Surrender & Re-Homing Appointments Policy

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

We’ve had such a positive response to our surrender appointments;
we understand it can be difficult to decide to re-home your pet.

We will be indefinitely extending the policy
that those who wish to surrender/re-home their pet
must make an appointment to do so.

With the ability to know when an animal is coming into our care,
and how many are coming in, we can be better equipped
to prepare for your arrival, make the process a bit smoother and quicker.
We can also have any help needed on standby!
We will also be able to spend a bit more time with you
learning all about your pet and their quirks so we can place them in the best home possible.

Thank you so much for your positive response to our newest policy
which will positively impact the animal’s experience while searching for a forever home.
