Guardian Angel Program

There are plenty of angels, right here on Earth.

Guardian Angel Cat

You can be one of them by becoming a DHA Guardian Angel, providing financial support to a cat or dog in our shelter. Sponsorship is especially needed for our longer-term residents, such as older animals or those with medical or behavioral issues that make it harder to find them a home.

$15 will provide for the care and sheltering
of a cat or kitten for 1 month

$25 will provide for the care and sheltering
of a dog or puppy for 1 month

Dog with angel wingsWe ask our Guardian Angels to make a minimum three month commitment. You can continue for as long as you want.

Each Guardian Angel will receive a thank you letter and a photo of the DHA dog or cat you are helping. Guardian Angels who become longer-term sponsors will receive updates on their DHA pet twice a year.

Earn your halo and wings today by signing up to become a DHA Guardian Angel!

  2. Automatic checking or savings account deductions

    Automatic bank account deductions are a dependable, flexible, convenient, and easy way to make a recurring donation:

    • It saves time—fewer checks to write and mail.
    • Making a donation will be convenient and time-friendly—even if you’re on vacation or out of town.
    • It saves postage—many people spend close to $100 per year on postage.
    • It’s easy to sign up for, easy to cancel.

    You won’t have to change your present banking relationship to take advantage of this service, just authorize regularly scheduled donations to be made from your checking or savings account. Then, just sit back and relax. Your donation will be made automatically on the specified day. Proof of your donation will appear on your statement. The authority you give to charge your account will remain in effect until you notify DHA in writing or terminate the authorization. To take advantage of this service, print and complete the authorization form.

    You can drop off the form at the shelter, fax to (302) 571-0745, or mail it to:
