The Delta Animal Shelter is Delta County’s only animal shelter, providing shelter, food and medical care to over 1200 animals each year. Beyond the basics, each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new home. Warm blankets, toys and treats, time spent socializing with caring people; all are a part of the animals’ experience at the Delta Animal Shelter. We need your help to provide for the daily care and feeding of the animals who need us.

Your donation to the Delta Animal Shelter stays in the community to help animals in need. You’ll be joining hundreds of other people dedicated to finding homes for abandoned pets, rescuing abused and neglected animals, and preventing animal abuse and overpopulation through education. We understand that the animals’ needs come first and make sure your donations provide maximum care for the animals you care about.
