The Delta Animal Shelter is thrilled to offer educational tours of our shelter for all ages, school groups, civic groups and the general public. You will get a behind the scenes tour of the Delta Animal Shelter. If your group loves dogs, cats and small animals what better way to learn more about them then at the shelter. Our educational tours include a brief history of the Delta Animal Shelter, ways to help the homeless animals in Delta County and the importance of spay & neutering. Best of all, a tour through the shelter to see the animals that are waiting for their forever homes. Also, there will be animal interaction. Tours typically take about an hour. To schedule a field trip, please call the shelter.
About Delta Animal Shelter:
The Delta Animal Shelter is a 501(c)3 private, non-profit organization dedicated to the direct care of the animals of Delta County. This shelter was operated by the County Sheriffs department until budget cuts forced a permanent closure of the facility in August of 2011. To prevent a permanent closure, a group of animal lovers, The Delta Area Animal Society, took over operations.
We are the county’s only animal shelter, providing a safe shelter, food and medical care to over 1200 animals each year. We are an open-admissions shelter, and turn no animal away. We shelter and provide direct care to any animal in need. Each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new forever 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.
