Safe Harbor understands that surrendering your animal(s) is a difficult decision. Below are some resources to help with this decision. Once you surrender your animal to Safe Harbor, it will become legal property of the Humane Society. No information regarding the welfare or outcome of the animal will be released to you or the general public. Safe Harbor is an open admission shelter, and strives to find permanent placement for each animal that comes to our organization.
Surrender Fee*: $39.00 - $50.00 (tax included) per animal. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment. (For small animals, please try to include cage and food, thank you.) Animals being surrendered for aggression and health issues will be $50.00.
