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 | Shepherd • Mix


Name: Ditto

Age: 1 yr. old

Weight: ~ 57 lbs

Personality and Home Recommendations: Hello there, I'm Ditto! I would love to wiggle up to someone special this year. I wouldn't mind a cozy spot to warm up before running around outside at the local park. Once I warm up to you I might be a little rambunctious, only because I love you. Don't worry, I'm a great student and would excel in puppy class. Are you ready for a life full of fun and outdoor adventures?

Medical Needs: I am from the south where heartworms and other parasites are more common, so it is a good idea to keep me on preventatives and get me retested for heartworm in 6 months. I appear to be a healthy young adult, but it's always a good idea to set up an appointment with your vet soon after adoption so they can meet each other!

Adoption Fee: $350
