Do You Need to Surrender a Pet?

We accept animals on a space-available basis. In order to assist with placement we need as much information as possible. We are happy to list your pet on our Community Pets In Need page, as well as go through our current pet requests to find a match. Please fill out the following form. This will also give us the ability to take the animal into the shelter if space is or becomes available.

ALTERNATIVES TO SURRENDERING A PET

We may be able to help you keep your pet at home or there may be alternative re-homing options available to you.

TRAINING AND PET BEHAVIOR

Sometimes pet behavior problems seem overwhelming, but many can be managed with the application of a little knowledge and a little effort. Keeping pets in their homes in a manner that’s comfortable for both pet and owner is one of our many goals at Alaqua Animal Refuge. Please click here for more training resources.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU CAN NO LONGER KEEP YOUR PET

Requests to take in animals far exceeds our space availability, but we strive to do our best to help any animal in need. To achieve this goal, we need the complete cooperation of the person or family surrendering the animal. Please fill out the surrender form below and provide as much information as possible about the animal, a good photo, and its medical history and facts to assist in the placement. We will use this information to provide you with a courtesy listing and cross reference our records to see if we have an immediate space available, permanent home, or foster home available.

Admissions into Alaqua vary from day to day depending on space requirements for that size and breed of animal. By filling out the required forms, these animals will take priority when space does become available.
