Important Note

Heinz is best friends with Hazel. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Meet Heinz! This nervous nellie came in with 10 other Chihuahua mixes; many of which are quite nervous (like him). He is very attached to his little buddy Hazel and they make each other feel comfortable, so we are urging them to be adopted together. They are very scared of the loud shelter environment, so scared that they tremble nonstop in their kennel. We know they would absolutely thrive in a home! Plus, once they get used to you, they are lively, bouncy, funny and absolute love bugs. They just need that chance to show you! Won't you come visit them a few times to show them it's ok to be themselves with you?!

About Our Shelter...

Founded in 1957, Delaware Humane Association (DHA) is Delaware’s premiere nonprofit no kill animal care and adoption center, serving a four state area. We are committed to providing for the needs of homeless and owned dogs and cats in our community.

We rely on volunteers and donations to complete our mission and provide quality services to the community, including pet adoptions, affordable spay and neuter surgery, low cost vaccination / microchipping clinics, a pet food pantry, and more.


We make "friends for life" by connecting people with animals, and by building strong relationships to better serve our community.


We envision a day when every animal is loved, has a home, and has a "friend for life."


At DHA, we make "friends for life" by:

* Matching the right people with the right animals
* Offering a friendly, welcoming environment
* Empowering others to care for animals
* Being kind, caring and compassionate
