Dog Surrender Form

Surrendering of Your Dog

We know that sometimes unfortunate things can happen to individuals and families requiring them to re-home their dog. If you are the owner of a purebred German Shepherd that you can no longer care for, please read the following very carefully and then complete the application below.

Submission of an application is not a guarantee that the dog will be accepted for an “Owner Surrender” with our group. It may take up to several weeks before we can clear a space to bring your dog into our organization because we are always at a capacity. We do our best to help as many dogs as we can, but we receive far more requests for help than we can accommodate.

If we accept your dog into our program, we will need all of the dog’s paperwork, including AKC registration (if any), certificate of sterility, vaccine records from your veterinarian, etc. The more you can tell us about your dog, the easier it will be for him/her to adjust.
