The Delaware SPCA is a private non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of cruelty and the encouragement of humane treatment of all animals. The society was incorporated in 1873 in response to the mistreatment of livestock being led to market in the city of Wilmington.
The late 1890's saw the society begin its contract with the city of Wilmington for dog control, establishing a relati...onship that has continued to the present day. The same period also saw the Delaware SPCA begin its work of encouraging humane education in schools.
The Delaware SPCA was based in Wilmington until 1963, when operations were expanded and a new shelter was constructed in Newark. The society moved again in 1973 to the current location of the Stanton shelter when the previous property was annexed for an expansion of the New Castle County Airport.
In the early 1970's, the Delaware SPCA Sussex Chapter was formally annexed, and the Georgetown shelter was opened on August 1, 1972.
In 2004 the Georgetown shelter was renovated and equipped with a neutering clinic, allowing the Sussex Chapter to offer low cost spay/neuter services to area residents.
The work that began in the late 19th century continues today in the early 21st as the Delaware SPCA continues in its work of promoting the protection and the humane treatment of our animal friends, four-legged and otherwise.
