Our 24th annual Strut Your Mutt is one of the only dog friendly walks in the area. This year we are expanding our walk by inviting vendors and exhibitors. Join us to promote awareness, create memories, and raise funds for over 2500 animals the DRHS cares of each year.  (You do not need to bring a pet to participate).

Kids & Critter Camp

K ids entering second through sixth grades can spend their summer afternoons learning all about animals, participating in activities and seeing demonstrations by local experts. Campers make friends, have fun with arts and crafts and have hands on time with animals at the DRHS.

Thank you to our Scholarship Sponsor: Fidelity Bank & Trust

Easter Candy

Keep lilies and candy in check - chocolate goodies are toxic to cats and dogs, and all true lilies can be fatal if ingested by cats. And be mindful, kitties love to nibble on colorful plastic grass, which can lead to an obstructed digestive tract, severe vomiting and dehydration.
