Delaware awarded no-kill status for animal shelters

GEORGETOWN, Del. – Delaware is officially the first and only no-kill state in the country, according to the Best Friends Animal Society.

Members of the Brandywine Valley SPCA in Georgetown say this was all possible thanks in part to their no-kill initiatives.

Members add that things like their Second Change Program and disaster relief work have played a huge role.

They hope this news will inspire surrounding states to join in on their no-kill initiatives.

“Our work is never over at the Brandywine Valley SPCA (BVSPCA) and reaching this milestone is of course phenomenal for the state and for the organization,” said the BVSPCA’s Delaware Director, Walt Fenstermacher.

People at the shelter say their goal is to work with other organizations to help make the United States a no-kill nation by 2025.
