Most 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. Adoption visits are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

As a DCHS member, you will change the lives of animals in our community and your commitment will help us save more lives every year.

Members can also receive exclusive benefits while supporting the shelter. Membership offers valuable discounts to shelter programs and events, discounts at Madison area businesses and much more!
