Surrendering a pet is difficult and often heartbreaking decision for you and your dog.

We consider our Goldens to be members of the family. Sometimes, life circumstances change in ways that force relinquishing your pet, but many times we see companion animals given up because of an unwanted behavior. Before you give up on your pet, please consult a reputable trainer or animal behaviorist for assistance. The situation may be reversible with training or simple adjustments in your household.

If you must surrender your dog, we ask that you read our process and intake checklist in advance of your appointment for the smoothest possible transition. The more we understand about your dog, the better able we will be to ensure its care. When relinquishing your dog, we will ask that you sign a Surrender Contract.
