Faithful friends is great to the animals they help, however they do not know how to work with employees and gave very poor customer service more often than not. The head tier of the agency keep bringing in more animals and when you have to make new pkaces to put more animals, you are overcrowded and need to learn other ways to help those animals. Being overcrowded us not safe or healthy for any of them. I know they want to help all, but there are limits that have to be set and adhered to.

Faithful Friends Animal Society is a wonderful organization that time and time again puts the animals first. Not only is Faithful Friends an animal shelter housing hundreds of animals, they also have many outreach and community programs. Being involved in the Pet Therapy Program and Pit Stop have both been very rewarding and fulfilling endeavors. People with a passion for animals who are looking to get involved and make a difference should consider volunteering their time to Faithful Friends.

Faithful Friends is a wonderful no-kill shelter… The staff is very compassionate – you can actually feel how much they care about the animals living in the shelter. We adopted “Fella” from Faithful Friends.. they walk you though the adoption process and give the animals a goody bag to go home with. The love and care the staff provides exceeds what someone would expect. I donate as much $$ and food I can to help out the facility…

I donate to Faithful Friends because it is a no kill shelter that goes far and beyond what they are expected to do - when the going gets tough - they somehow manage to keep going. They stive endlessly to make adoptions happen - they promote the wellfare of animals - provide health clinics, offer low cost spay and neuter clinics and services, they promote awareness of good animal care and always seem to find a space for a an animal in need. Their fund raising promotions are varied and always keyed into the public having fun while raising awareness of the needs of the many animals that they are saving and trying to get adopted. Their adoption centers at Concord Pet are wonderfully successful. I applaud their dedicated efforts on behalf of the countless animals that they have helped.

Faithful Friends is a wonderful and much needed organization for the State of Delaware and surrounding areas. We were lucky enough to find our wonderful new family member, Marvin, through Faithful Friends. Anyone that is looking for a great new family pet I would suggest to go to Faithful Friends.

Excellent organization that I have always been so very proud to be a part. Compassionate, caring, giving individuals who put their individual strengths and assets to work for the benefit of the organization and the animals. Through public education, low cost spay/neuter programs, healthy pet clinics, pet food bank, working to enact more humane and ethical laws on behalf of animal welfare, trap/neuter/return programs, pet therapy programs as well as animal rescue with placements through fostering and/or adoption it is no shock that it is Delaware's Premiere No Kill Animal Rescue and Shelter.

Faithful Friends Animal Society is blazing a path to better animal welfare in Delaware. Their holistic approach to reducing pet overpopulation thru affordable spay/neuter clinics, adoption events, feral cat trap-neuter-return and advocating for better laws that actually protect companion animals is smart and proactive for long-term solutions in our state. In addition, their pet therapy program elevates the role of pets in the lives of people while bringing joy to their lives, and the Program for Education and Training (PET) helps train cognitively challenged adults with basic life skills at the shelter.
