Giving up a pet:

Having to relinquish a family pet can be an overwhelming and detrimental experience for both you and your animal.  Please exercise all options and explore all resources before deciding to drop your pet off at a municipal shelter.  While we may not always have the room or resources to take in a pet needing a new home, we are more than happy to help with guidance, courtesy posts and networking- with the hopes of your pet avoiding time spent at a shelter!  Additional resources and points of contact can be found below.
IF you have no other alternative, have explored all options, and still need to rehome your pet, please email us at with the following information:
  • Age, sex, name of pet
  • Is he/she spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccinations?
  • 2-3 clear photos
  • Information about your animal's personality, likes/dislikes, temperament, etc.
  • Why you need to relinquish your pet
  • How long do you have to rehome your pet?
  • Where did you adopt/buy your pet?**
Kindly note, by providing this information, this does not guarantee a new home will be found within the time frame needed.  We are happy to help but encourage you, as the owner, to continue exploring other channels. 
**If you adopted your pet from a rescue organization, contact them first for assistance.  Most rescues require adopted pets be returned should they need to be rehomed.
