Surrendering Your Animal

There are many reasons a family can no longer care for a pet, and we’re here to help. To reduce stress on animals coming into the shelter and better manage our shelter population, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region recommends you schedule a surrender appointment. Scheduling an appointment online is easy - you choose the date and time that works best for you and you won't have to wait to meet with a customer service representative.

  • Please note we can only accommodate one pet per time slot.
  • Each pet must have a separate completed intake form. This may seem somewhat cumbersome when surrendering a litter of puppies or kittens, however, it allows us to more quickly process you once you arrive and it allows us to better get to know your pet(s) and make better adoption matches.

Relinquishment Fees

When you can no longer care for your pet and need to bring him to the shelter, we will charge a small fee to help defray the cost of caring for your pet. This fee doesn’t cover the full cost of care, but it does help us in providing safe shelter, veterinary care and a chance for a new life.

Fees vary depending on the number and type of animal you surrender. However, we will not charge a fee should you need to surrender a puppy(ies) or kitten(s). We will also work with you to have the mom spayed.
