Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only, including reuniting lost animals, surrendering a pet, wildlife rehabilitation, and more. Adoption visits are first-come, first-served. We recommend checking our current waitlist prior to your visit.

***** Tanner has been with us longer than we would like so he is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and his adoption fee has been reduced to $100. *****

Name: Tanner

Age: Adult (1-6 yrs)

Weight (approx.): 62 lbs

Personality: Hi there! My name is Tanner and I can't wait to find a new family to love! I love to play and run and do all the things and can't wait to meet some new friends. I LOVE to play in the pool and splash in the water!!! I participate in playgroups here at the shelter and I have so much fun with the other dogs, but the pool has to be removed because I will play in the water and ignore the other dogs. I'm still learning my manners, so I would love to find a family who will teach me fun new ways to be more polite when I meet new folks. My boisterousness may be too much for kids that haven't been around rowdy dogs. I bet training classes would be an awesome way to bond and learn together!

Medical History: I am a health adult dog and I should get in to see my new vet soon after adoption!

Adoption Fee: $100 +tax
