But when her old nemesis appears on the court docket, Victoria's carefully crafted world implodes―evidence goes missing, a potential mistrial abounds, and the judge winds up drowned in the courthouse bathroom. Victoria realizes her transcript of the proceedings unlocks everyone's secrets...including the murderer's. Plagued with guilt for failing to protect her mentor, Victoria teams up with Ashton North, the handsome state trooper accused of mishandling trial evidence, and starts to untangle the conspiracy surrounding the case. Can she suppress her fears long enough to crack the code, find her voice, and avoid the crosshairs of the killer?  REGISTER HERE Virtual Programs for Adults page.

The virtual food drive will allow us to address our most urgent food needs while ensuring staff safety and preserving valuable staff and transportation resources to conduct more food distributions directly to the community. The new virtual food drive mirrors an online shopping experience where shoppers can select food items and place them in a shopping cart to check out and make a secure, tax-deductible donation. HOST A VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE The most-needed items include: applesauce, cranberry sauce, oatmeal, cold cereals, pudding mix, canned pumpkin, graham cracker pie crust, canned gravy, rice, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, stuffing, hearty soups, corn muffin mix, canned sweet potatoes and yams, canned peas and green beans, 100 percent fruit juice, hot chocolate, coffee and tea, evaporated milk, turkey pans and frozen turkeys.

Now thru December 31 | Delaware Humane Association has tremendous news to share! Thanks to the generosity of a longtime friend of Delaware Humane Association, any gift you make by December 31 will be matched—dollar for dollar—up to $20,000! That means twice as many tails wagging, twice as many cats purring, and twice as much happiness for the animals in our care today! This year has been incredibly challenging for so many, and we can’t tell you how grateful we are for your support. But I also hope you won’t miss this chance to do even more for the homeless, deserving animals in our care. After all, were it not for you, orphaned siblings Al, Carver, and Sonora might not have made it earlier this year. Their awful skin condition required daily medication, special baths, and higher-quality food. But, thanks to your compassion, we were able to give these fragile puppies the round-the-clock care they required until they were healthy and strong enough to be ready for adoption. We’re so happy to report that all 3 siblings have since found their forever homes!  DONATE
