A Revolutionary Approach to Homelessness. Welcome to Gigi’s Shelter for Dogs.
Gigi’s partners with Columbus Humane to connect shelters that have an abundance of homeless dogs with shelters that have an unmet capacity to get dogs adopted into great homes. Gigi’s and Columbus Humane are working in partnership with shelters in Scioto, Lawrence, Gallia and Jackson counties to keep their dog populations healthier through immunizations, implementing disease protocols and physical changes to their buildings.
Dogs in the program are sent from these source shelters to Gigi’s to undergo an adoption preparation process consisting of a veterinary exam, behavioral evaluation and grooming. From here, dogs are transported to Columbus Humane for adoption. Franklin County Animal Control is also included in the transfer program for a total of five source shelters.
