Surrender Your Pet

The decision to give up your pet is a very emotional one.

We understand that circumstances change and you may no longer be able to provide the care your pet needs. Before you make this big decision consider the following.

  • Ask your friends and relatives if they can help to foster or adopt the animal.
  • If the change to your circumstances is not permanent, could the animal go to a boarding facility?
  • Talking to one of our friendly staff for advice.

If you decide to proceed, please call our reception on (03) 5248 2091 to make an appointment with one of our staff members.

Filling in the Surrender Animal Profile Form prior to your appointment saves time and allows you to record all relevant information about your pet. The details you provide in this form will assist us to make the best future decisions for your pet. If available, please also bring along your animals vaccination history records.

Please note: Unfortunately, due to the resent outbreak of avian influenza virus (more commonly known as bird flu), we are currently unable to accept the surrender of any birds from the Golden Plaines Shire and Bairnsdale area. We have implemented these controls in line with restrictions imposed by Agriculture Victoria.  If you need further information, please visit the Agriculture Victoria website at www.agriculture.vic.gov.au or on 136 186. 

 We will continue to monitor this situation as it evolves.
