DHA Intake Request
Thank you for reaching out to Delaware Humane Association. If you can complete the following form, we can let you know if we are able to help. Please note incomplete forms and/or animals with multiple attacks, bites, or serious behavior concerns will unfortunately not be considered.

**If you are requesting the intake of an animal that is loose, cannot be caught, or you are concerned for but are not the owner of, unfortunately, Delaware Humane Association does not have an animal control contract for the State of Delaware, so we do not have legal authority to do any kind of animal control or investigation of animal abuse. We also do not have the staffing or resources for this type of activity. Please call the Office of Animal Welfare at (302) 255-4646. For more information about who to contact about animal cruelty and control, please visit: animalservices.delaware.gov.

Every animal that DHA intakes is provided with a basic standard of care to prepare them for adoption. The costs can add up to a significant amount for DHA, and our adoption fees help us recover only a portion of these expenses. We have a recommended surrender fee of $75. For more information, please visit our website at delawarehumane.org.
