Pets Need Best Friends, Too


A best friend is someone who is loyal, makes you laugh, and someone you can love forever; Delaware Humane Association (DHA) wants to give you a new best friend.

DHA hosts a Pet Adoption Fair at Christiana Mall for future pet owners to adopt cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies, all looking to give their love to someone. All the animals have been spayed or neutered, tested for FIV/FeLV (cats), tested for heartworms (dogs), vaccinated, microchipped, examined by veterinarian, and exercised/socialized daily.

Same-day adoptions of cats are available for qualified applicants. Applicants wishing to complete their adoption at the store should provide proof of address, proof of home ownership or written permission from their landlord, and proof of current vaccinations and spaying/neutering of their current pets (if applicable). All principle family members should be present at the time of the adoption. Pre-adoption applicants will be accepted for dogs onsite, but qualified applicants are required to schedule a follow-up appointment.

If you cannot make the event then you can view the adoptable pets online, or come to the shelter. Visit the website for more information. Don?t miss the chance to add a new member to the family, and a new best friend.
