Almost all 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.

Community Dog Day events are held in targeted neighborhoods where DCHS has seen the highest intake of stray dogs, providing supplies and resources to those in these neighborhoods in need. The goals are to reduce the number of stray dogs in the neighborhood, increase the number of stray dogs that are reunited with their families and help those struggling economically keep their pets happy in their own home.

Contact PFL at (608) 513-4262 (call or text) or reach us at the DCHS main shelter at (608) 838-0413 ext. 217 with questions.
