Strays or Surrender


It is our mission that

“Every healthy, treatable pet finds a forever home”

We offer compassion and understanding to owners who relinquish their pets and a warm welcome to the animals that are being entrusted in our care. You can help us achieve this by providing detailed information about your pet on the surrender form as well as at the time of intake. All intakes are done by appointment only.

Once you submit your surrender form, a staff member will reach out within 72 hours to discuss the possible next steps for your pet. Please note that submitting a surrender form does not guarantee an intake appointment.

Surrender Fee

If you’ve been granted an intake appointment for an owned pet, you will be asked to pay a $150 surrender fee (not applicable to puppies and kittens under 3 months) which will contribute to the cost of caring for your animal. This fee will be put towards the cost of your pet’s care with us.

Any additional donation you are able to make beyond the $150 is greatly appreciated as it costs well over $1000 to care for a shelter pet each year. If you have a stray animal that you are trying to find shelter for, you can fill out the Stray Surrender form here.

While the surrender fee is not required, we do suggest a donation of atleast $25 for each stray animal that we take into the shelter.

What To Bring?

  1. A driver's license or other government-issued ID.
  2. Your pet’s up-to-date veterinary records.
  3. Surrender Fees or Donations.

One pet surrendered per appointment or one litter of puppies/kittens/ per appointment. Understand that placing your pet in a shelter should be a last resort. It will be a stressful and difficult transition for them. If you would like to discuss alternatives to pet surrender, please call (808) 754-1510 or email
