Surrendering Your Pet.
At Paws 2 Your Heart, we understand what a difficult decision this is for a pet owner. We know often times families have exhausted all other roads to living happily with their pet.
Here is the general process for owners who need to surrender their pets. While we are passionate about helping every animal, we want to provide only the best possible care for the animals awaiting adoption and this sometimes means that we are not able to immediately take animals in.
Make sure you have considered every other alternative to surrendering your pet. Paws 2 Your Heart would be happy to refer you to a veterinarian, trainer, pet sitter, boarding facility or pet day care if it means that you'll be able to keep your pet happily in your home.
In order to surrender your pet, you'll need to call or email the rescue to set up an appointment. our email and voicemail's are checked frequently so if someone doesn't answer the phone, please leave a message and speak your phone number clearly. If we are able to take your pet, we will schedule an appointment with you right away, please bring all of your pet’s veterinary records with you so we know what shots we will need to update, if any. THERE IS A FEE TO SURRENDER YOUR PET. The fee is based on the amount of care that we have to provide (e.g. spay/neuter surgery, shots, etc.) This will help to ensure the health of your pet while they are waiting to be re-homed.
