Is Delaware Animal Welfare moving in the right direction to save more animals? Here are the statewide Statistics starting in 2006. You can see that with the passage of the State's Shelter Standards Law in 2010, that the door to help animals was closed to many animals. Where are those animals?

To achieve a No Kill State we must have resources for providing all animals with safe places.  These places must be located throughout the State to give our human residents resources in their neighborhoods.  The Safe places can then help the animals find temporary placements until forever homes are located.  Shelters should never be used to house animals long term.

Lets help animals together.
