Adopting a Pet in New Castle County, Delaware

Are you thinking about adopting or fostering a pet from an animal shelter in New Castle County, Delaware?  You are?!  That’s great!!  If you’re ready to be a responsible and loving pet owner, then you should visit Faithful Friends Animal Society.   Faithful Friends is a non-profit, No Kill shelter that does not euthanize animals to make space for others.  All cats and dogs in their care stay with them until forever homes are found.   Programs and services include rescue and adoption, healthy pet clinics, spay/neuter clinics, free pet food and supply bank, pet therapy services, and community outreach.

In addition to Faithful Friends, some other animal shelters to consider in New Castle County are Forgotten Cats, Inc., Delaware Humane Association, and Delaware SPCA.   The Petfinder web site is another good source of finding your new pet, and it provides helpful resources on pet care and pet adoption.  Please visit these shelters and Petfinder to learn more about their adoptable cats and dogs, volunteer opportunities and ways to donate.
