.

The Galveston Island Humane Society is open to the public six days a week to facilitate reuniting pets with their families, provide care for the homeless, unwanted and abused pets of the island and promote adoptions into forever homes.
