Surrender Your Pet

When you have exhausted all avenues and have no other options, you can surrender your pet to our shelter if you live in Oak Ridge city.  Please make sure to bring a valid driver’s license, all vet records and the $10 surrender fee.  The shelter only accepts cash or check.

It is important to make sure to tell the staff member checking your pet in as much information as possible.  We need to know if your animal has any health issues, if it gets along with other animals, children, men/women. Filling out the Pet History form below greatly helps us find your pet the best possible home.

Once an animal has been surrendered to the shelter, it is immediately available for adoption.
