Need to Surrender Your Pet?

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. We are also ready to assist you with pet retention resources and assistance programs like our Pet Food Pantry, affordable spay/neuter services, and routine vaccine clinics.

To learn more about surrendering your pet to PARL, please call our shelter to speak with a team member: 401-421-1399.
