Mission Statement

The Mission of the Delaware SPCA is to prevent animal cruelty, homelessness and neglect and to promote the humane treatment of animals in the State of Delaware.


The Delaware SPCA is a private non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of cruelty and the encouragement of humane treatment of all animals. Established in 1873, Delaware SPCA is the oldest animal welfare organization in the state and has provided continuous service to pets and their companions for more than 140 years.

We operate many programs to service our community including:


We have plenty of great dogs and cats available for adoption. Visit either shelter location to find your new best friend. We are open Monday - Saturday. All pets have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Adoption fees also includes a free first visit with a participating veterinarian.

Cruelty Investigation

The Delaware SPCA investigates reports of animal cruelty in New Castle and Sussex Counties. If you see abuse or neglect of an animal, report by calling (302) 998-2281 in New Castle County or (302) 856-6361 in Sussex County.

Spay/Neuter Clinics

We provide high-quality, low-cost neutering services at our clinics in Georgetown and Stanton. Please call us for more information or visit www.delspca.org. Special programs available for people receiving public assistance.

Vaccination Clinics

Monthly low-cost vaccination clinics are held in New Castle and Sussex counties. Rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccinations are available, as well as microchipping. Visit www.delspca.org for upcoming dates and details.

This work is only possible through the support of the community and concerned citizens like you.
