Canine Intake Process

Intake Delay

UPDATE 11.4.2022:  We are moving into our new shelter space the week of November 21.  During this time, we are limiting our intakes in order to safely move while maintaining a high standard of care for our shelter animals.  Thank you for your understanding.

Animal Friends Alliance Canine Intake Process

As a limited-admission shelter, we cannot accept walk-ins. We can only bring in new dogs as dogs with similar needs are adopted.  Please fill out our Intake Consultation Form to start the process of relinquishing/surrendering your pet. A staff member will contact you upon receipt of the form.

Please note:

All dogs will be placed on a waiting list. Completing the consultation form does not guarantee that Animal Friends Alliance will be able to take your dog.

Animal Friends Alliance is not a boarding facility. When you surrender your dog to us, you are relinquishing ownership of your animal and are not guaranteed to be able to adopt your animal back.
