How do I give up my dog?
You can surrender your dog by taking him to an animal shelter or rescue organization. It’s important to know what will take place once you relinquish your pet to a shelter or rescue and also to be aware that there are alternatives. Some facilities don’t allow walk-in surrenders and almost all charge a fee.

How do you get rid of a dog you no longer want?
If you cannot find a home, foster arrangement, or rescue group that can take your dog, you may need to surrender your dog to the local public animal shelter or to animal control.

Can you rehome a dog with separation anxiety?

Animal neglect situations are those in which the animal’s caretaker or owner fails to provide food, water, shelter or veterinary care sufficient for survival. It can be either deliberate or unintentional, but either way, the animal suffers terribly.
