Founded in 1957, the Delaware Humane Association (DHA) is a non-profit no kill animal shelter and adoption center that serves a four state area. The Delaware Human Association is responsible for providing shelter and care for over 5,000 cats and dogs through direct intervention.
Each year, hundreds of animals come under the care of DHA. The Delaware Humane Association maintains spay/neutering services, vaccinations clinics and a pet food pantry. They receive no government funding and rely solely on the support of the community in the form of private donations, volunteers, grants, bequests, fund raising events and the Guardian Angel program. DHA practices a philosophy of ethical and humane care for all living creatures.
