Our Main Shelter (including the Adoption Center and Front Office) will be closed Saturday, 9/30, for Bark & Wine! The Wildlife Center and Thrift Store will be open their regular hours.

Our Path of Love and Hope provides a pleasant walkway on our campus between the gazebo and the pergola.

Bricks come in two sizes:

  • The 4" x 8" red brick is available for a gift of $250
  • The 8" x 8" red brick is available for a gift of $500.

Each one is customized to your specifications.

Please order your brick below. Bricks can only be placed when the ground is not frozen. Once we receive your order, we will confirm with you and let you know when we have received and placed the brick, with its location in the path.


Please call Kelsie Matt at (608) 838-0413 ext 164 or email her at kmatt@giveshelter.org.

Thank you!

Your gift provides hope and healing to thousands of animals arriving at DCHS during their greatest times of need. Thank you for choosing DCHS to honor your loved one, while supporting lifesaving work at DCHS.
