Surrendering Your Pet

If you must consider surrendering your pet to the shelter, we ask that you contact us in advance to make sure there is room at the shelter for your pet.  If there is room, we will set up a time to intake the animal.  If there isn't room the pet is placed on a waiting list.  If you have a full breed dog we urge you to seek out rescue groups which we will help you find.

When we can accommodate your pet, we ask that you please bring any vaccination records with the name and contact information of the veterinarian who last saw your pet.   You will be required to fill out an owner release form, which will assist us in finding your pet a new home.   We encourage you to bring your pets food, favorite toys or blankets to make the transition less stressful.




We can't guarantee that your pet will be a candidate for adoption.  They will need to pass a medical and behavioral evaluation before being deemed adoptable.  




While we will do our best to give your pet every chance of finding a new home,  we suggest that you make every effort to rehome your animal before bringing them to the shelter. 




The owner release fee of $45.00/pet or litter is due at the time of surrender.
