SURRENDERING YOUR PET
Before You Decide to Surrender
We understand that certain circumstances can arise which result in a need for rehoming a pet. It can be a difficult and painful decision to come to! It is always best if a pet can remain in its home and not face the stress and confusion of being surrendered.
If you are considering surrender due to behavioral issues, our dog trainer Dave is here to help! Private lessons are available starting at $40. For more information or to schedule a lesson, give us a call at
