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.

Provide a home for animals too young to be adopted, pregnant or new moms, those in need of extra socialization, those overly stressed at the shelter and those recovering from illness or injury.
