Surrendering a pet

We know the decision to surrender a pet is a difficult one. Our ability to take in animals depends on current capacity, vaccination status of the cat or dog, and the pet’s temperament as well as other factors. Surrendering owners must supply written proof of up-to-date vaccinations and complete an animal history form that will help us better match the pet’s personality and needs to another home. We also request a donation to support the care of the animal and to cover possible medical needs during the dog or cat’s stay with us.

If you'd like advice on helping to keep your pet, please email us at info@baypathhumane.org or visit our services section to find links to financial resources, pet-friendly housing, pet training, and more.
