Surrendering A Cat

Need to Surrender Your Cat? Are you a Puget Sound family that needs to find a new home for your cat? Purrfect Pals may be able to help you. However, please keep in mind that we receive between 50 and 100 surrender requests every day. Because of this, we are not able to take every single cat. We limit our intake based on the current capacity of individual colony rooms and adoption rooms at our shelter. Please Note: It is important that stray animals be taken to a shelter where the owner may come to look for the animal. Purrfect Pals accepts owner-surrendered cats and kittens but we are not contracted to accept strays. Please refer to our list of local shelters who accept stray animals. Before making the decision to rehome your cat, we encourage you to visit our Cat Resources Library. We have provided articles, videos and other resources to help you tackle kitty’s behavioral challenges and more. When space permits, we accept adoptable cats for placement in new homes. In all cases we encourage you to provide medical records (as complete as possible). When space permits, we also accept special needs cats including those who have tested positive for FIV and/or Feline Leukemia (FeLV). Because these areas of our sanctuary are typically at capacity, it is important that you contact Purrfect Pals early so that we can advise you on our current capacity and whether we anticipate openings in the near future. If we agree to take your cat, we will schedule an appointment with you. It is critical that you arrive at the required time, or call us if you are going to be late (or need to cancel). The surrender process takes between 30 minutes and an hour on average. It is also important to know that we will ask you for a donation to help with the care of your cat and the other cats at the shelter. Purrfect Pals spends, on average, about $375 per cat at our shelter. When surrendering your cat, we encourage you to make a final gift to your cat to ensure that your kitty and all the other kitties at Purrfect Pals continue to receive the best care possible. Your donation is NOT a requirement and the amount of your donation, if any, will have no bearing on our decision whether to accept your animal. If we do not have space for your cat, please check out our list of other Puget Sound shelters and rescue groups who accept owned cats and kittens.

Surrendering your pet to the shelter should be your last resort. With more than 18,000 coming through our doors each year, the shelter is at or near capacity on a daily basis. We need your help to keep animals out of the shelter and in homes. We only accept pets from Travis County and the City of Austin.

Separation of animals from their family can be traumatic, so we want the process to cause the least amount of stress to both you and your pet. We are here to assist you in determining the best options for your pet, whether helping you to keep your pet at home, finding alternative placement for your pet, or surrendering your pet to BAHS.

The MSPCA is an open admission Adoption Center, which means we never turn an animal or an owner away. We receive more than 9,000 animals at our Adoption Centers each year. We have many wonderful success stories of finding homes for pets who are brought to us. At the same time, while we try our best to find homes for every animal that is brought to us, we are often faced with difficult euthanasia decisions when an animal is not medically or behaviorally sound for adoption. We do not make this decision based on length of stay or space. The adoption center environment can be a very stressful place for a pet. While we do our best to make each animal feel as comfortable as possible, it is not a home. It is for this reason that we look to you to try everything you can to work on the situation you are facing before surrendering your animal to us.

There are several limited admission shelters and rescue groups throughout the state of Massachusetts. Most limited admission shelters and rescue groups do not euthanize animals but work off of a waiting lists if they are full and will only take in animals they are confident they will be able to place in an adoptive home. We recommend you contact limited admission rescue and shelter groups before bringing your pet to the MSPCA. Click here for a list of limited admission shelters in Massachusetts.
