Five Acres Animal Shelter Surrender Policy

Five Acres Animal Shelter is a no-kill facility. Our animals are in our care until they are adopted and find their forever home. Five Acres Animal Shelter does not take in stray dogs or cats. If you have found a stray animal, please contact the nearest animal control facility to where the animal was found in case their owners are looking for them. If you are inquiring about surrendering your personal pet, please fill out the appropriate surrender form. Once your form has been reviewed you will be contacted by a staff member that will determine if we have the space to take in your pet. We recommend reaching out to other rescues as well as space can be limited. There is a $50 surrender fee that is required at the time of surrender. This fee will go towards the animal’s veterinary exam needed in order to be placed for adoption.
