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 | 2 years | Terrier, Pit Bull • Mix


***** Link has some special health needs so he is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and his adoption fee has been reduced to $250. *****

Name: Link

Age: ~3 Years

Weight: 70 lbs

Personality: Oh hi, I'm Link and I am looking for a nice place to relax with a loving and patient family! I've been busy learning about walking on a leash, meeting people and other dogs and have been loving it all! I would love to show you all my new impressive doggie skills! I am looking forward to plenty of snacks (did someone say hotdogs???) and outdoor adventures with my new family! If I sound like I might be the hero to join your family come meet me soon!

Medical History: I tested positive for heartworm when I arrived at the shelter lately. My treatment has already begun with some antibiotics which will be followed up with a couple of shots a month apart to clear up my system. DCHS will be welcoming me back for those vet visits and covering that cost, so long as I get scheduled for them within a few weeks of adoption. If you have any questions about my heartworm treatment feel free to reach out to the Adoptions center at 608-838-0413 ex 145.

Adoption Fee: $250+ tax
