Pet Surrender

How to Surrender Your Pet

If you are no longer able to care for your pet or if you have found a stray that you cannot keep, we accept “surrenders” between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM, seven days a week, at our Intake Department located on the lower level of our shelter. Please park in the covered parking garage.

Due to limited space and resources, we cannot guarantee that every surrender will be accepted. There will be a surrender fee based on the type of animal collected upon surrender: $50 for dogs, $30 for cats, and $10 for pocket pets.

To inquire about surrendering a pet, please call or email at: 813.876.7138 ext. 0 or

Pet Rehoming

If you need to rehome your pet and we are unable to take them in due to limited space, we encourage you to use Rehome by Adopt-A-Pet and the Petco Foundation.

This life-saving tool will help you find a suitable home for your pet while supporting our homeless pets through an adoption fee donation. Get started:
