Surrendering a Pet
We understand that pet owners have many reasons why they cannot keep their pets. We also believe in lifelong commitments to companion animals, and understand the heartache that is felt when you have to give up a pet.
We strongly encourage pet owners to seek help in finding solutions to common issues, such as behavior problems, veterinary needs or house training as soon as the problem is discovered. Don’t know where to start? Give us a call and we will do our best to get you pointed in the right direction!

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.
