The GTHS Animal Hospital contains an Operating Room, Treatment Room, Examination Room, Pharmacy, X-Ray Room and a Hospital Intake / Recovery Area, and provides spay/neuter surgeries for over 1500 homeless pets annually. Having an onsite hospital ensures animals receive timely, thorough and comprehensive care, saves dozens of daily phone calls, reduces trips back and forth to veterinary clinics, dramatically decreases the stress on the GTHS animals, and leads to the additional benefit of earlier adoption availability; so these animals find their forever home quickly. 
 
The Hospital Discharge Volunteer is responsible for discharging animals to the public after their Hospital appointment / surgery, create kennel tags and preparing for the next day's appointments and overseeing the cleanliness of the small Hospital Intake Room.
