Surrender Your Pet

Thinking of surrendering your Animal?

We know that sometimes life happens and people find themselves unable to properly care for their Animal.

Before you make the decision to surrender, give away, or sell your Animal, we may be able to help you find solutions that will allow you to keep your Animal as a member of the family. While we can't guarantee miracles, we do have extensive experience dealing with a multitude of issues and can certainly offer suggestions and alternatives to giving up your Animal.

Criteria to surrender your Animal to Harmony and Hope Animal Rescue.

We understand that sometimes despite best efforts it is necessary to surrender your Animal. In this case, we feel the best solution is for Harmony and Hope Animal Rescue to take the Animal and find them a new, loving home.

Based on urgency and foster home space availability, Harmony and Hope Animal Rescue does take in Animals surrendered by their owners. Please understand that because we have very limited resources, it's necessary for us to prioritize the Animals we take into rescue. Pound Animals in danger of being euthanized are given first and top priority. Next are Animals in need of immediate health care that their owners cannot provide, or abandoned/orphaned animals. Then, owner surrenders are considered. Please be patient with us and we will do our best to work with you to ensure the safety and well-being of your Animal.

Surrendering your pet to Harmony and Hope Animal Rescue is a permanent decision.

Harmony and Hope Animal Rescue knows that surrendering your Animal is a very difficult decision, but sometimes - it is the only one to make. If you choose to surrender your Animal, you'll be asked to complete a surrender contract. Your signature on this contract represents a permanent decision on your part. This legally binding contract gives full ownership of the Animal to Harmony and Hope Animal Rescue. This allows us to provide veterinary care and down the road, legally adopt out the Animal to a carefully pre-screened 'forever' home. Please note: We consider adoptions through our organization to be closed, meaning that we do not reveal the identities of either the surrendering or adopting parties. This ensures your privacy, as well as the privacy of the adopter, will be protected.
