Surrendering Your Pet

Information & Alternative Options

Dog House_edited.png


Making the decision to rehome a pet can be a difficult one and there are many reasons a family feels they can no longer care for a beloved pet. We strive, first and foremost, to be a resource for our community and to provide solutions for these reasons. Please see call the shelter for helpful tips and possible solutions to common issues many pet families may face. If these resources do not provide a solution for your family, please consider rehoming your pet through the Home to Home program or contact us to learn more about our intake process. In order to reduce stress on pets currently in our care and those coming into the shelter the Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter schedules appointments for pet surrenders. This allows us to better manage our resources, including appropriate, enriched housing and daily human attention to the physical and emotional needs of the pets in our care.  Please contact the shelter at (406)889-5457 for more information about our intake process.
