Owner Surrenders

Pets are given up for a number of reasons: financial concerns, illness, moving to a home that doesn’t welcome pets, allergies, pet behavior issues, and unwanted litters, just to name a few.

ReJoyceful Rescue offers many resources to help keep animals in loving homes. We urges pet owners to consider other options before surrendering their animal. We understand that there are times when keeping a pet is just not possible. Please review the following information for our surrender policy and process. **Please note: We are a foster-based rescue. All animals brought into our care are placed into foster homes. We do not have a shelter facility. We cannot take every animal we receive a request for,  however we do our best to place those most in need**
