Things to Consider before surrendering

We know that sometimes it’s just not possible to keep a pet. But before making the decision to surrender a pet, please consider all of your options.

  • Contact a trainer or behavior consultants: Here are some we recommend: on our page

  • Many problems can be improved by having your pet spayed or neutered.

  • Are you giving your dog enough exercise?

  • Read about huskies and their behaviors.  We reference “Siberian Huskies for Dummies” which explains many of their behaviors and how to resolve them.

  • Try looking for solution on YOUTUBE. Nowadays there are several help videos to help your dogs.

  • Try support groups for huskies on Facebook. There are several that you can post and many husky owners will help you or guide you


Do’s and Don’ts

If you have to give up your pet, please do the right thing:

DON’T drop your pet off in the woods or countryside, assuming that it can take care of itself. Pets lack the skills to survive on their own and may die of starvation or injury.

DON’T abandon your pet in a house or apartment you are moving out of, thinking that someone will eventually find it. This doesn’t always happen.

DON’T give your pet away to a stranger. You don’t know if that person is a responsible owner or even honest. Pets that end up in the wrong hands may be abused or sold to research laboratories.

DO try to place your pet with a trusted family member or friend, one who you are confident will love and care for your pet properly and will keep you informed of its welfare. Be sure the friend or relative understands the commitment of time and resources your pet requires and that they would like the pet because it will be a good fit for their home. Shelters receive many pets from people who knew the previous owners and wanted to help them by taking in a pet, but who did so without realizing the efforts involved in keeping the animal.

Still wanting to Surrender?

Please remember we do not have a shelter nor boarding facility.   Our focus are dogs from kill shelters first.  However, we do have options, if we have an open foster home or the dog can stay in your home while we help them find a home. 

There is a surrender fee of $100.00 and the dog must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines.  All dogs will be assessed prior to coming to rescue.
