Surrender Appointments

Please note that surrender appointments are currently one-month out.

We understand that relinquishment is sometimes the best choice for the animal. If the only option available to you is giving up legal rights to your pet, Pet Alliance will accept your dog or cat, provide veterinary medical care, nourishing food, water and shelter. Pets will be evaluated medically and behaviorally to determine the adoptability of every pet.

Appointments are required to surrender your pet(s). We accept owned pets from residents of Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties.

There is a minimum of $30 to surrender your pet, or $60 for a litter of 2 or more (under 6 months of age) as it ranges from $200-$350 for us to care for a shelter pet.
