We understand there may be a time when you need to rehome your pet or surrender them to a shelter. We do not charge a fee to surrender animals but do ask for a few things...
** Vet Records - it is very important that we have medical records showing any potential medical issues. It is also helpful to know when vaccinations are due. If we do not receive proof of vaccinations we have to administer them to ensure they have been done.
** FIV test results - our cats are in a big cat room, we do not like to have them in little kennels. To be able to release a new feline resident into the cat room, we have make sure they are FIV negative. We can make arrangements for FIV positive kitties but would like to avoid contaminating the entire herd.
While we do prefer to have these things it is not an absolute requirement. It helps keep the shelter costs low and gives a new animal the opportunity to be adoptable ASAP.
COURTESY CALL - If you are planning to bring in an animal a courtesy call is greatly appreciated. There is a little bit of work that needs to be done before having them brought in (setting up a kennel space or having a quarantine area set up for unvaccinated animals). Also, a courtesy call ensures we have the space to take on more animals at that point in time.
