Surrendering an Animal

Send surrender request.

Freetown Farm Sanctuary is a no-kill rescue, and we never euthanize an animal to make room for another.   Due to the high volume of surrender requests that we receive daily, we are ONLY able to accept animals as space allows, and we have all required information.  If you would like to send information on an animal you would like to surrender, please complete the form below.

A photo is also REQUIRED with your surrender application.  Please send a seperate photo to

If you have not received a response within five business days, please refer to the list below for further assistance in placing the animals with another rescue/shelter.

Surrender Fee
Individual Animal = $40

*Please note: Due to rising costs for heartworm treatment and rising numbers of heartworm positive dogs, there is an additional $200 fee to surrender a dog who tests positive for heartworms. If the dog is 6 months old or older, a heartworm test must be done prior to surrender. Heartworms are deadly but preventable – please check with your vet about the best options for keeping your pets heartworm-free.

Please answer these questions to the best of your abilities.
