As of November 4, 2018 Adoption Center is now closed as an adoption center. Adoptable animals can be visited at the Main Shelter, Mounds East, Mounds Sun Prairie and Mounds Fitchburg. Beginning in January 2019, DCHS will be opening a Thrift Store at this location to provide funding to support our valuable programs and services and offer our community low cost pet and household items we are unable to use at DCHS.

Visiting Hours

When can I meet with an an adoptable animal?

In an effort to better assist adopters picking up their new best friends, the adoption team cannot guarantee that guests arriving after 6:00pm (on weekdays) or 4:00pm (on weekends) will be able to meet with a pet. We will do our best, however, to accommodate our guests arriving after those times given available staffing and volunteer resources.
