Surrender Prevention Options

ACC’s goal is to work with pet owners, empowering you to take an active role in determining the best outcome for your pets. We encourage all pet owners to consider other options for help or private rehoming prior to surrendering your pet to one of our centers. While we never turn away a pet in need, we are also here to help you keep your pet.
