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 | 1 years | Boxer • Hound


Name: Happy

Age: 1.5 years

Weight: ~68 lbs

Personality: If you're happy and you know it... come meet me! I know I'm Happy and would love to meet you! I'm a very active boy looking for an active family to go along with me. I'm still learning my manners and would benefit from positive reinforcement training. And sometimes I get a little too excited around cats and critters, so I should go to a home without them. So if you want some happiness in your life, come on down!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy adult dog but it's always a good idea to set up an appointment with my new vet shortly after adoption so I can meet my new doctor!

Adoption Fee: $350+tax
