Important Information Regarding Surrendering Your Pet

It is important to understand that when surrendering a pet or stray to the shelter that you are relinquishing all legal rights to the animal as your property under law. The pet being surrendered will become the sole property of the Hernando SPCA and you will no longer have any say regarding its care.

We request that after you surrender your pet to the Hernando SPCA that YOU DO NOT come in for visits as it may cause a delay in their acclimation into the shelter and is counterproductive in the re-homing process.

SURRENDER DISCLAIMER- Any person who surrenders a cat or dog to our shelter will not be approved to adopt a pet from us for 1 year of the date of surrender.
