Dessin Animal Shelter is a private, nonprofit organization, founded in 1968 by mother and daughter, Olga and Dorothea Dessin. Since its beginning, our small, rural shelter has been a means of survival for thousands of unwanted animals that have been abandoned or surrendered for a variety of reasons. 

As a 501 (c) 3 status non-profit the organization is funded by donations from our supporters and fundraisers arranged by the board of directors, staff and volunteers. We take our commitment to helping and caring for these animals very seriously. It is our goal to provide them with the best possible comfort and care while they are in our shelter. Nearly 600 animals will receive their second and forever homes through Dessin!
