Technical Difficulties

Oh No! We are experiencing some intermittent technical difficulties with our computer system, which is causing some irregularities on our adoptions webpages.

CHS Alum Patch

CHS Alum, Patch

Patch joined our family in February after 217 long days of waiting. He has fit right into our family and is the friendliest, happiest dog. He loves to keep us company whenever he can, and especially loves car rides, camping, canoeing, and leading the way on hikes! We are so lucky to get to share our lives with such an awesome guy.
