Surrendering A Pet
We understand that a wide variety of reasons might lead someone to consider surrendering a pet. We hold no judgement toward those facing this choice, however our highest priorities are to keep pets with their families whenever possible, and to keep animals out of the shelter. For this reason we've collected a number of resources to help you keep your pet at home. Most are focused on meeting needs - financial, medical, and behavioral. The rest are focused on rehoming the pet yourself, keeping them out of the shelter while you find them a new home. Click through to view the resources, and feel free to contact the shelter with any questions.
BOTH SHELTERS ARE AT MAX CAPACITY- UNABLE TO ACCEPT PHYSICAL DROP-OFFS AT THIS TIME.
How RGVHS can immediately help:
We are able to immediately help by offering "intake to foster". This means that the animal will be placed in our foster program, be provided vaccines and treatments, and be made available on our website- all while remaining in your home until they are adopted, transferred to a rescue, or a different foster is found. Physical drop-offs are only an option when space is available.
Following the submission of this form, a member of our team will reach out to you via email. Our team is working diligently to meet your needs, but it could take up to 48 hours before someone reaches out. We will attempt to reach you twice before your application is removed from our database.
