SHS tries to find a home for every pet that enters our care. However, adoption may not always be possible for sick or aggressive animals.
You must be a Shelby County Resident to surrender an animal. If you wish to do so, our hours are as follows:
Sunday – CLOSED FOR INTAKE
Monday – CLOSED FOR HOLIDAY 5/27
Tuesday – 10a-5p
Wednesday – 10a-5p
Thursday – 10a-5p
Friday – 10a-5p
Saturday – 10a-3p
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!
