Keeping the animals happy & healthy


Thanks to a community initiative between the First State Animal Center, SPCA and Dover Federal Credit Union, $2,644 was raised for the animals during the month of October. In a month-long initiative, Dover Federal’s 7 statewide branch locations served as a donation drop off for the First State Animal Center and SPCA “Wish List” items. As well as collecting donation items, each of the branches accepted monetary donations for the shelter. In addition, Dover Federal team members “Jean Fridays” donations were matched dollar for dollar by the First State Favorite Credit Union. On Oct. 20, an adoption event was held at Dover Federal’s Smyrna branch, which provided the ability to find a forever home for some fur babies, while also raising awareness for the shelter.



The First State Animal Center and SPCA is located at 32 Shelter Circle Camden, De 19934. They are a non-profit no kill animal shelter, that offers pet adoptions, wellness care, doggy dog care and boarding changing animal lives one by one.

Dover Federal Credit Union is the largest credit union in the state of Delaware, with a membership of over 48,000. Dover Federal has offices in Smyrna, New Castle, Middletown, Milford, and Dover, including one at Dover Air Force Base. To experience the Dover Federal Credit Union difference, visit
