Delaware Office of Animal Welfare


Donate Funds

Although Delaware Animal Services is a state-funded program, private donations allow us to provide resources for special needs and projects that are outside the regular operating budget. These contributions will be used to improve the lives of animals in need, assist pet owners struggling to care for their pets, and to prevent homelessness and neglect in Delaware.

Your Gift Stays Local

You can rest assured that any donation you make to Delaware Animal Services helps animals and people right here in our own community.

Tax-deductible donations can be sent to:

Delaware Office of Animal Welfare
H150 – Carvel Building Lower Level
1901 North Dupont Highway
New Castle, DE 19720

Donate Goods

Donations of supplies will be used by our Animal Welfare Officers to help pet owners who are struggling in our community, improving the wellbeing of the animals and preventing neglect and homelessness. All donations will be used locally to directly help pets and their owners throughout Delaware.
