Guam Animals in Need (GAIN)

Mission: To improve the care of all animals on Guam by sheltering those in need, and through compassionate advocacy, expert education and strong community connections. What they do: GAIN, the only animal shelter on Guam, operates in Yigo providing care for dogs and cats by providing food, shelter and basic needs. The agency also works to find permanent, loving homes for Guam’s homeless and abused animals through their adoption and foster programs and strives to educate the community in responsible pet care. GAIN has also recently expanded to providing low-cost spay and neuter services at the Raulerson Spay & Neuter Clinic located at the shelter as well, with the help of local and regional volunteer veterinarians.
