Adoption visits are first-come, first-served. We recommend checking our current waitlist prior to your visit. Most other services are by appointment only, including reuniting lost animals, surrendering a pet, wildlife rehabilitation, and more.
DCHS offers a variety of educational programs for all ages. These programs provide one-of-a-kind experiences that teach not only about DCHS services but how to help make our community a better place for both people and animals.
DCHS hosts Camp Pawprint throughout the year. Children ages 7 - 12 enjoy animal-related lessons, interacting with a variety of animals, completing service projects and having fun with other animal lovers.
