Animal Intake

Surrendering Your Pet to Faithful Friends

At Faithful Friends, we understand that sometimes pet owners face the hardest decision; having to rehome their pet. We offer a wide variety of resources to try and help keep pets in their homes if at all possible. We hope pet owners will consider and truly test all of the options offered before requesting to surrender a pet to a shelter. We may not be able to accommodate same day surrenders, so please be sure to plan with ample time to ensure the best possibility that we will be able to assist you. We can not guarantee that we will be able to accept any animal.

Donation to Provide Care

Faithful Friends provides every pet we intake with basic medical care. We also provide excellent daily care and enrichment at the shelter while the animals wait for adoption. Fees from adoptions only cover a portion of these expenses. We ask that all pet owners who are surrendering a pet, help to cover the cost of that animals required care, which include: FeLV/FIV (Feline Leukemia/Feline AIDS) Test for cats/kittens; Heartworm Test for dogs/puppies, FVR-CP (Feline Distemper) Vaccination, DHP-PV (Canine Distemper) Vaccination, Rabies Vaccination, Bordetella (Kennel Cough) Vaccination, and Spay/Neuter surgery. If you cannot make a monetary gift to help cover these costs, please talk to our staff about other ways you can help.
