Patches is young, about ten months old. He’s handsome with brindle markings and an infectious smile, which hasn’t wavered even as he sports the cone of shame. He was recently neutered and has been a good boy, wearing that cone like a pro.

We’ve not had a chance to test him with other dogs yet, but we know he’s as sweet as can be with all the humans. When you first meet Patches, he is cautious. He keeps his head lowered and gives you a sniff to decide his next move. If you’re calm, you’ll be treated to a little tail wag as he approaches to get petted. Then he’ll give you his puppy dog eyes to ask for a good scratch behind the ear!

Despite Patches’ shyness, he has a strong desire to please, making him a highly trainable pup. He’ll make a wonderful friend to anyone who understands a puppy needs regular exercise, playtime, and basic behavior training.

Patches is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated – all he needs is a home! Apply here: and visit us Monday – Friday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Can’t get to the shelter during open hours? Email for an appointment.

Wonder is a young male kitten who is calmer than his age indicates. His white coat has splotches of black, and his wide eyes observe everything. This cute boy has lived with two kittens from different litters and enjoyed their company in his foster home. Wonder is a loving kitten who likes to snuggle in your lap on the couch. During a meet and greet, Wonder showed off his acrobatic side and perched happily on a guest’s shoulder, surveying the cat condo from above!

Wonder is about three months old, neutered, and current on age-appropriate vaccinations. We’ve got more adorable kittens in foster care, including precious Victoria, the six remaining nutty kittens, and the nuts gorgeous mama Hazelnut.

A look back: It was 2014 when a group of volunteers and board members established a pub crawl in Downtown Danville to raise funds for the DBCHS. Pints For Pets has flourished since then. Over the last eight years, the fun-draiser has been one of the humane society’s biggest and most-anticipated events. Find out why and paw-ty with us at the 9th Annual Pints for Pets on October 22 – register now:! More historical highlights are coming your way as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of DBCHS.
