IMPORTANT: PLEASE CALL BEFORE COMING BY TO SURRENDER AN ANIMAL!!!
WE ARE ALMOST ALWAYS AT 100% CAPACITY WITH A WAIT LIST FOR SURRENDERS.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT DROP-BY SURRENDERS.
Have you found an animal in need or do you need to surrender a pet? Here at CLIMATES-Rescue, we can help!
In the event that you are no longer able to care for your pet, we can provide them with a healthy, happy life. Our goal is to ensure that every animal has a loving home with an owner who can provide all of the attention and care they need. If you can no longer provide this for your pet, we can possibly help.
Every year, many animals are left on our doorstep in the middle of the night. Please call us for a person-to-person surrender instead! Predators and temperature changes can harm the animal, not to mention that it is stressful for your pet.
Instead, call our emergency number at (866) 488-4248 any time, day or night, to surrender your animal. We ask only for a small surrender fee to provide care for your animal while in quarantine. PLEASE CALL BEFORE COMING BY TO SURRENDER AN ANIMAL!!!
An in-person surrender also allows us to get as much information about the animal as possible, including age, current diet, health problems, and behavioral problems. This is all crucial to making sure we find an awesome new home for your pet.
We are able to take in animals that other shelters do not including reptiles, birds, amphibians, and arthropods, as well as all kinds of mammals, not just dogs and cats. However, we are a small facility and often have no extra space for new animals.
PLEASE NOTE: You must surrender your animal in an appropriate travel container, cage, tank, or other enclosure, and with any leftover food, so we can make sure they transition into our care as easily as possible. Please call us before coming to our facility to surrender your animal!
If you need to report an orphaned, sick, or injured wild animal, call (866) 488-4248 on our Emergency Rescue Line to speak to a live human being 24/7. We are currently not taking in sick or injured wildlife, but can refer you to a permitted wildlife rehabilitator who can help! (Please do NOT come to our facility with any animal.)
IMPORTANT! Before you “rescue” any wild animal, make sure the animal really needs your help. Often, mothers leave babies in order to forage, and well-meaning Good Samaritans try to “save” them when they were actually in no danger. Unless the animal is in immediate danger, please don’t attempt to approach or move it. Remember, some diseases can be passed from animals to humans. Call right away if you are not sure what to do.
