Give a Wag! Gives to Newark Shelters

In the quaint city of Newark, Delaware, it isn't hard to see what this place has to offer you and your fur family. Between festivals and costume contests, there is no shortage of activities for you to indulge in. Before we get into the activities this great city has to offer, let us take a quick look at the fur-tastic shelter this city provides.  

The Delaware SPCA was originally created in the year 1873 as a way to stand up against the terrible way livestock was being treated in the area. From there, it has been built into a facility that takes great pride in taking care of each animal that comes through its doors. The SPCA has gone through numerous changes over the years, including opening new facilities and creating spay/neuter clinics. In 2016, the shelter was surprisingly shut down when the board looked into selling the land. Luckily, the shelter was able to reopen early 2017, due to the overwhelming support and demand of the local community to bring it back. 

This shelter is a non-profit organization that is kept open by the generous donations of citizens and local businesses. They have plenty of people that help them stay open and because of this, they are able to provide the best care possible for numerous animals each year at the lowest costs. This shelter is located at 455 Stanton Christiana Road. If you are interested in fetching more information on this wonderful shelter, be sure to check out their website.
