animals are checked by a veterinarian, vaccinated and spayed or neutered before
adoption (unless they are too young), ensuring that they will not add to the
homeless pet crisis. As a no-kill
facility, our residents remain in our care until they find a forever home,
however long that may take. This means
we can only take in animals when there is room so admission is limited. We do not have employees which is why we show
animals by appointment or at special adoption events. If you wish to make an appointment, please
call our toll free pager number 1- (877) 802-1633 or send an email to
The Wilmington Area Humane Society relies on donations and fundraisers to operate. No funding is received from government entities.
WAHS raises money for the care of the animals that we take in. All donations to assist WAHS will be greatly appreciated, and we hope we can count on the community to help the homeless pets. Several events are held annually to raise needed funds. All donations will be greatly appreciated.
