Pet Surrender & Re-Homing

Fremont and Custer County

Please consider surrendering your pet to an animal shelter if all other options have been exhausted. Separating your pet from his or her family and then leaving them in an animal shelter is highly stressful to pets. Some pets have a difficult time no longer being with their humans, so adjusting to life in a noisy and stressful environment like an animal shelter can be rather difficult on many pets. 

We understand that sometimes an owner is not able to continue caring for their pet. So, if you need to find a new home for your pet, the best thing you can do for your pet is to contact friends, family members or co-workers, as they may be able to provide a safe and loving home for your pet. You can also contact one of many Colorado based rescue groups to re-home your pet. Call the shelter at (719) 275-0663 so we can assist you with rescues.

Here is a free guide you can go over and will help you find a new home for your pet:

The Humane Society of Fremont County will only accept animals only from residents of Fremont and Custer County, Colorado. You will be asked to fill out a surrender form, sign a legal release of ownership, and provide us with a photo ID.

We treat all animals as individuals so we know some animals take longer to adopt, some may need in-house or outside behavioral training, and some may require medical care. All of this is a potential added cost to the shelter. For this reason, a small percentage of surrendered animals 'might' require an additional fee to our normal surrender fees.

Keeping Your Pet

The issue you are experiencing with your pet may easily be fixable with the right support. Many problems can be addressed over the telephone so give us a buzz! We may be able to offer solutions to behavior problems, offer you other placement ideas, or help get your pet spayed or neutered so that you will be able to keep your pet.

Please call the Humane Society of Fremont County at (719) 275-0663 or fill out our contact form after hours. One of our staff members will call you back as soon as we can. Of course, you can bring your pet in without calling the shelter if this is more convenient for you, but you would be surprised at how many times we have been able to help people after one simple phone call.
