We understand that sometimes it’s just not possible to keep your pet. Before making the decision to surrender your animal, please consider all of your options. Contact Big Love Animal Rescue as we may be able to help you solve the problem. Also reach out to friends and relatives who might be able to give the pet a loving home. Other resources we recommend include Get Your Pet, an online community that directly connects people who need to give up a pet with people who want to adopt or rehome. If you do choose to surrender your animal to us, please read below.

Our decisions are based on our ability to provide appropriate housing and care. We give priority admissions to animals that have been vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neuter prior to the surrender process. When surrendering your animal you must bring the following items with you:

  • Pet Vaccine Records
  • Spay/Neuter Certificate
  • Rabies Certificate
  • Microchip Records

All pets that come are surrendered must be healthy prior to filling out the owner surrender form. If your pet has a health issue and/or is taking any kind of medication or treatment, please make sure to let us know immediately. You will be required to sign an owner release form giving us legal ownership of the animal. Once you have signed the owner release form, you may not reclaim your pet, so please be sure that you have made the right decision for you and your pet. The fee to surrender your pet is $1,000. Please understand taking your pet on is a responsibility and commitment, funds may be needed for any medical, boarding, or a paid foster.

Note: If you adopted your pet through Big Love Animal Rescue and circumstances will not allow you to keep him/her, you are required to contact us for further information.
