Surrender Inquiry

If you have an animal you cannot keep, you may use this form to see if we can help your animal or if we have other resources to help you. We often cannot take animals. As a no-kill for-life sanctuary, our ability to intake dogs and cats is limited by space and resources. It may take up to five days to get back to you after you send your request. Photos are mandatory - if you cannot provide them, we may not be able to help you. If we cannot take your animal, we will gladly provide a courtesy listing on adoptapet for you with your contact information. We usually do not take surrendered animals. If the animal is heartworm positive we will not be able to take them. We do not usually accept puppies, pit bulls, shepherds or huskies. We do not arrange transport further south than Baltimore, further north than Harrisburg, further west than Gettysburg, or further east than Lancaster. If the animal is coming from a state other than Pennsylvania we will require a certificate of health signed by a veterinarian and a current rabies certificate. If you have questions regarding your request, please send an email to the rescue committee at
