Giving up a pet for any reason is never an easy choice.
Most of those reasons are beyond people’s control, like relocation, needing to downsize to an apartment, the development of allergies or other sickness. Whatever the reason, we want to help. Before you bring in your pet to surrender or rehome, please call us for some educated advice, referrals, or helpful hints over the phone that may allow you to continue living with your pet. If surrender is your only option, we will work very hard to match your pet with loving new owners in a warm, comfortable home.
An appointment is required. An appointment helps ensure that we have space for all animals entering our shelter. Please be prepared to spend some time with a staff member when surrendering your pet so that we may get as much background information as possible.
Please bring your pet to the shelter yourself. Owner information will be very helpful in placing your animal in a home that matches your pet's needs. You will be asked to fill out a personality profile about your pet.
Bring veterinary records. Your pet will be placed more successfully if we have full disclosure of all medical records. Also, this saves the expense and potential over-vaccination of your animal.
DO NOT leave your pet outside the shelter when the facility is closed. It is VERY dangerous to your pet's well-being to leave them unattended and with no protection.
Bring a form of payment. To help defray the costs we incur in caring for your pet, we do require a surrender fee. The following forms of payment are acceptable - cash, debit, credit (no American Express)
|Outside county fee||$25|
