Surrender Form
Adoptable Dogs



Surrender form

In order to ensure the most appropriate placement for your dog it is important that the information you provide be as detailed and accurate as possible. We strive to place our dogs in situations where they will succeed and your input is vital to our ability to do so.

If you would like to surrender more than one dog please complete one form for each dog.

There is a 4 step process to surrender a dog:

  1. Complete the informational surrender form found below.
  2. We want to meet your dog.  Once we receive the completed surrender form a volunteer will make an appointment with you to meet him/her.
  3. We need your dog’s vet records.  While we prefer dogs are up to date with vaccines it is not a requirement to surrender a dog as we realize financial issues are sometimes a reason to surrender. We will ask you to have your vet fax your dog's records to us at 888 450 2519.
  4. We will move your dog into our foster program as long as he/she isn’t aggressive.  We do not leave dogs with surrendering owners while waiting for placement. We have found that the information provided to us by our foster homes is invaluable in helping us place your dog with the right family. We also complete any outstanding vetting while your dog is in foster care.

The surrender intake process can take anywhere from a few days up to two weeks. Most dogs are moved into foster care within two weeks.

Please email Celeste Long if you have any questions.
