Pet Adoption Center

Presently, we do not have an adoption center at our Hockessin location. Our adoption center is located at our Windcrest Animal Hospital branch and offers a full-service program to find the perfect pet for you. We have plenty of pets who are excited to find a new home!

Pet Adoption Center

Save the Animals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The adoption center is dedicated to placing unwanted, abused, abandoned and stray animals into permanent, loving homes. We believe that all animals deserve a happy life with someone that will love and take care of them – maybe that’s you! We strive to make the adoption process simple yet thorough. Please read on to learn more about the adoption process.

Our Pet Adoption Process

  1. Check out our family  Click here to view our pets or visit our hospital for an up-close and personal look at our family of pets in need. Just be sure to schedule an appointment for a meet and greet.
  2. Application – Complete our application, so we have all the necessary info needed for a stress-free and safe adoption process. Click here for a printable copy of the application.
  3. Interview/Meet and Greet – Meet with our adoption center director, Angie Taylor, who will ask you a series of questions to ensure your new pet will be a good fit for your family. Both you and your prospective pet will have a chance to get acquainted and find out if you might be a perfect match. If not, you will have the opportunity to meet with other pets that may be a better fit.
  4. One-week trial – Adopting a pet is a serious commitment. That’s why we offer a trial period for you and your pet to get to know each other and learn if you’re a perfect fit.
  5. Adoption Day – We will check in with you after your one-week trial period to be sure you and your new pet are adjusting well. At that point, if you decide to make it official, you will pay the adoption fee of $100, which goes back to the adoption center to provide food, shelter, and medical care for our adoptable.

Contact Angie Taylor, our director, at 302-998-2995 or for more details about adopting a pet at our center. Check out our Featured Pet of the Month below—and others available in the Hockessin, Delaware area at

The “Save the Animals” Cat of the Month!

Meet Tabitha

She is our newest adoptable in Save the Animals. Tabitha was found near the Philadelphia airport and taken in by a Good Samaritan. She is around 6 years old. She is a very sweet cat and easy to work with. Tabitha is a bit shy but does warm up quickly. We feel she would prefer a quieter home.
