Owner Surrender Information
Chicago Animal Advocates currently does accept owner surrenders, but only if we have the space to do so, and on a case by case basis. We are a small organization with limited funding, and our priority are animals in animal control facilities.
We currently accept: cats, dogs, chickens, guinea pigs, and other small animals (no rabbits at this time).
We understand life doesn't always work out the way you want it to, and difficult decisions have to be made. If we cannot accept an animal, we will provide you with as much information as we can to aid you in re-homing your pet.
If you would like to surrender your animal please fill out the application below. NOTE: filling out this application does NOT automatically mean your animal will be accepted in our organization. After your application is reviewed, a Chicago Animal Advocates representative will contact you.
We do require a fee for owner surrenders. Animals that have been spayed or neutered have a $50.00 surrender fee, and animals that are not are $75.00 - cats and dogs only.
