Help With Your Pet
I can’t look after my pet anymore
Surrendering your family pet to a shelter should be the last option for any family to have to make. We can help families who can not care for their pets and find them new homes but we are also here to help those families who are struggling with any behaviour problems. DSPCA dog training can help you with training which could help you having to make that very tough decision in giving up your beloved family pet so please just ask us for that help!
Make sure that you have really thought long and hard about giving up your pet to the DSPCA before starting this process. As a rescue we do have a waiting list for Owner Surrenders so please be patient with us. Once your completed Owner Surrender form has been submitted a staff member will contact you when we have space to take in your pet.
Owners Surrender Forms
I adopted my pet from the DSPCA and can’t care for it anymore
We will ALWAYS take back a pet that was adopted from the DSPCA. Please do not attempt to sell him/her online. Please email the adoptions team at Return A Dog or Return A Cat with all the details and we will arrange for your DSPCA adopted pet to be returned to the shelter. Please don't just arrive to the shelter with your pet, we will arrange for your pet to be returned to the shelter by appointment. We need to make sure that we have space to take him/her back.
