Should You Surrender or Rehome Your Pet

Sometimes things happen in life that are beyond your control. Whether because of landlord problems, allergies, relocation, deployment, financial problems, a death in the family, or something else, you may find yourself with no other choice but to give up your pet.
We know how difficult and heartbreaking making this decision can be.
The good news is that you don’t have to surrender your pet to Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter, and you can do it in minutes.  We may be able to provide resources to help you keep your pet in your home. For more information about alternatives to surrendering your pet, please call us at 608.380.1559.
Rivers and Bluffs hosts a rehoming community page on our website where you can post your pet for adoption. Nobody knows your pet better than you! You can provide the best description of their personality and pictures of them in a home setting. Additionally, you would be most knowledgeable when talking to a potential new owner about whether the animal would be a good fit for them. Rehoming your pet this way allows them to stay at home in comfortable surroundings while you select the home that you think will be the best for them. This also leaves one more opening at Rivers and Bluffs for those animals without someone to advocate for them.
This rehoming service is NOT intended for the sale of animals or purposely-bred litters. The goal of the rehoming service is for individual owners to find good, permanent homes for their animals, not to sell animals for a profit. You may, however, ask for a donation as a rehoming fee.
All dogs and cats listed through the rehoming service MUST be spayed/neutered if over the age of 6 months. In addition, all animals posted here must be up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations for their particular species, including rabies and distemper.
