Celebrate a new dog care facility opening up right here in Wilmington
Join us in making friends for life with a brand new dog care facility opening in Wilmington, DE! We will be at The Dog Stop's grand opening event on Saturday, May 30th with adoptable dogs and answers to any questions you might have about DHA!

Get involved--become a DHA Special Events Committee Volunteer!
We are looking for enthusiastic, creative, strong (lugging objects), and/or very detailed individuals who would like to join our Special Events team! We have a great group of volunteers, but we can always use new ideas and people to help with upcoming events.

Plates for Paws--eat well, save money and help animals
The Veterinarian Fund, Restaurant.com and Delaware Humane Association are teaming up to help you do all three with the Plates for Paws promotion! Now through July 5th, donate $20 and get a free eGift Card for the restaurant of your choice, valued at $50! Half of your donation ($10) will go to DHA to pay for the care for our animals while they wait for forever homes.

Together, we are changing their story from rags to riches
Every day, DHA encounters the same sad stories, and every day, we hope that at least one of our abandoned, injured, sick animals will "go from rags to riches." The real challenge is that we do not have the resources and capacity to produce TV commercials, or to provide thank you gifts like t-shirts or pictures of our animals. However, our animals need the same type of help and support.

Come "Stuff the Truck" to help the animals at DHA
Help us stuff the truck with food and supplies to help care for DHA's animals and make their days brighter this Sunday, May 17th, from 11 am to 3 pm at the Concord Pet Foods and Supplies store at Chestnut Run Shopping Center during their 20% off anniversary sale!

Get involved--become a DHA community events volunteer!
We are grateful for the various opportunities DHA has to promote our animals and services to the community. Sometimes, there are more events than we can manage with just our staff, or multiple events at the same time. We are looking for volunteers who can help represent DHA at our information table at community events.

Volunteers needed for State Animal Response Team
The Delaware Animal Response (DAR) Program, which is managed by the Office of Animal Welfare, is now recruiting volunteers for a State Animal Response Team (SART). The SART team is an exciting way to help animals and people in need during emergencies and disasters.
