Surrendering a Lost/Stray Dog or Cat
Broward County Animal Care accepts stray/lost pets from within Broward County during regular business hours. Wait times to surrender a lost pet can vary.
If you are bringing in more then 3 pets at a time, we request that you schedule an appointment in order to expedite service. To make an appointment, please call 954-357-9758, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: No out-of-County surrenders will be accepted. You must bring your Driver's License or other government-issued picture identification with you. We cannot accept a pet without proof of identity.
Surrendering your own Pet Dog or Cat
Surrendering your pet to a shelter should be a last resort. With thousands of dogs and cats coming through our Adoption Center each year, we are often at or near capacity on a daily basis. Therefore, please consider other options before surrendering your pet to any shelter.
All owner surrenders (including emergencies and request for euthanasia) are by appointment only. Please call 954-357-9758 or e-mail email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have been caring for a pet and are turning the pet in to us on behalf of a family member, friend, neighbor or deceased person, an appointment is still required. No out-of-County surrenders will be accepted. Proof of residency is required.
