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 Tuesday - Saturday. All pets have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Spay/Neuter Clinics

We provide high-quality, low-cost neutering services at our clinic in Christiana Please call us for more information or visit Special programs available for people receiving public assistance.

Vaccination Clinics

Bi-monthly low-cost vaccination clinics are held in New Castle county. Rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccinations are available, as well as microchipping. Visit for upcoming dates and details.

This work is only possible through the support of the community.
