Delaware Humane Association (DHA) is so proud to have expanded our services to the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area. The Rehoboth adoption center, located in the Midway Plaza at 18675 Coastal Highway, allows individuals and families to adopt a cat or dog. Animals are readied for adoption (veterinary exam, age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered) at our Wilmington animal care center and transported to Rehoboth on a regular basis (so check back in frequently for new faces)! Additional programs and services are also available, including low-cost vaccination clinics and dog license sales. In time, DHA Rehoboth may offer dog obedience training classes and dog day care.
As Peggy Eddens, Board President shared, “This decision is the result of our strategic planning efforts and the combined thought leadership of our Board of Directors and Patrick Carroll, Executive Director of DHA. We are honored for the opportunity to bring our mission, Making Friends for Life, to Sussex County and to humbly serve that community. We are very grateful for the outpouring of support for this meaningful initiative.”
DHA’s goal is for Rehoboth to act more as a community center for those who share our love for animals. We value matching the right people with the right animals, offering a friendly and welcoming environment, empowering others to care for animals, and being kind, caring, and compassionate. Providing excellent medical care to the animals and building relationships in the community are also highly important. DHA has a long history of serving animals in Sussex County and looks forward to working in collaboration with other groups, such as the Delaware SPCA, Brandywine Valley SPCA, First State Animal Center & SPCA, as well as many cat rescue groups, and is eager to strengthen and build relationships with adopters, supporters and local businesses.
DHA Rehoboth is always seeking volunteers who support our mission, Making Friends for Life, and who will help with care of the animals, adoptions, transport and fostering. Visit our volunteer page to learn more!
