When surrendering a pet:

  • You must be 19 years of age or older.
  • Bring your ID or utility bill with your name and Shelby County address on it.
  • If you are surrendering your own animal, please bring any of your pet’s veterinary records or any medications they may require.
  • It’s free to surrender your animal, however, it costs approximately $15 a day for each pet in our care. Donations are appreciated!
