Celebrating 140 Years of Connecting People and Pets
The Delaware SPCA’s mission is to prevent animal cruelty, homelessness and neglect and to promote the humane treatment of animals in the State of Delaware. This year we celebrate 140 years of protecting animals, relying on local individual and corporate donations, and special events like this one.
Each year, we take in 3,000 animals and find them loving homes. We also respond to over 1,000 reports of animal cruelty, rescuing animals from abuse and neglect. And our high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinics provide affordable services to pet owners and rescue groups, ending homelessness at the source.
We are a life-saving organization, and do not euthanize to make space for other animals.
Contrary to popular belief, the Delaware SPCA does not receive operating funds from the state or county governments, nor do we receive money from a national animal welfare organization. Proceeds from Bark on the Boards provides critical funds to help needy animals in Delaware.
