WHO WE ARE

Serving the Denton County communities since 1972

DHS is a private, not-for-profit 501c(3) organization for the purpose of improving the lives of animals in Denton County. DHS is committed to kindness and compassion for all living beings. We do not receive any city, county, state or federal funding. Our financial needs are met entirely through donations, adoptions, grants, and fund-raising events. Other than two part-time employees who manage day-to-day operations and field phone requests, DHS is run strictly by volunteers.

  • Comprehensive medical and behavioral services for all animals in our care.
