Surrendering a Pet

No longer able to care for your dog or cat?

Surrendering a pet can be a very hard decision and an emotional experience. We understand that there are times when you are not able to keep your pet. Our priority is always to work with you in the best interest of the animals and trying to keep families together. It is with a heavy heart that we accept a surrendered pet to our shelter. (If feeding your pet is an issue, please contact us about our Pet Food Bank as an alternative to surrendering.)

How do I begin the surrender process?

Please call ahead to schedule an appointment. When space permits, we can accept surrenders and strays. We are only able to accept dogs and cats. You can reach our surrender coordinator at 586-731-9210 extension 213

What if the shelter is unable to accept your surrendered pet?

We are interested in keeping your pet with you, if at all possible. We can provide you with information to help your personal situation. If there is no way for you to keep your pet, we can provide a list of rescue groups and other shelters that may be able to accept your surrender.
