OWNER SURRENDER

Cats

We consider owner surrender and stray cats as space allows during our business hours. There is a $25 rehoming fee per animal
 

Process


Please leave the animal(s) in the car while you come into the shelter and complete the process. You will be asked why you are surrendering the animal and to fill out a Feline Profile Form (PDF)  so we can find the best future home for that animal.
 

Behavioral Issues, Questions or Concerns?


If you are having behavioral issues with your cat and need help figuring out what to do please stop in and talk to one of our kennel attendants. It could be something as simple as moving a litter box to having a small infection that needs medical care by your vet. We will try to help you to the best of our ability.

TNR and Feline Spay/Neuter Programs


Stray cats do not do well in a shelter environment because they are used to being outside and free and are thus, harder to adopt. Many communities have low cost spay/neuter programs to help feral and stray cat populations. Keeping spayed and neutered cats around keeps the population down! Look into TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) programs in your area.

Dogs

We consider owner surrender dogs during business hours. Owners relinquishing must come into the facility prior to bringing the dog(s) through the door to speak with a staff member about the reason(s) for surrendering, potential for adoptability and to fill out a profile on the dog(s) to better help the staff rehome the animal. These assessments and paperwork can take 20-60 minutes. There is a $40 rehoming fee per canine.

Behavioral Issues, Questions or Concerns?


If you are having behavioral issues with your dog and need help figuring out what to do please stop in and talk to one of our kennel attendants. It could be something as simple as easy training tips, crating the animal while away, or something bigger such as having a medical problem that needs attention from your vet. We will try to help you to the best of our ability.
