Surrender a Pet

We accept owner-surrendered animals by appointment only.  This allows us to ensure adequate cage space for your pet, as well as those already in our care.  It is important to us to make sure each animal has adequate space and resources to ensure quality care during their stay and to help them find a new family as quickly as possible.  Please call 816-325-7216 to speak with an Admissions Counselor about scheduling an appointment.  Once your appointment is scheduled, you can print the appropriate surrender form below to bring with you to your appointment.  Completing the form as detailed and accurately as possible will help us to find the best family to adopt your pet.
