Animal Surrender Services

Code: PD-7600.0700

Animal control agencies, animal shelters, foster-based animal rescue programs and other organizations that accept animals whose owners can no longer care for them and are unable to find good homes for the animal themselves. Owners are asked to provide as much information as possible regarding the animal including vaccinations, spay/neuter status, behavior, training, likes and dislikes, and other information that might help the agency rehome the pet appropriately. Animal surrender services are an important part of the animal protective services network in that they prevent unwanted pets from being dumped on the streets or subjected to neglect or abuse, and give them a chance for adoption.
