Surrendering Your Pet At the Animal Shelter

There can be many reasons why a pet animal has to be surrendered and Mendocino County Animal Shelter can provide assistance.  We just need a little help from the animal owners. 

In an effort to make the situation easier for the animal, the owner and the Shelter, we’re requiring pet owners to schedule an appointment to surrender their animal.  Having set times and an appointment helps us improve the management of animals at the shelter. 

Please fill out the owner surrender form prior to the appointment date & time.  The owner surrender form assists the staff in finding potential home placement for the surrendered animal.

There is a mandatory $40.00 relinquishment fee for each animal.   

Please contact the Mendocino County Animal Shelter at 463-4427 to speak with staff to arrange a date & time that works for you.  

Thank you.
