About Delaware Humane Association

The Delaware Humane Association offers pet adoptions to veterans through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friend. Founded in 1957, the Delaware Humane Association is its state’s first no-kill animal shelter and adoption center. As part of its commitment to responsible pet ownership and education, the Delaware Humane Association offers low-cost vaccination and wellness clinics, affordable spay/neuter services and various educational workshops.

The Delaware Humane Association offers several programs in support of the person-pet bond. In cooperation with community partners, it offers age- and skill-specific dog obedience training classes and participates in an innovative, nationwide Pets for the Elderly program, providing adoption fee discounts and other benefits to individuals who qualify.

The Delaware Humane Association welcomes monetary donations, in addition to a wide range of pet and cleaning supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands-on experience, consider becoming one of their valued volunteers or a pet foster.

Adoption fees include:

Heartworm test (dogs), FIV/feline leukemia (cats)
Species-appropriate vaccinations
Microchip for permanent identification
Veterinary examination
