Pets are accepted by appointment
- Call 253-249-7849 to schedule an appointment to surrender your pet
- Complete online and print out AVHS My Cat’s Meow Questionnaire or AVHS My Dog’s Bark Questionnaire to provide us with the behavior traits about your animal.
- Bring the questionnaire, current ID, and a copy of your pet’s veterinary records to the appointment
- After all information about your pet has been gathered and the animal assessment evaluation is completed, we will discuss your options with you so you can make the best decision for your pet.
AVHS charges a fee for surrendering your pet to us for adoption. It’s costly to care for your pet, provide medical treatment, spay or neuter and behavior therapy (if needed) before placing your pet in a loving, forever home.
