FHS would like be a pet owner’s last resort for surrendering their pets. Before relinquishing a pet, please explore every possible alternative including friends or relatives. Here is an Article on pet-friendly housing How To Find Pet-Friendly Housing as well as pet-friendly apartment search Pet-Friendly Apt Search. Although we do our best, we are open admissions and accept everything that comes in the front door. We try our best with every pet that is in our care but we cannot guarantee that every pet will be adopted.

Relinquishment counseling enables us to see if we can provide a service to help the owner prevent the surrender. Services include: advice on behavior issues, pet food from our Food Bank, low cost medical services and advice on other placement options that would be in the best interest of the animal.
