Surrender Your Cat

Surrender Your Cat

Thinking of surrendering your cat?

We know that sometimes life happens and people find themselves unable to properly care for their animal. Our greatest fear is that someone will feel so desperate that they consider giving or selling their animal to a stranger.  Without the required references and home checks performed by rescue groups, animals run the risk of being placed into unhealthy and abusive homes. We want to ensure your loved one gets the home they deserve.

Before you make the decision to surrender, give away, or sell your animal, we may be able to help you find solutions that will allow you to keep your animal as a member of the family. While we can't guarantee miracles, we do have extensive experience dealing with a multitude of issues and can certainly offer suggestions and alternatives to giving up your animal.


Criteria to surrender your cat to All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions.

We understand that sometimes despite best efforts it is necessary to surrender your cat. In this case, we feel the best solution is for All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions to take the cat and find them a new, loving home.

Based on urgency and foster home space availability, All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions does take in cats surrendered by their owners. Please understand that because we have very limited resources, it's necessary for us to prioritize the cats we take into rescue. Shelter cats in danger of being euthanized are given first and top priority. Next are cats in need of immediate health care that their owners cannot provide. Then, owner surrenders are considered. Please be patient with us and we will do our best to work with you to ensure the safety and well-being of your cat.
PLEASE NOTE: Completion of this form does not guarantee a spot at our rescue. You will receive a follow-up email or phone call from All Fur One regarding this form and any additional information needed to move forward once we have space.

Surrendering your Cat to All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions is a permanent decision.

All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions knows that surrendering your cat is a very difficult decision, but sometimes - it is the only one to make. If you choose to surrender your cat, you'll be asked to complete a surrender contract. Your signature on this contract represents a permanent decision on your part. This legally binding contract gives full ownership of the cat to All Fur One Pet Rescue & Adoptions. This allows us to provide veterinary care and down the road, legally adopt out the cat to a carefully pre-screened 'forever' home. Please note: We consider adoptions through our organization to be closed, meaning that we do not reveal the identities of either the surrendering or adopting parties. This ensures your privacy, as well as the privacy of the adopter, will be protected.
