The Delaware Humane Association is able to offer a $50 adoption fee discount to senior citizens thanks to support from The Pets for the Elderly Foundation (PFE), a nonprofit organization that helps provide the gift of health and happiness to senior citizens while saving the lives of cats and dogs.
The most serious disease for older persons is not always cancer or heart disease—it can be loneliness. Pets offer affection, unconditional love, relief from loneliness, and can help ease the loss of a loved one.
PFE helps pay the fees to participating animal shelters throughout the United States for senior citizens who adopt a companion dog or cat from a participating shelter. Starting in 2006, DHA became the first (and only) organization in Delaware to participate in the PFE program.
Please help the Delaware Humane Association find a home for Colt.
“My name is Colt and I am an adult neutered male British Shorthair cat. I am a shy but sweet guy who came here after being found as a stray. I need a new home with someone who will give me lots of TLC, and time to relax and show you my great purrrrsonality. Wouldn’t you love to come home to a handsome fellow like me? Please come meet me and give me a chance to charm you!”
I am a handsome young adult neutered male Orange Tabby. Before I came here, I was living at a local industrial shop just your typical rough and tumble junkyard cat. With dangerous equipment around it was not the best place for a cat to live, and I was not getting enough food, clean water, vet care or attention. A DHA volunteer who worked nearby agreed to take me in as a foster pet to prepare me for a second chance at a real home. She gave me lots of TLC and over time I got healthy and started to enjoy living the good life. I would even go for walks outside with a harness and leash. I love to play (one of these days I am going to catch that little red laser dot!) and can be talkative, too. I am independent, but enjoy being around people. I enjoy getting attention (especially head scratching) and do not mind being held for a little while sometimes. I have not been around other cats much yet, but if you have a dog, no problem, they are OK by me. Please come meet me and give me a chance to charm you! I really want to be back in a home of my own with someone to love me.
This wonderful gal is Angel! She was surrendered with her friend Max because their owner was moving. She is about 3 years old and is reported to get along well with other dogs and even lived with birds! Can you open your heart and home to Angel (& Max too if you want!)

I am a Terrier/Labrador Retriever Mix neutered male. I’m a handsome guy who is in looking for a loving forever home. I was adopted many years ago, but returned because my family’s living situation changed. I can be a little reserved at first, but once I get to know you I love to give kisses. I would do best in a home with no other dogs so I can be the center of attention. To learn more about me or to schedule an appointment to meet me (I’m available to be seen by appointment only) call Delaware Humane Association at 302-571-0111 or go to www.dehumane.org
I am a Domestic Medium Hair-Orange Mix neutered adult male. My name is Sunny and I am 6 years old. I came to DHA with my sister Luna after a neighbor found out we were not being cared for. Thankfully she brought us here. We were so neglected we almost died. But now we are her waiting for you to give us the home we always wanted.

This young brown and white tabby named Waffles is ready to find a new home today. Waffles has dreamed of the comforts of a home since she’s been homeless, since March. Waffles is very responsive to people’s voices and loves affection. She’s very low maintenance; she just wants a home with food, love and a warm spot to nap. This stunning beauty with piercing golden green eyes can’t wait to meet you! Waffles’ adoption fee, typically $80, is just $40 throughout the month of August at the Delco SPCA, which includes her spay surgery, necessary vaccinations, a microchip, a vet visit and a bag of food — but hurry in; this feline special is ending soon! Consider adopting her with a feline friend and get the second cat at no adoption fee.
