Delaware Humane Association’s (DHA) Rehoboth Beach 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 the “Tailroad Express” 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.
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, collaborating with other animal rescue groups. It’s important to us that we continue to strengthen and build relationships with adopters, supporters and local businesses all throughout the Delaware regions.
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 on the “Tailroad Express” and fostering. Visit our volunteer page to learn more!
