Animal control in Delaware goes through changes
There's nothing As you may already be aware, animal control in Delaware is going through a period of transition. On September 15th, the Delaware Division of Public Health/Office of Animal Welfare's new enforcement unit, Delaware Animal Services, assumed management of statewide animal cruelty enforcement and rabies control. Local animal control services still will be managed by New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties, as well as the city of Wilmington, until their contracts with an outside provider expire.

Rubber Duck Race makes winners out of duck "adopters" and the animals at DHA
We had a great time at the Rubber Duck Race last night! We sold a total of 8,527 ducks (95% of our goal)... how awesome is that? A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who "adopted" ducks, and the many people who gave their time as volunteers. Congratulations to our winners!

They saved his ear, we saved his life
In 2014, we revealed our revised branding, which included our new logo and tagline, "Making Friends for Life." We continue to live that out every day, as we focus on building relationships, increasing adoptions, and getting to know our supporters better... Since December, thanks to our new medical department, we are fortunate to have been able to address some severe medical issues of more than 30 animals, which truly saved their lives.
