Surrender a Pet

Bringing your pet to the Western Arizona Humane Society  can be a difficult decision to make. We would like you to know that we understand how hard it can be to relinquish a beloved pet and appreciate your choice to surrender your animal responsibly so that he or she will be safe and humanely cared for.

As a private, nonprofit organization dependent on community contributions, we request a donation when an animal is admitted to us.

The Fees

There will be a fee of  $30  for animals relinquished.  All donations are greatly appreciated and help to offset a portion of the cost of caring for the pets we receive each year.

The Process

Please allow enough time to properly relinquish your pet. . We will request some background information about your pet and ask you to fill out a questionnaire telling us about your pet and his or her time with you. This helps us place your pet in a home that is appropriate for them.

If your pet is placed for adoption, we will make every reasonable effort to find your pet(s) a new home. We cannot make any guarantee that your pet(s) will be placed for adoption or be adopted. Other options we may explore for your pet include breed-rescue groups, transfer to another shelter, or humane euthanasia.
