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.


Male | 13 years | Domestic Shorthair • Mix


Name: Dewey

Age: Senior (13 years)

Weight (approx.): 17 lbs

Personality: Purr.. Well hello there. I'm Dewey, it's so wonderful to meet you. I'm a cool, fun loving senior guy looking for a relaxing home to spend my golden years. My favorite things are cuddling up on my favorite people's laps, snoozing in the sun, and munching on treats. Do I sound like the one for you? Come and ask about me today.

Medical History: I am a senior guy, and I am a bit overweight at this time. There were some times in my previous home where I didn't have a clean enough litterbox to feel comfortable using it. This is easily manageable though. Other than that, I appear to be a healthy senior guy, but it's always a good idea to schedule a follow up visit with your vet shortly after adoption.

Adoption Fee: $30 +tax
