Make a Donation to DHA

For over 50 years, the Delaware Humane Association has operated as a non-federally funded, private nonprofit organization serving a four-state area and beyond.

While in DHA’s care more than two thousand cats and dogs every year receive food, shelter, medical care, and lots of love and attention during their stay. DHA is a no kill shelter that does not euthanize animals to make room for others.

DHA also supports animals and their guardians in our community by offering affordable spay/neuter services, low cost vaccinations and microchipping, monthly vaccination clinics, and maintaining a pet food pantry for those in need.

DHA’s programs are funded with support of the community in the form of private donations, fees-for-service, grants, and fundraising events. Please donate today and help us continue to provide quality services and fulfill our mission.

Your gift will provide safe shelter, spay and neuter services and medical care to abandoned animals. Staff and volunteers will turn your generosity into loving, lifesaving care for every animal that comes through our doors. We can’t do this alone. Please make a gift today!
