Pet Surrender Application
If you are unable to find an alternative and must surrender your pet to the Arizona Humane Society, we will do all we can to provide your pet with the best possible outcome. Our Pet Surrender Application allows us to assist you as quickly as possible when space is available, and we review applications on a daily basis. Please complete our Pet Surrender Application, which will provide us with important information to help best serve your pet.
While the needs of each animal in our care differ, it costs an average of more than $1,000 to care for each pet who enters our shelter. While our surrender fees likely won’t cover the full cost of care for your pet, they will help provide us the necessary resources to keep your pet safe and healthy while we search for a new, loving family.
The surrender fee for all owned dogs, cats and critters or owned litters of puppies or kittens under 6 months is $75.
An appointment is required to surrender your pet.
