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.

By joining our Directors’ Council, you join other devoted and loyal supporters giving $1,000 a year or more to support the lifesaving work of DCHS.

These critical funds allow us to apply your gift immediately for daily shelter and community outreach operations, help us meet unplanned, unmet and unanticipated needs in our community, and spark innovative best practices to serve as a model for animal welfare organizations nationwide.

Members in the Directors’ Council have the opportunity to engage in unique experiences with DCHS throughout the year. This includes updates with our Directors and other shelter leaders, exclusive special events, animal experiences and more.

If you have any questions regarding the Directors’ Council, or would like to make your donation via stocks or other securities, please contact Paul Vornholt and Hilary Hemmes-Kavanaugh, (608) 838-0413 ext. 117 (Paul) or ext. 196 (Hilary).
