Surrendering Animals

SURRENDERING ANIMALS

When an animal is surrendered to ARF:

  • The animal will be checked by a veterinarian, & any necessary medical treatments will be completed at ARF’s discretion.
  • ARF will evaluate the animal & attempt to find him/her a permanent, loving home.
  • ARF will only euthanize the animal if it is absolutely necessary, such as the animal is extremely aggressive, or suffering from illness, injury, or is in pain and cannot be healed.
  • By surrendering the animal, you agree to give up all future rights to the animal, including, but not limited to: visitation, reclaiming, & any other rights that you may have had as an owner of the animal.
  • ARF reserves the right to withhold any & all information pertaining to the animal from you & any person acting on your behalf.

While ARF wishes that we could help every animal in need, there are times when we are unable to take a pet or a stray animal that you have found. ARF will intake surrendered animals whenever we can if:

  1. The animal is not aggressive toward other animals or people.
  2. We have adequate space.
  3. The animal is relatively healthy.

Furthermore, every situation with every animal is unique.

 

If you need to surrender an animal, please call and be prepared with the following information:

  • Animal’s age and sex
  • If the animal has been fixed and is up-to-date on shots
  • Is the animal good around dogs, cats, and kids
  • Why are you needing to surrender the animal

 

Please be prepared to provide photos of the animal, veterinary records, & know that at the intake meeting, we will temperament test the animal to make sure that it is not aggressive toward humans and other animals.

Friends, we have a pup that we want to introduce to you. His name is Keenan; Keenan was brought to our clinic for an exam by friends of the pups owner. The pups owner was unable to afford care, and the friends and owner decided it was in the pups best interest to be surrendered to ARF. Keenan has demodex mange, which if you remember is what Alley (now Minxie) had. Keenan also has some other issues going on, a very bad skin infection coupled with several infected bite wounds from another dog in the home. We want to stress that the owners made the right decision by surrendering him to ARF and while we wish they would have sought treatment earlier we also are thankful that they realized that this was beyond their care and signed him over to ARF. Our PAW clinic will try and work with owners as best as possible to offer affordable care. When that is not possible, and ARF has room, they are there to take over the care of the pet. To donate to his ongoing medical bills, please visit www.munciearf.com or call our clinic at 765-896-9224 to donate via credit ir debit over the phone directly to his bill at our clinic. ...
