Welcome to Delaware Pet Rescue! Thank you for visiting our site and your interest in adopting!  

Delaware Pet Rescue was established in 2004 as “Delaware Puppy Rescue” with the primary focus of rescuing pregnant dogs, mothers with new litters, and homeless puppies from shelters.  In 2006, we expanded to the rescue of puppy mill survivors. Our belief is that a dog who has proper training, along with an adoptive families' education of proper care, creates the foundation for a permanent home.  2012 brought the expansion into cat and kitten rescue, and the subsequent renaming of our organization to "Delaware Pet Rescue", to better reflect the variety of lives we save!
