Owner Relinquishing

Animal Welfare League provides a relinquishment service to the public for pet owners who are unable to keep their pets for whatever reason.

Owner Relinquish Questionnaire

Relinquishment Hours:

Monday – Friday 8am – 8pm
Saturdays – 8am – 7pm
Sundays – Closed
If possible, we ask that you complete the appropriate forms prior to arrival so that we can more quickly process your admission. You can download, print and fill out the forms necessary for relinquishment (below).

This questionnaire and your pet’s veterinary records are critical to our intake process. The more we know about your pet, the better we’re able to place him or her into a new home.


The cost to care for and re-home pets can be in the hundreds of dollars for each animal that comes into our care. AWL asks for a surrender donation of $40 or more to help subsidize this cost. Your pet is not a donation.

The AWL is a private, non-profit organization that does not receive government funding. We are also not affiliated with any national humane organizations.
