Welcome to the Delaware County Dog Shelter website. We are a county operated dog shelter and kennel. One of our goals is to find forever homes for our adoptable strays and surrenders. Most people choosing a pet from a shelter do so with the desire to provide it a forever home. Careful screening of those wishing to adopt can help guarantee a successful, lifetime placement with a responsible owner. We also rescue dogs to 501c3 rescue groups and Humane Societies. Only adoptable dogs are adopted or rescued. We will not euthanize an adoptable dog; we will house them for an indefinite period of time to achieve this goal. We pride ourselves in being people friendly and dog friendly! Adopt from us for $6.00!!!
