~ Owner Surrender Request ~
The Dog Profile

We realize what a difficult decision it is to find a new home for your dog.  We recognize that you care enough to give your dog a second chance for a good life through our re-homing program.  In order to ensure that we find a new home where it will be loved and cared for, please answer the following questions as fully and as honestly as possible.  This allows us to better assess your dog's needs during this transition period.

If accepted into our program, we have experienced people that can work on training, medical or behavior problems. Please make us aware of any issues, no matter how minor, so that we can place the dog in an appropriate foster home where he can brush up the skills he he may need to be more adoptable. This helps insure your dog gets the best possible forever home.

If your dog is accepted into our program you will be required to sign over ownership of the dog to rescue.  If space in foster care is available, we will take possession immediately.  Space in foster homes, however, is always in short supply and we may request that you continue to care for your dog until an appropriate permanent home is found. In some cases we have to board the dogs while we are waiting a foster or forever  home. We will not release the dog to a shelter.

Thank you for ensuring that your dog has bright future ahead of him instead of facing the end of his life alone, feeling abandoned and unloved in a shelter.
