Dog Surrender Application Process

Most dogs we receive in our care are surrendered by owners that can no longer care for them. We also occasionally pull dogs from shelters as well if they do not thrive in that environment.

Each dog is rehomed to an appropriate family based on our rescue group's best judgement.

Surrender FAQs

Surrendering is when an owner can no longer care for an animal and hands them into our care to find them a responsible home. Please visit our Dog Surrender Process page for more information

We are NOT a boarding facility, doggie daycare or dog sitting service. We do not have the space to take a dog while owners go on vacation, but can recommend several fantastic facilities in our area. Please visit our Dog Surrender Process page for more information

When a dog is surrendered, the owners are required to sign a legal waiver that transfers all its control and care to FHR. They may not have any say on where the said dog goes and they no longer have any ownership rights whatsoever at that time, or in the future. Please visit our Dog Surrender Process page for more information

If we have a foster home available that is the right fit for your dog, we can take it immediately. If we do not, we have to seek out a proper foster home. This can take hours, days, or sometimes weeks. While we make every possible attempt to take every single dog that needs assistance, it is simply not possible, as we do not have a set facility. This is the reason that fostering is so crucial to our rescue. Please visit our Dog Surrender Process page for more information
