Cat Surrender Form

Note: Due to the number of cats and kittens currently in our rescue (we have recently accepted several that will be available soon), we are unable to accept any more cats or kittens at this time. Please contact another rescue or the local humane society. Thank you. 

Fill out the form below and we will be in contact with you.

If at any point you should need to reach our team we can be contacted via email or Facebook.

Please keep in mind we are an all volunteer rescue, and we will respond as quickly as we can, your patience is greatly appreciated.

This form is not a contract and filling out this form does not obligate you in any way to surrender your pet.

One of our volunteers will let you know how we can help you.

Please note that there is a $40 surrender fee for cats (if there is more than one animal, you will be charged individually for each).

Completion of this form DOES NOT GUARANTEE that we will be able to take your Animal.

As a volunteer foster-based rescue, the decision to accept your Animal into our program must be based on foster availability and suitability.

We fully realize that the decision to surrender your pet is a difficult one. Please know that we are here to help. You have made this decision in the best interest of your pet and we will strive to make the process as easy as we can for both of you. Rest assured that we will do our best to work quickly to find your pet his/her new fur-ever home.

  1. I hereby certify that I am the rightful owner/keeper/caretaker/custodian of the animal(s) who is/are the subject of this Animal Surrender Form, hereinafter referred to as “the Animal.” I hereby surrender any and all rights to the Animal.
  2. I certify that no other person has a right of property to the Animal. I understand that, by surrendering my rights to the Animal, the Animal may be transferred into the custody of Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex (SCAR).
