Owner Surrender Information

Surrendering your pet is a tremendously stressful time not only for the family but for the pet most of all.  When a pet arrives at the shelter it has no idea why it is there and it becomes very stressful on the animal.  We do understand that situations arise and families are left with little to no other options for finding a new home for their pet.  We do ask pet owners who may need to surrender their pet to please try to exhaust all other options in trying to rehome, locate a rescue, or find a temporary home for your pet. 

 

CANINE SURRENDER

  • When surrendering your canine, you must contact Montgomery County Animal Care and Control and schedule an appointment.  All Surrenders are scheduled at least 2 weeks out to ensure we have sufficient staff present on the day of surrender as well as provide our staff time to attempt to find a new home for your pet.
  • We ask that to conserve on time that you complete the online behavior assessment form.  This will save valuable time when you arrived at the shelter.  We also ask that you also bring any toys, bedding, or other items your pet is familiar with to try to make his or her stay with us less stressful.
