We realize there are times when owners can no longer care for their pet and we know how difficult a decision surrendering your pet can be. We are here to help you with the process of re-homing your pet.
If you have a pet you can no longer care for, please call us at 970.226.3647 ext. 0 first to discuss your situation. Re-homing your pet is not an easy choice to make and we are here to help you with the process.
If you’re surrendering your pet due to a behavior concern, explore our online help sheets and/or consider seeking the guidance of an animal behaviorist or trainer.
If you are confident in your decision to surrender your pet, complete our dog surrender form or cat surrender form or download the dog surrender PDF or cat surrender PDF. This can be done at the shelter or from the comfort of your own home.
As an independent, not-for-profit organization, we ask for a $30 pet relinquishment fee. No pet will be turned away for due to an owner’s inability to pay. This relinquishment fee helps us care for nearly 6,500 animals each year. Surrender fees vary for exotic pets, fish, and farm animals.
