Humane Animal Partners, the state’s first animal welfare organization, has provided shelter, veterinary care, and adoption services for over a century. Each year, Humane Animal Partners places thousands of animals into loving homes, many of whom required urgent care and medical attention when they came to us. We are also a leading provider of low cost spay/neuter services, have a state-of-the-art wellness clinic for community pets, and offer regular, low-cost vaccination clinics.

Adoption Services

Since our founding, Humane Animal Partners has found new, loving homes for tens of thousands of homeless animals. Our 3 adoption centers are locations in Wilmington, Stanton/Christiana, and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Our team of experienced adoption counselors work one on one with adopters to make the best match possible for our animals, as well as you and your family. All adoptions are conducted thoughtfully, transparently, and with respect.dogs.

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

Humane Animal Partners provides low-cost spay/neuter services to the public in our state-of-the-art clinic. We offer financial assistance to rescue groups for the spaying/neutering of pets or community cats to prevent countless numbers of unwanted and homeless animals.

Low-Cost wellness Care

Humane Animal Partners’ low-cost Wellness Clinic opened in 2015 at Stanton/Christiana to help families keep their pets healthy, reduce the number of animals coming into shelters, and avoid preventable suffering or euthanasia. Pets are afforded personalized care through appointments with our on-staff veterinarian.

Free Pet Food Pantry

Our Pet Food Pantry was created to help members of our community who need extra assistance caring for their pets. Our goal is simple: to help pet owners keep their pets in their homes, and to reduce the number of animals surrendered to shelters for financial reasons.
