Surrendering an Animal
We look forward to the day when there are more homes than homeless pets, and our shelter is not over-filled with animals. Until then, we ask you to honor our “waiting list surrender program” so we may continue operating as a shelter that does not have to euthanize for space. Although we regretfully cannot accept your pet immediately into our adoption program, please view our surrendering process and alternative options listed below. If its an emergency and you cannot wait, Delaware County dogs can be surrendered to the Dog Warden at 740-369-1915.
If you need pet food assistance or advice on resolving a problem with your pet, please call our shelter at (740) 369-7387 or send a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not bring your pet or stray animal to our shelter until we have arranged your pre-scheduled surrender appointment.
We can only accept Delaware County animals into our shelter. Thank you for your patience and understanding
