Relinquishing Your Dog

Sometimes people need to relinquish (give away) their dog. It is often a sad situation, but we can help. 

  • There may be a way to help you keep your pet. 

  • If you need to relinquish an animal because of medical, financial, behavioral, or other reasons you may bring it to us.

  • If your pet is suffering from a medical condition or is unsafe in the household, you may relinquish the animal to us.

  • If you have no other options but to surrender your pet, please be prepared to spend some time with us so we may collect information that will help it adjust to a new owner. 

  • Your pet may have more success in a new home if we have full disclosure of all medical and behavioral issues. If possible, please bring veterinary records.

  • There is a $0 fee for relinquishing a pet.

  • If the animal is healthy, it can be put up for adoption right away so a new home may be found as quickly as possible.

  • Please email and schedule an appointment, along with your identification.
