Faithful Friends Animal Society Animal shelter in Wilmington, DE

Faithful Friends was founded in 2000, as Citizens for the Protection and Care of Animals, by a group of local animal lovers who believe there is a better way to address the problem of pet homelessness than mass euthanasia.

Currently, about 25,000 pets become homeless in Delaware and over 15,000 are destroyed in Delaware's publicly funded shelters. The vast majority of these pets are destroyed because there are no homes for them immediately available. And these numbers do not take into account the thousands of homeless cats that huddle near dumpsters, living in fear.

Pet overpopulation and homelessness is a community problem, not a shelter problem. It takes a unified effort within the community to solve the problem and to do so in a humane, effective manner. We hope you will join this effort!

Our Mission
Ending the routine killing of dogs and cats through rescue and adoption of homeless pets, affordable spay/neuter programs that target the neediest pet owners in our community, and outreach programs that prevent pet owner relinquishments.

Our Vision
That Delaware will become a state that cares for and protects animal companions, eliminating abuse, neglect and the routine killing of homeless pets.

Our Goals
Significantly increase adoptions of homeless pets by building a state-of-the-art Adoption Center that provides medical care and a homelike setting where dogs and cats can live free of stress and fear until new homes are found for them.

Provide care options for homeless pets that need more time and training to become adopted or who need lifetime care by creating a Sanctuary in Delaware. Here, animals who are difficult to place in homes because of age, illness or temperament can live out their natural lives in safety.

Create therapeutic programs that bring animals and their gifts of unconditional love, companionship and healing to children and the elderly in residential facilities who suffer from isolation, depression or the effects of abuse or illness.

Reduce overpopulation by providing spay/neuter programs which target the neediest pet owners and feral/stray cats.

Reduce pet relinquishments to shelters by offering support, training and alternatives to owner give-ups.
