surrendering your pet

Surrendering your pet to the shelter should be your last resort. With more than 3,500 pets coming through our doors each year, the shelter is at or near capacity on a daily basis. We need your help to keep animals out of the shelter and in homes. We only accept pets from unincorporated Fort Bend County.

Before you bring your pet to the shelter, please try the following:

Local rescue groups will often assist, depending on space and resources.

Have you tried re-homing your pet on your own?

As the pet's current owner, you are in a better position to find a new home or your pet because you know them best.

If you have made efforts to re-home your pet and have been unsuccessful, you can surrender your pet to us by calling 281-342-1512 to check space availability.  Please note that by surrendering your pet as an owner-turn-in, your pet may be EUTHANIZED immediately after surrender.  There will be a $35 fee to surrender your pet (credit card or money order only).
