Helping Hands Club

Lend a hand to help us save lives!

With your support, we never have to say no to animals in need simply because funds are not available.

Helping Hands Club past beneficiaries

During the spring and summer months many orphaned or abandoned puppies and kittens are brought to the shelter. Due to their age and environmental conditions, many of these young animals are in need of special medical care to help them to become healthy and adoptable. In addition, dogs and cats of all ages come to us throughout the year with a variety of medical care special needs.

If you would like to help us to save more lives, consider signing up to become a member of DHA’s Helping Hands Club. As a member of the Helping Hands Club, your name will be placed on a special list of people willing to assist when an animal emergency arises. When needed, you will be contacted and will learn about the animal in need of your support.

Club members will be asked to send $50 or more to help us care for a specific animal in need. Members typically are not contacted more than twice a year, but you don't have to wait for a medical special need to arise. You can also choose to make a one time or recurring donation of $15 or more.

If you would be willing to become a member of the Helping Hands Club, send your name, address and phone number to helpinghands@dehumane.org, or mail the information to:

Delaware Humane Association
701 A Street
Wilmington, DE 19801
