DHS does not have a facility. All of our animals are housed in foster homes. Therefore, we require having a completed adoption application on file before we ask our foster families to rearrange their schedules for a meet and greet or answer individual inquiries. And, please be patient, we are staffed only by volunteers. It may be a few days before you hear from us.
Richie is a sweet, active black Lab mix. He is playful and affectionate. He walks fairly well on a leash and loves his crate but still needs supervision inside as he never lived inside with a family before and doesn't know the rules. But, he is very eager to please and tries so hard to be a good boy. He will learn quickly because he wants to be loved. Ritchie is a slight heart worm positive. He has no symptoms and feels just fine. He is currently being treated and DHS will continue to fund his care even if adopted.
All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Since all of our animals are housed with fosters, we ask that you submit a completed application before we answer individual inquiries. Submitting an application never obligates you to adopt but we will have a better understanding of your needs so that we can better answer your questions.
