Delaware Humane Assoc. provided free medical care to Rehoboth Beach community cats in June
DHA’s mobile medical unit traveled to Rehoboth Beach in June to provide spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations for over 60 cats at no cost thanks to funds raised by their annual Walk for the Animals at the Beach.
These vital services were provided at no cost as a way to give back to the community, and made possible by funds raised at DHA’s 8th Annual Walk for the Animals at the Beach, held on April 30th in Rehoboth Beach.
DHA would like to thank the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company Station 2 for providing a place to park the van, and all of our sponsors and supporters who raised money for the Walk.
In addition to annual visits to provide these services to the Sussex County area , DHA regularly offers low cost spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, and microchipping at their animal shelter and adoption center in Wilmington, and holds monthly Wellness Clinics in partnership with and on-site at Concord Pet Foods and Supplies stores throughout New Castle and Kent Counties. Low cost vaccinations and microchipping are available at these clinics.

Founded in 1957, the Delaware Humane Association (DHA) is Delaware’s first no kill animal shelter and adoption center. We are committed to providing for the needs of homeless dogs and cats in our community. Serving over 5,000 companion animals annually through direct intervention and many more through advocacy, we continue to promote the humane values of protection, care, and compassion for all living things. We envision a future where all people and their pets live healthy, happy and long lives together.
Our mission is to act as a voice for companion animals and to enhance their welfare by providing temporary shelter, low cost spay/neuter services, vaccination clinics, humane education programs, and adoption/placement resources. We rely on the support of the community in the form of volunteers, donations, bequests, and fundraising events.
