Purpose of the Organization

Dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals in our community and finding permanent and loving adoptive homes for the animals in our care. Promotes the humane treatment of animals and operates as a no-kill facility, a philosophy that has been with the organization from the beginning. We do not forfeit the life of one animal to make space for another. All incoming animals are evaluated, medically treated and rehabilitated when possible. DCHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on the goodwill and generosity of individuals and corporations.
