Caring for Pets

Until They're Home

As Kent County’s only animal shelter, we care for hundreds of animals each year, with the mindset that each and every single adoptable pet will receive food, shelter, medical attention and love until they’re home. We also focus on progressive programs that strengthen our community through our food pantry, lost and found services, rehoming support services and more.

Animal Services

Call 911 for animal-related concerns and emergencies or 410-778-3648 for animal-related non-emergencies.

Our team responds to domestic animal-related calls, from rescuing kittens to picking up strays. They conduct investigations regarding animal cruelty and public safety concerns pertaining to animals, as well as run our TNR Program to reduce the feral cat population.

We get our animals out of the kennels

Our staff and volunteers walk our dogs three times a day around our quarter-mile hiking trail, and every animal receives daily enrichment: fetch in one of our four play yards, car rides into town, catnip in the catios and more! 

Your support means the world to our organization and our pets
