There are alternatives to surrendering your pet to our shelter.
Here's a resource guide to help you keep your pet in your home and out of an animal shelter or to rehome your pet. We hope you’ll consider other solutions before making the decision to surrender your pet to The Animal Foundation.
Rehoming Your Pet
Before bringing your pet to The Animal Foundation, download our Guide to Rehoming Your Pet and try to find your pet a new forever home.
Finding a new home for your pet will likely take time, patience and effort. However, it will be less stressful on the pet to stay out of the unfamiliar surroundings of the shelter, and you will be able to choose the new home.
This Animal Foundation Guide will walk you through these and more steps.
Do You Need Help With Your Pet?
Please be aware that all support services and admissions are by appointment only to ensure that we have the available resources to meet your pet's needs during their time with us. Please review the information below and follow the steps to schedule a support service appointment with us either in person or over the phone.
Schedule a Call to Discuss Options
There are many reasons you might consider rehoming your pet, and we understand that making this decision is very difficult. The Animal Foundation may be able to offer assistance so you can keep your pet or help you rehome your pet on your own. We are committed to working together to find the best possible solution for you and your pet.
Want to find out more about available options? Schedule a call Monday through Sunday. One of our team members will call you between 10am and 11am for a free 15-minute consultation to discuss alternatives and available resources.
Schedule a Support Service Appointment
Read the following thoroughly, then click to schedule an appointment and complete the required profile.
Support service appointments last approximately 40-60 minutes. During the appointment, team members will gather information about your pet and complete an initial health exam and behavior evaluation. We'll then discuss your options so you can make the best decision for your pet.
Please note that The Animal Foundation is an open-service organization that accepts all animals regardless of their health or behavior condition. As a result, animals deemed untreatable or unhealthy may not be candidates for adoption, and humane euthanasia may be considered when medically and behaviorally appropriate.
What to bring with you to your appointment:
- Your pet.
- A driver's license or other government-issued ID.
- Your pet's up-to-date veterinary records.
- $10 pet surrender fee.
