Important Note

Nyla is best friends with Baby Boy. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Meet Nyla & Baby Boy! Nyla is around 13-years-old, currently weighs 8lbs and was brought to DHA, with her grandchild Baby Boy, when their owners no longer had time for them. Baby Boy is around 5-years-old, currently weighs 6lbs. They sometimes give a little nervous bark when they first see you, but once you're down on their level saying hi, they're all about love! At this time, we are not yet sure how they are with other dogs, cats or kids. As we get to know them, we will let you know. Is this pair tugging at your heart strings yet? Spend some time with them today!

Nyla & Baby Boy MUST be adopted together! They are temporarily unavailable, but are still able to have applications submitted once you've met. For more information or inquires about meeting Nyla, please give us a call at (302) 571-0111 or visit us at our center (701 A Street Wilmington, DE) Tuesday-Friday 12-7pm or Saturday & Sunday 12-5pm.

About Delaware Humane Association

About Our Shelter...

Delaware Humane Association logo

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
