After you contact our Admissions Department via email, we will reach out to ask you a couple simple questions about the animal including why you’re looking to surrender the animal (behavioral, medical, change in lifestyle) to see if we can provide you a resource such as behavioral advice.
If we can accept your animal, we will then schedule you an appointment to bring in your animal. We will do our best to admit your animal into our care, but we cannot make any guarantee of being able to accept any animal. Additionally, the timing of your appointment will vary depending on the type of animal you are looking to surrender and other upcoming intakes we might have already scheduled. If we cannot admit your animal or admit your animal in a timeframe that works for you, we can provide you with contacts of other groups who might be able to assist you.
Our appointments are scheduled Monday through Sunday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Our Admissions Department will also ask that you print and fill out an Animal Surrender Form prior to your appointment:
Dog Surrender Form
Cat Surrender Form
Surrendering your pet can be stressful, and by completing this animal surrender form before your appointment, you will be able to provide us with the best information about your pet enabling us to match your pet with the right home.
