Since its inception in 2003, over 1,000 cats have been admitted and cured of ringworm, a highly-contagious fungus that can be transmitted across species, including to dogs and humans.
DCHS's cutting-edge ringworm treatment program is unique in our region and a national model for shelters across the country. The program is almost entirely run by dedicated volunteers in the F.I.T. Center which provides a quarantined, low-stress environment where cats are cured of ringworm and go on to be adopted into loving homes.
