Surrendering a Pet

For any Farmers Branch resident that is surrendering their pet to the Adoption Center there is a $20 intake / surrender fee for each animal surrendered and APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED.

We can only accept surrenders from residents due to our jurisdiction limits. If you live outside the city, we encourage you to visit the web page for your city's animal services in order to get in contact with the appropriate party.

Please be advised, we can only accept surrenders by appointment. We are an open intake shelter for residents but we need to assign each pet a time to come in so we can accommodate each individual's needs. Please call 972.919.8770 or email Animal Services for an appointment time.

If you are surrendering for financial reasons, we may be able to help you keep your pet in your home. Please call or email the shelter and ask directly for the manager.
