The Delaware Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a private non-profit organization incorporated in 1873. The Delaware SPCA has contracts with the City of Wilmington to enforce dog control laws and we enforce the animal cruelty statutes under our charter. A full range of animal health, rescue, education and adoption services are available to Delaware residents.
Adopting a friend
All adoptions are at the discretion of the Delaware SPCA, and approval of a pre-adoption application. Adoptions across state lines are dependent on breed, species and relevant state and federal laws.
