Welcome to the Delaware County Dog Shelter website. We are a county operated dog shelter and kennel. One of our goals is to find forever homes for our adoptable strays and surrenders. Most people choosing a pet from a shelter do so with the desire to provide it a forever home. Careful screening of those wishing to adopt can help guarantee a successful, lifetime placement with a responsible owner. We also rescue dogs to 501c3 rescue groups and Humane Societies. Only adoptable dogs are adopted or rescued. We will not euthanize an adoptable dog; we will house them for an indefinite period of time to achieve this goal. We pride ourselves in being people friendly and dog friendly! Adopt from us for $6.00!!!

In addition, all Delaware shelters examine and give vaccinations to animals when they arrive, and spay or neuter them before being adopted. In addition to medical care, shelters also screen animals for specific temperaments and behaviors to make sure each family finds the right pet for its lifestyle.
