Faithful Friends was founded in 2000, as Citizens for the Protection and Care of Animals, by a group of local animal lovers who believe there is a better way to address the problem of pet homelessness than mass euthanasia.
Currently, about 25,000 pets become homeless in Delaware and over 15,000 are destroyed in Delaware's publicly funded shelters. The vast majority of these pets are destroyed because there are no homes for them immediately available. And these numbers do not take into account the thousands of homeless cats that huddle near dumpsters, living in fear.
Pet overpopulation and homelessness is a community problem, not a shelter problem. It takes a unified effort within the community to solve the problem and to do so in a humane, effective manner. We hope you will join this effort!
