Relinquish an Animal
Before you decide to give up your pet, please review your alternatives to surrendering your pet.
If despite your best efforts and you have exhausted all other alternatives, you find it necessary to surrender your pet(s), Helping Paws is here to help. Helping Paws will accept dogs and cats into the shelter that might otherwise be abandoned. However, because we are a no-kill shelter we are limited in the number of animals we can take in at any given time.
Please be aware that we are not here to take pets with serious behavior problems off your hands. We can recommend trainers and behaviorists that can help you to work with your pet in your home. A shelter, no matter how nice, can be stressful and not all animals will do well in a shelter environment.
