What is appointment based intake?

Appointment Based intake is a form of managed intake to better serve the community and the animals in our care. With this type of intake process, the citizens that are faced with relinquishment of their pet will have a qualified shelter personnel assist with any pet related concerns and provide rehoming resources for those who do not want to surrender the pet to the shelter. If surrendering is the only option, we will schedule an appointment for intake of the pet.

The owners will be provided with the surrender forms prior to the appointment date for completion. This will decrease the wait time and inconvenience of the lengthy surrender process.
