How to Surrender a Pet
Don’t wait until the last minute!! .
Call to make an appointment. Appointments are made based on available space on a first come first served basis. We will try our best to schedule you as soon as possible or on a convenient day for you. If your call is not answered immediately, leave a message and we will return your call within 24 hours. Appointments are made in 30 minute increments between 11am – 5pm Tuesday through Sunday.
Be prepared, and remember to bring proof of ownership, a form of identification and the surrender fee. Acceptable forms of ownership proof include one or more of the following: vet bills, bill of sale, adoption paperwork, microchip information, or something proving that you have willingly cared for the pet for at least 2 weeks.
Make your pet as adoptable as possible.
Consider having your pet spayed/neutered prior to surrender. Be up to date on vaccines. Give your pet a bath to make him/her look their best. Be sure to be honest about your pet including any possible behavior problems as this will help adopters to be more prepared.
Please submit our online questionnaire for each pet you will be surrendering.
Forms of payment: Cash or all major credit cards.
