Defenders' doors are always open to help animals in need. If for some reason you need to surrender an animal, please give us a call so we can asses your needs, discuss your options, and schedule an appointment.
However, we believe that giving up an animal to a shelter should be your last resort. Many pets do not thrive in a shelter enviornment, such as animals with anxiety, senior animals, and bonded animals. We are happy to provide helpful resources and alternatives to giving up your pet.
