Friends of the Shelter

Can you Imagine...

...a state where no dogs or cats are killed for lack of a good home?


Our Future

Faithful Friends, Inc. is working closely with national leaders in animal welfare to improve the outcomes for people and homeless pets in Delaware and the surrounding communities.

We hope to combine a state-of-the-art Adoption Center similar to the Richmond, VA, SPCA, with a sanctuary, based on the model of Best Friends in Utah.

We acknowledge with great thanks the support and guidance of Faith Maloney of Best Friends Animal Society in Utah and Robin Starr of Richmond, VA's no-kill SPCA.


We have a vision...

A Message from the Executive Director

I invite you to join us in expanding our community's circle of compassion. Our goal is to build on the success of the most forward-thinking leaders in animal welfare who are spearheading a national no-kill movement and reducing euthanasia rates to under 15%.

Today in Delaware, 80% of all homeless dogs and cats are destroyed after waiting, confused and scared about their fate. That's more than 15,000 needless deaths every year.

With your help, our abandoned pets will find a safe haven from the pain and suffering they currently must endure. I stand by my commitment to improving the lives of Delaware's homeless animals. I urge you to join Faithful Friends and work with us to make Delaware a no kill state and make a real difference in the lives of homeless pets in our community.

The animals are counting on us!

We can. Our goal is to create a community that reduces the birth of unwanted pets, finds homes for all adoptable animals and provides a sanctuary for those who, because of age, illness or temperament, can't easily be adopted. Our outreach center at:
