How You Can Help

Here’s what you can do to help!

  • Spay and neuter your own pets.
  • Give generously. Your donations to the Daphne Animal Shelter are appreciated and are the basis for everything we accomplish on behalf of the animals. We are a municipal organization to make a donation contact us.
  • Tell friends and co-workers that the best place to get a pet is at a shelter. Wonderful animals are available, and organizations like ours offer information about health services, training opportunities and one-on-one advice.
  • Never buy an animal from a pet store or sight unseen from an Internet site. These animals may come from large-scale breeding operations.
  • Support legislation to control commercial breeders.
  • Be informed about local laws and tell others. Daphne has ordinances requiring that dogs and cats over 4 months be spayed/neutered when adopted from the shelter. Daphne levies a stiff fine on owners of un-neutered dogs and cats found “running at large that are in season.”
  • Promote the Daphne Animal Shelter through your professional association, service club or your child’s scout troup or 4-H Club. We welcome the chance to present educational programs.
