Home Pet Q&A Dog Questions How Do I Surrender My Husky?

How Do I Surrender My Husky?

The answer to, "how do I surrender my Husky," depends on where you live and the specific rules of your local shelters. Generally speaking, you'll be asked to complete an interview with an intake specialist, pay a surrender fee, and then sign over the rights to your dog. Once you do, what happens next is entirely at the discretion of the shelter. For that reason, it's important to understand what it means to surrender your pet before giving up your Husky. 

Will They Find Him a Good Home?

Maybe. The truth is shelters do their best to rehome all their dogs, but it's not always possible. Also, some shelters have lower save rates than others, and there are many factors that contribute to this.

Doing a little rehome_research may give you peace of mind about the possible outcomes for your pet—or may make you want to find a different path. Either way, avoiding a shelter is the better option for several reasons, including that it relieves the stress of caring for more pets from overtaxed shelters and many dogs don't do well in a shelter environment.

Is There Another Option? 

If you'd like a different option, consider talking to a reputable private rescue. You may be able to find a breed-specific rescue that is willing to take your Husky. Another thing to consider is rehoming your dog yourself. This will take a bit more time and effort, but will be totally worth it to have the peace of mind of knowing your pet is in a safe and loving home.

If you like the idea of rehoming him yourself but aren't sure where to start, check out the Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com website.
