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.


Dog | Male | Age: 11 | Boxer mix | Spayed/Neutered | Up-to-date on vaccinations

Gus is very loving and energetic. He loves attention and likes to run and play.

Other Animals
We’ve never had any other permanent pets but have had other animals in the house from time to time without major problems. As he’s gotten older he tends to be grumpier around other dogs we see on walks, but usually warms up after he gives them a good sniff.

Medical History
No major medical issues. He is caught up on vaccines and is neutered. He’s getting older and has a paw that bothers him sometimes but nothing the vet sees as structural.

Ideal Home
Somewhere he can run and play outside. We moved a few years ago to a house without a fenced in yard, and as our kids have gotten older he has started to run away a lot because he has so much energy and we aren’t able to give him the freedom to run anymore.

Other Information
Gus is a great dog and he deserves to be in a home that can give him what he needs.
