Need to Rehome Your Pet or Stray

If you have found a stray, you must notify the Animal Control Office in your area; it's the law!

To Surrender Your Pet

1. Complete the  "Surrender Form"  and email a current picture of the animal(s) to Cabarruspets@gmail.com. Our team will not review incomplete forms.

2. Our goal is to contact each applicant within 4 days. If we cannot assist you, an email with additional resources will be sent. 

3. Be honest! Knowing about the dog/cat helps us quickly determine if we are able to assist you.

If You Found a Stray- the law requires you to notify animal control in your county

  • Have animal control, a veterinarian, or an animal rescue scan for a microchip
  • Post pictures on "lost and found pets" social media pages and post flyers in your area 
  • Put up poster where you found them and look online to see if anyone is looking for them
  • Don't give full details and require that people provide proof of ownership to claim

Have done all of these things and still no owner, fill out this  "Surrender Form"

Community Foster Program

O ur ability to help you is affected by the number of foster homes and resources available. Because the need to rehome pets often surpasses the number of foster homes, we created the Community Foster Program. This program is a partnership between you and Cabarrus Pets Society with you providing the home and lots of love and CPS providing medical care and food. We will advertise and screen applicants and once a forever home is found your job is done.  If interested in the Community Foster Program, make sure to note it on the Surrender Form or email us at Cabarruspets@gmail.com.

If you have found a stray, you must notify the Animal Control Office in your area; it's the law!
