We are available during limited hours, appointments are required.

Please call ahead, messages will be returned.


Watch our website, Facebook and Instagram for updates.

During this time The Humane Society of Delaware County will still be here for the community to provide essential animal care by appointment only. These measures are necessary to keep our staff healthy, so we can continue to provide quality care to the animals.
Unfortunately, this means that we are not able to provide the Tuesday morning wellness clinic until further notice. Likewise, the shelter is closed to casual visitation of the animals. 
During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, staff will be working limited hours and days. Please call prior to traveling to our shelter, ensuring we can meet your needs. Thank you for your patience as we all work through this new and changing time. Thank you.

The Humane Society of Delaware County is funded by donations from the community, fundraisers, corporate partnerships and grant funds. The HSDC does not receive any of your tax dollars. Your contributions are sincerely appreciated. 

Thank you.

Featured Pet
6 year old 

This is our Fluffball. This uniquely colored tuxedo kitty came to us as a stray after she showed up on someone’s doorstep in March. She was posted on PetFBI, but her owner was not found. She was very good with the boys of the home who were seven and 10. She was not aggressive with the other outside kitties at the home, but they were not happy to have her there. Fluffball also enjoyed the company of another Tranquility Room cat until she was adopted. She is very food motivated, makes wonderful biscuits, and “purrs up a storm!” Fluffball has some beautiful brown in her coat which could be from the sun or a mix of seal point brown. She is going to be one beautiful longhair beauty after a couple of months of good food and love.

Fluffball has been with us since May 2020
