At Larimer Humane Society, we realize that there are times when owners can no longer care for their pets and we know how difficult a decision this can be. If you have a pet you can no longer care for, please call us 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, please explore our online help sheets and/or seek the guidance of an animal behaviorist or trainer.
If you are confident in your decision to surrender your pet, please complete our dog surrender form or cat surrender form. You can also download our dog surrender form or cat surrender form. This can be done at the shelter or you can download it and complete it in 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 12,000 animals each year, both wild and domestic. Surrender fees vary for exotics, fish and farm animals.
