Our shelter provides housing for domestic dogs and cats only. We do not take in birds, reptiles, or other small mammals. Additionally, our shelter is a limited intake facility, meaning that animals surrendered to us need to meet specific requirements in order for us to accept them. Only residents of Plymouth with proof of residency may surrender their animals to our shelter. Upon beginning the surrender process you will be asked questions about your pet including but not limited to medical history, behavioral problems, bite history, etc.
First, consider an alternative to surrendering your pet. There are many resources that can help with behavior problems, moving, military deployment, economic hardship, and other issues. If you must give up your pet and have no other option, consider keeping your pet until you can find a permanent home for the animal, or contact a rescue group. A shelter environment can be very stressful to an animal. If you cannot resolve the challenges you are having with your pet and you are unable to rehome your pet, please call our shelter at 508-888-1186.
