As the shelter exceeds 6000 animals intaken each year, homes for these animals become increasingly difficult to secure. Although the shelter does all we can to rehome the pets that we care for, there are many things that you, as the owner, are able to do to secure a positive outcome for your pet. Because of the high intake numbers and capacity of the shelter, we request that you try to find an alternative solution to surrendering your pet to the shelter. Solutions include rehoming your pet on your own, finding a trainer to help with behavioral issues, and requesting assistance from animal rescues in the area. Please take a look at our Alternatives to Surrender Guide.
If you have tried all other options, you may contact the shelter and your pet will be accepted based on availability with a $10 surrender fee. We cannot guarantee adoption for your pet. Please try other available options before surrendering to the shelter.
