Almost all DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter.

Associate Director of Development

Paul Vornholt

Paul started with DCHS in 2022 after a decade working in the craft beer industry, working everywhere from Alaska to Maine. He is a graduate of Truman State University with a degree in Anthropology/Sociology.

Paul and his wife Kristin have five animals at home, including three cats, Monterey Jack, Wicket, and Wedge, and two dogs Tonks and Santos L Halper.

Paul partners with donors to match their charitable interests and passions to the needs of the animals in our community, including stocks/bonds, IRA distributions, and our Directors’ Council giving society.
