About DCHS

 Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide shelter and basic needs to Dawson County's homeless dogs and cats.

  Statement of Purpose
We will evaluate potentially adoptable animals, improve their health and physical appearance, and provide suitable forums for their adoption.  We will provide a humane death for non-adoptable animals in a timely manner.  We will spay or neuter, when appropriate, all adoptable dogs and cats prior to adoption.  We will educate the general public as to humane animal care.

Our Shelter
 
We are very proud of the hard work and sacrifice that enabled us to build our humane society facility.  The founders of our organization had a vision that became a reality in April 2008, and we now provide a safe haven to adoptable dogs and cats as they await their "forever homes."

Shelter Hours:  Tuesday-Friday 11:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Saturday 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.; Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.; closed to the public Mondays.
