Despite our best efforts and loving care, the shelter environment can be very stressful for animals. If you're able to keep your pet in your home while searching for placement, or awaiting a surrender appointment at PARL, please consider using a rehoming services like Rehome. You can create a profile for your pet, screen applications, and complete the rehoming process with guidance from Adopt-a-Pet.com. Adopt-a-Pet will charge the adopter a fee, which will benefit a shelter of your choice.
PARL does not recommend posting your pet on websites and community pages such as Craigslist. Many 'Free to a Good Home' cases have resulted in animal cruelty or scams.
PARL is an open adoption shelter that manages intake, meaning we accept surrenders by appointment to make sure we have the proper resources and space to help your pet. Sometimes, especially during Covid-19, our facility is full to current capacity and all appointments are booked. In these cases, we may use a Wait List or refer you to other organizations and agencies that may be able to help.
Please complete a Surrender Profile for your animal(s) and we will connect with you as soon as possible. The profile helps us to better understand your pet(s) and their unique situation and individual needs. Please be as thorough and honest as possible. Thank you!
**September 6, 2022: These are very challenging times for animal shelters across the nation. We, like many other shelters, are receiving an unprecedented number of pet surrender requests each and every day. Our facility is full to current capacity for care. Future surrender appointments have been booked for several weeks in advance, and we are currently using a Wait List for all new inquires. The estimated wait time for pet surrender intake is several weeks to several months. If you need to surrender your pet, please begin planning for this process with as much advance notice as possible and inquire with all other organizations and rescue groups in your area. We also encourage utilizing Rehome, the pet rehoming service from Adopt-A-Pet. We sincerely thank you for your understanding! **
