Returning An Adopted Pet
The Humane Society of the United States estimated that between 6 million and 8 million cats and dogs enter U.S. animal shelters each year.

The relinquishment of previously owned, animal is frustrating to animal shelter personnel, dangerous for the animal, and often painful for the relinquisher.

Too many animals end up in shelters because of the confusion between behavioral and training issues. Don't let your pet be one of them. For help visit our Behavior Helpline or sign up for effective dog training classes.
Surrendering Your Pet - The Last Resort
Ideally, when one adopts an animal, or accepts an animal into his or her home, that person makes a commitment for the lifetime of the animal. In a perfect world, pet adoption would not be taken lightly and full consideration would be given, before hand, to all the possible scenarios that could affect or threaten that very special relationship between person and pet. Certainly, there are a few justifiable reasons that make it necessary to relocate an adopted animal.

If you have adopted a pet and need to return him or her please fill out the form below.
