What you need to know before surrendering an animal
Per our mission statement, we aim to reduce the need of euthanasia in Clay County, therefore, we do not accept any animal from outside of Clay County.
- We cannot take in any animal with aggression or bite history.
- Pets must be spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and have a recent negative Heartworm or FeLV/FIV test.
- In the case of young unaltered kittens/puppies under 4 months, we would ask for a donation to balance out the cost of spay/neuter, vaccines and microchip.
How to submit your surrender request
Owner must submit the appropriate application using the following links:
Dog Surrender Application Form
Cat Surrender Application Form
Owner must send the following information within 5 days of the application to [email protected]
- Recent picture of the pet.
- Latest medical records (includes; rabies vaccine, spay/neuter, and negative heartworm/FeLV/FIV test – a picture of the records is OK).
Upon the receipt of all required information, our Kennel / Cattery Supervisor will review your request and provide surrender appointment details. We reserve the right to decline your request for surrendering.
What to bring to your pet surrender appointment
You will need to bring the following:
- Your pet
- A valid, government-issued Clay County ID
- Medical records
If your pet is not current on any of the medical requirements above, you will be charged for the surrender and/or medical fees.
Please understand, an appointment does NOT guarantee we will intake your dog or cat. We may have a waiting list at the time you want to surrender your pet and may take some time.
If time is of the essence, we would recommend using the re-homing websites below or consider Clay County Animals Services (if Clay County resident).
