Surrendering An Animal
Posted On April 12, 2016
Please do not call us to surrender your animal. We get 25-30 requests per week . Please provide by email, the following information about the dog (s) you are surrendering. There is no guarantee we can help, but with some information we can at least determine if we can assist you with finding your dog a good home . We are foster based, we cannot take dogs in 1-2 days because you have an emergency . We are always short on foster homes. They are at a premium. Its impossible to help emergently. If you need help within days , please reach out to other local rescues or Facebook to network your dog. We have dogs coming out our ears .Over 300 Siberian huskies are surrendered to local shelters monthly in Southern Ca. Close to 300 are sitting right now and there are not enough rescues to help them, much less private parties.
Your Husky you have right now deserves you to go all out for him/her to find a new home. It is an illusion to think many dogs find good homes when they are left at city, county,and even humane shelters. Most never make it back out. If we can’t physically take your pet, we can offer suggestion and help network them for a good home. We can even talk about solutions to maybe issues that are causing you to want to surrender your family member.
