Surrender a Pet

As stated in our mission, preference is given to animals from individuals who are entering assisted-living facilities, nursing homes, or hospices or who have passed away. Family and friends who have been left pets due to these circumstances are welcome to surrender these pets to Furever Friends Rescue.

In order to surrender a pet to Furever Friends Rescue:

  1. Contact Furever Friends Rescue to describe the animal and its situation and to ask if space is currently available. Contact information is displayed at the top of this page.

  2. Collect documentation from a veterinarian to attest the following medical information. If circumstances do not permit the full list of veterinary steps to be completed, contact us to discuss options.

    • The animal is in good health and has no major medical issues.

    • The animal is spayed or neutered.

    • The animal has a current rabies vaccination. Animals younger than 16 weeks old are exempt from this requirement.

    • For cats: The animal has current FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia) vaccinations.

    • Please note, unfortunately we are only taking in cats at this time.

  3. Complete two forms: Client Profile Worksheet and Animal Surrender Contract.

  4. Contact FFR to schedule a time and location for surrendering the pet.

The two forms and the veterinarian documentation must be delivered to the rescue for each animal before surrender.

FFR does not charge a surrender fee. However, donations are encouraged in order to offset the cost of on-going care of the animal. FFR will care for all animals until a new, permanent home can be found.
