Our Featured Pets...
|Mr. Pringles, a German Shepherd/Collie mix!|
|Ally, a young Pit Bull Terrier mix!|
Chain-link fence repair is something our shelter desperately needs! There is an outside, fenced-in area that we use to let our dogs run and play freely in, but unfortunately, they have figured out a way to dig under and escape! Sadly, we now keep the dogs inside their indoor kennels 24/7 because it is too dangerous for them to go outside. Also, some of our indoor kennels are in need of repair as well, so if you have the skills and resources and want to help, please let us know!
We are always in need of donations to make our resident cats' and dogs' lives a little happier and more comfortable while they're with us. If you would like to help our little organization, donations of cat and dog food, cat and dog toys, old blankets and towels, cleaning supplies, etc., are greatly needed. As always, your donations are tax-deductible and we thank you (and so do our furry, four-legged residents) for anything you can offer.
Pepper and Salty, our Llasa Apso mixes that were found together, went home together with a wonderful new family in Maryland!
Butterscotch, our young Yellow Lab mix, went home with his new owner a few weeks ago.
Bear, our senior Golden Retriever mix has a new family! Bear was left behind at our shelter along with a cat and a hand-written note which said his owner had gotten sick and was no longer able to care for them. That was six months ago...
Not many people would consider an 11-year-old dog as a new pet for their family, but thanks to Petfinder's service and a wonderful family in Wilmington, Bear was adopted only a week after he was listed!

Who We Are
We are a non-profit group in Laurel, Delaware, and our mission is:
- All breed rescue referral
- To provide shelter in the form of a dog or cat house for any animal that is in danger from the elements.
- To provide some type of nutritional supplement to any pet that is being neglected.
- To help transfer any pet of a homebound senior citizen to and from the veterinarian.
- To help provide care and make future plans for the pets of any terminally ill person.
- To help provide some assistance for spaying/neutering for owners who cannot afford it.
We are always in need of: blankets, pillows, food, shampoos, vitamins, bleach, laundry powder, newspapers, etc.
Adopting a Friend
If you see a pet that you are interested in, please contact us. We will mail you a contract, and then we'll set up a date and time for you to come visit with the animal. We will then send the animal home with you for the weekend to see if this pet is a good match for both you and your chosen companion, and to see how well it will fit into your life.
Adoption fees are $30 for dogs and puppies, $20 for adult cats and $10 for kittens.
Requirements for New Owners:
If you are serious about adopting your chosen pet, Delaware Animal Aid has a few requirements that you need to follow:
- If you adopt a dog or puppy, you must have a fenced yard for it to roam freely and get the exercise it needs.
- No dogs are to be kept outside restrained by a chain or rope!
- All dogs and puppies are to be given a heartworm preventative for the rest of their lives.
- Cats must be indoor-only housecats.
For your protection as well as the animal's, all pets will have been spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
Come Visit Us!
Our rescue is run from home. If you see an animal that you like, contact us and we will set up a date and time for you to visit and get to know your chosen companion.
