Surrender a Pet

The decision to relinquish at pet is a difficult one.  Often animal behavior counseling, training classes or appropriate veterinary care can help keep a pet in their home.  We encourage you to exhaust all other resources before making this decision.

We also know that relinquishment is sometimes the best choice for the animal. If there is no other option available to you but giving up legal rights to your pet, the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando will accept your dog or cat, provide veterinary medical care, nourishing food, water, and shelter. Our SAFER® certified team determines the adaptability of every pet.

Request an appointment by calling (407) 351-7722.

Making an appointment to relinquish your pet is preferred. This will reduce your wait time,  and increase the chances of your pet being adopted into a fitting home by allowing our counselors to obtain important information about the pet’s needs and behaviors.  You may complete the surrender forms prior by printing them online (Dog Form | Cat Form)

On average we invest $254 in each adoptable cat and $315 in each adoptable dog in our care. There is no fee to surrender a pet but we do ask for a meaningful donation and suggest a minimum of $50 for each animal. Any amount makes an impact.  You may donate online or in-person.

Surrender Alternatives

If you know what breed your pet is, another option is to surrender your pet to a breed-specific rescue. Potential adopters often have a specific breed in mind, and for that reason, will look to these type of rescues. This can often ensure that your pet finds a new home that’s a perfect fit for him or her.

For military members who are planning for deployment and need a temporary home for their animals, please contact Dogs on Deployment.  They provide volunteers willing to board service members pets during their commitment.
