surrender a pet



When an animal is surrendered to MCHS:

  • The animal will be checked by a veterinarian and any necessary medical treatments will be completed at MCHS's discretion.

  • MCHS is a "no-kill" facility, meaning we 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, and any other rights that you may have had as an owner of the animal.

  • MCHS reserves the right to withhold any and all information pertaining to the animal from you and any person acting on your behalf.

Please be prepared to provide photos of the animal, veterinary records, and 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.
