New shelter construction update
Now that spring has arrived, the pace is picking up as construction continues on DHA's new shelter. We wanted to share a bunch of new photos (and a short video) of the progress that has been taking place over the past few weeks, including concrete foundations being poured and walls starting to go up!

In memory of our dear friend and co-worker, Sandy Leigh
This week we were deeply saddened to lose our good friend and co-worker, Sandy Leigh. Sandy was our part-time Administrative Assistant for more than 10 years.

Delaware Humane Association unveils a brand new look
DHA is becoming "like brand new" in many ways this year. Construction is well under way on our new shelter, and a brand new "look" and slogan for the organization was introduced during the Muttini Mixer fundraiser on March 29th.

DHA is their pot of gold
As legend has it, a pot of gold can only be found at the end of a rainbow. But for all of the animals in DHA's care, we are their pot of gold, and with your help, we can continue to be their pot of gold and change their luck forever. Taz, Pookie, Pearl, and Pretty Girl are just four of the animals' lives that DHA has changed.

Please help us keep their bowls full (again!)
Giving the animals in our shelter the best care possible is a priority at DHA. Keeping enough canned cat food on hand to supplement dry food can be a challenge when working with a limited budget. So, we are reaching out for your help keeping our shelves stocked.
