Cat Surrender Inquiry Form

Animal Aid accepts owner-surrendered cats on a case-by-case basis, as being a smaller shelter our space is limited and we work closely with a variety of county and private shelters. Depending on why you are considering rehoming your animal, you may find some of the resources in our Rehoming Packet or Veterinary and Financial Services Packet helpful, as these outline alternatives to rehoming and assistance available within the community.

We understand that giving up a beloved pet may become the only option for some families, and when our capacity allows us to do so, we would like to assist the community in providing a smooth rehoming process for you and your cat(s) during this emotional decision. In order to do so, our surrender inquiry process can take a little bit longer than your standard shelter surrender. Animal Aid keeps cats in free roam rooms or in foster homes (i.e., not in cages unless medically necessary).

Animal Aid cannot currently take in FIV+ or Felv+ cats or bottle-feeding kittens. We will require a cat to test negative for FIV and Felv before we are able to take in a cat.

Please note: This form is an inquiry only and the surrender process is not complete until all of the criteria above has been discussed with an Animal Aid representative and the animal has been legally signed into Animal Aid’s care.
