Across the country, there is an epidemic regarding pet overpopulation. Over crowding in these shelters has caused millions of innocent animals to be euthanized every year. In some cases, shelters try to accommodate at 200% capacity just to ensure the animals safety. Stray animals face many dangers on a daily basis, especially ones abandoned by their own families. They could get hit by cars, carry deadly diseases, or end up in the wrong hands of the wrong people.
Just like the ASPCA and other animal rights organizations, we strive to protect the rights and safety of ALL animals. But we do need your help! We can't fight the battle against animal cruelty by ourselves.
If you donate to our cause,we can post a picture of your pet on our website. If you do not have a pet, we accept all kinds of donations - food, toys, blankets, sheets, water/food bowls. Any single item will help an animal in need. You can e-mail the pictures at:

Earl W. Woodlen,Jr., partners with the SPCA and donates his time to help feed the animals. He brings his own food for the animals at times as well. This helps the SPCA with the feeding of all the animals.
Mr. Woodlen is contacted all the time about animals people do not want or can no longer care for. If there is room at the SPCA they will allow Mr. Woodlen to pick up the animals and bring them there to be taken care of and hopefully adopted.
This picture is of a friend my mine who volunteers at the ASPCA. I am a volunteer there as well, now we need some help and donations are always appreciated.
Animals we have buried and gave a place to rest.
My name is Earl W. Woodlen, Jr. the CEO of the Harriet Tubman Safe House here in Wilmington, Delaware. I rescue animals or provide a burail if that is what is needed.
I get calls to come and pick up some poor dead animals that were just left in the street from time to time.
These are some of the animals that I picked up from the street and gave them a decent burial. We say prayers for them before placing them in the ground and marking there burial spot.
If you have an animal that has recently died and would like to have him burred for a small donation I will come and pick your animal and give them a decent burial on my property.

I received a call from Amtrack stating that they had a dead bird lying in front of there property and needed it removed. I was asked to please come and pick him up. I said that's what I do, yeah, I'll be there. I was asked how do I run my business and I told them by donations being I am a non-profit organization. I am still waiting on a donation from Amtrack.
I did go and pick him up and laid him to rest beside other animals buried on my property.

Pettinaro Real Estate called me and said they saw one of my flyers and know what I do with rescuing animals and said they had a dead bird on their property and needed it removed.
I came and picked up the bird and gave it a decent burial. Someone from the Pettinaro's office gave me a donation for doing this for them.
