The decision to surrender your pet is never an easy one. Knowing that you have a compassionate and caring resource to turn to can ease this difficult process. Feel free to contact us if you any questions or need advice regarding your situation.
If you ultimately decide that surrendering your pet is the right decision for you, please take the time to download and fill out our Owner Surrender form. Information from this form will provide us with background information about your pet and will aide us in finding a suitable home for your pet.
Cowley County Residents: Calling to schedule an appointment for drop off is highly encouraged to ensure that the staff can assist you and your pet in a timely manner. Financial contributions are requested, appreciated, and will directly impact your surrendered pet, however, they are not required if you reside inside of Cowley County.
Non Cowley County Residents: Calling to schedule an appointment with the Director is required. We will ask for you to complete an owner surrender profile for the animal(s) you would like to surrender to ensure they are eligible for our adoption or rescue programs. There is a minimum $50 surrender fee required per animal or $70 surrender fee per litter. Additionally, a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection and some veterinary services are also required.
If you find a stray animal, please contact your local humane society, police department, animal control officer or city building for instructions. It is essential that stray animals be held in the jurisdiction they are found, so we do not accept strays animals found outside of Cowley County.

We are committed to finding homes for the animals in our care. Our adoption program places over a thousand lost, abandoned and unwanted pets with loving families each year.
Don't forget to visit the Adoptable Dogs and Adoptable Cats pages to view the animals waiting for homes and our Adoptions page to learn more about our adoption process.
It is important to visit the Humane Society at least every 48 hours to see if your animal is here. Telephone information alone may not be sufficient to identify your animal. We urge you to visit us in person to positively identify your animal. Bringing a current photo will help with identification. Your visit could help expedite a reunion with your pet, as animals often lose their collars and tags. If your animal is at the Humane Society, it will be held for 3 to 5 full business days(depending on where the animal was picked up), not including the day it came in on. After this time period has elapsed, the animal will become property of the Cowley County Humane Society.
