Need to reliquish your pet?

  • We understand the need for some owners to relinquish their pets. At this time, we strongly encourage owners to hold onto their pets.
  • Consider utilizing Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet and the Petco Foundation to help you find a new home for your pet. Click “Learn More” below to get started.
  • Additionally, you will find resources below that may help you keep your pet by addressing medical, behavioral and other concerns

Facing the decision to give up your pet can be devastating and we know it’s not easy. We understand that there are sometimes circumstances that may prevent you from being able to keep your pet, and Regional is here to help.

Pets are often surrendered to a shelter because an owner is unaware of other options or resources that can help the pet remain in their home. We offer resources and other opportunities to help families maintain the bond they have with their pets. If you’ve exhausted these resources, please first consider directly re-homing your pet.
