What materials should I bring with me if I’m looking to surrender an animal to Francisvale?
When surrendering an animal that had a previous owner, it is a good idea to bring all medical documentation about the animal with you. Having proper documentation will allow us to evaluate the animal more accurately and understand its needs and will help speed up the timeline for finding the pet a new home. We also accept stray animals at the shelter, which will understandably have no documentation.
