We urge pet owners to consider ALL options before surrendering their animal; however, we understand that there are times when keeping a pet is just not possible. We can only take in an animal when we have an available foster.
If you are needing to surrender your animal, please fill out the form below.
1. Prepare the Animal for Adoption - To increase the chances of finding a home and the success of the new placement, it is important that the pet is:
2. Advertise Widely - Get the word out, in as many places as possible, to increase your chances of success in finding a new home. Social Media is your new best friend!
3. Get the Pet Out There - The more the pet is out and about interacting with people the more likely they will charm the right person (this works especially well with dogs). Take the pet on walks, to the pet store, or a neighborhood park. You can even put on a colorful bandana that says 'Adopt Me' or 'Looking for a Home'.
4. Remind yourself that YOU are this pet's best option for finding a new home - You might think shelters or rescue groups would be more adept at placing the pet because we have experience, facilities, screening guideline, etc. BUT, an individual, particularly one who knows the animal, can focus all his or her efforts on that pet, provide the most information to prospective adopters, and best determine the appropriateness of a new home.
