Clear The Shelters™ 2021 – DHA Wilmington

August 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - September 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Help pets find loving, forever homes! Starting August 23rd, 2021 through September 19th, join NBC 10 Philadelphia and Telemundo 62 and help “Clear the Shelters™!” For the past few years, animal shelters across the country came together and nearly 20,000+ pets found loving new families each year. “Clear the Shelters™” is a nationwide pet adoption initiative that aims to connect animals in need with new homes.

Throughout this event, DHA is offering $25 off ALL adoptions, including puppies and kittens! Our ongoing specials will also still be valid: any animal waiting 3+ months from date of availability is half off and any animal waiting 6+ months from date of availability is automatically waived!

Additionally, we will be waiving ALL adoption fees of adult animals completely on September 18th ONLY (opening at     10am)! These specials are valid at Delaware Humane Association’s Wilmington and Rehoboth locations for approved adopters. Note: DHA will be CLOSED on September 19th!

Check out our website to see who could be your new fur-friend! Want to see what fabulous cats and dogs we have available? Head over to: delawarehumane.org/dogs or delawarehumane.org/cats.

  • All DHA animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm (dogs) or FeLV/FIV (cats) tested, microchipped, and examined by a veterinarian.
  • Adoption specials cannot be combined with other discounts, animals in foster or foster-to-adopt, or holds.
  • We are open for public visitation Tuesday – Sunday from 12 – 5 PM at both our Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach adoption centers.
  • Can’t adopt? Consider fostering a cat or dog who needs a break from shelter life! Submit your foster application today: delawarehumane.org/foster
  • Please note: The status of this event may also change in accordance with CDC guidelines. Thank you!


DON’T SEE WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR? Be sure to visit our colleagues at Delaware SPCA to check out all of their available dogs and cats! Delaware SPCA is currently running the same adoption promotion for Clear the Shelters™ as we are.
