Surrender Application for Pet

Animals are a LIFETIME commitment, but Living Love Animal Rescue (LLAR) understands that sometimes owners can no longer care for their pets for various reasons. Before deciding to surrender your pet to a shelter, please consider the following options:


Re-homing your pet: Talk to family, friends and co-workers to see if anyone is able to take ownership of your family member.


Pet friendly housing: If you are planning on moving, look into housing that is pet friendly. Many apartment complexes and landlords do allow pets. It may be a bit more challenging to find housing, but it will be worth it when your furry friend can move with you!


Make an appointment with a veterinarian: If your pet is having medical problems, seek help from a local veterinarian. Your pet may have an easily treatable illness or infection.


Seek help from a trainer: If your pet is having behavioral issues, seek help from a certified trainer.


Place an ad: If you aren’t able to find a family member or friend to take your pet, consider placing an ad in your local paper or social media page. This way you have more control over who takes over ownership of your pet.


ADMISSSION PROCESS FOR LLAR: Because LLAR is a small, 100% volunteer run shelter with a limited budget, appointments are required to surrender a pet. Due to space and resources, not every animal will be admitted. If you would like to surrender your pet to LLAR, please fill out the appropriate surrender form found on our website or attached to this email. Once submitted, the application will be evaluated for consideration. A LLAR volunteer will reply within a week to schedule a meet and greet.   A meet and greet in your home is part of the consideration for admittance to LLAR. Please keep in mind that LLAR does consider all requests for pet surrender. 


Surrendered dogs MUST be spayed/neutered, be current on DHLPP and Rabies vaccinations, and must be vet tested for Heartworms within 30 days of surrender. Minimum surrender donation is $50 per dog. 


Surrendered cats MUST be spayed/neutered, be current on PCRP and Rabies vaccinations. Temperament will be tested. Only non-feral cats/kittens will be considered. Minimum surrender donation is $30 per cat.
