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.


Female | 3 years | Coonhound, Black and Tan • Mix


***** Marigold has been with us longer than we would like so she is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and her adoption fee has been reduced to $300. *****

Name: Marigold

Age: 3 years

Weight (approx.): 63 lbs

Personality: Well hello, I'm Marigold! And I am a lovely lady with a heart of, you guessed it, GOLD! Some things to know about me include: I love playing, running, and all the attention on me! So much so, that I'll need to be the only pet in your home. Small cats and critters look a bit like toys to me, so my ideal home wouldn't have any of those. I like my space as much as I love treats, and sometimes kids can spook me. I hope to find a family that is TEENS+ that will teach me all the ropes of being an awesome dog!!

Medical History: I am a healthy dog and I should get in to see my vet soon after adoption.

Adoption Fee: $300 +tax
