Finding a new home for your pet
Sometimes, families find themselves in situations where caring for an animal is no longer a possibility. Choosing to re-home a pet can be an incredibly difficult decision. POPP is here to provide caring advice and resources for people who are searching for a new home for their companion animal.
We understand that parting ways with an animal can be especially difficult and we’re committed to working with you to ensure the best possible solution for you and your pet.
We do not have a shelter to house dogs and cats in that need new homes as we are a foster home based rescue. The pets we are able to help are restricted to the number of available foster homes.
- Surrendering a pet is by appointment only. Please call our office to discuss potentially surrendering your pet to us. Your information will be transferred to the appropriate adoption/rehoming team.
- What to bring to your appointment
- A driver’s license or other government issued ID
- Your pet’s veterinary records
- Your pet’s surrender fee, listed below. The cost to care for and re-home pets can be hundreds of dollars for each animal. We ask for a surrender fee to help subsidize this cost. The fee is non-refundable and is not dependent on the outcome you choose for your pet after its evaluation
- Canine: $25 each for altered dogs, $50 for unaltered dogs
- Feline: $25 each for altered cats, $50 for unaltered cats
Why do I need to make an appointment to bring in a pet?
In order to ensure resources are ready and available when a pet arrives,
POPP requires a scheduled surrender appointment. Without an appointment process, we would have no control over the number of pets that come into our care each day, and our ability to provide the best possible care for each animal would be hindered.
What if I don’t want to make an appointment?
If you don’t want to schedule an appointment, we will refer you to other rescues and shelters or provide rehoming information to help you rehome your pet yourself.
Contact breed-specific rescue groups
Rescue groups that focus on caring for and helping families re-home a specific breed are available for almost any type of dog. Organized by people who have extensive knowledge of a specific breed, these groups provide a variety of opportunities for your pet, including the possibility of your pet staying in foster care until a new home is found.
