Do you have a pet that you can no longer keep?

We might be able to help.

IMPORTANT: The Owner Surrender Program is for animals NOT adopted through AAWL. Animals adopted through AAWL can be returned at any time during the lifetime of the animal.

  • There is a $50 surrender fee for any pet we take in.
  • We do not accept all pets. You must go through the following process and your pet must qualify. IF WE EVALUATE YOUR PET, IT DOES NOT GUARANTEE WE CAN TAKE IT IN. IF YOUR ANIMAL IS ACCEPTED, BECAUSE OF LIMITED SPACE, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE YOUR ANIMAL RIGHT AWAY.
  • ALL animals must be owned by surrendering party.
