We understand that surrendering a pet can be a very difficult and emotional time, and we aim to support you through this process. If you are unable to find a suitable home, please contact the Centre to be placed on our waiting list. We usually need to make space for new admissions, so the wait time can be a few weeks. Therefore, it is important to contact us as soon as possible if you have a specific date that you need to rehome your pet by.
We need to gain as much information as possible regarding your animal prior to arranging to take them into the Centre. There is a form available for you to register them with us – Animal Surrender form.
This form is contained within a separate database site so does not resemble the RSPCA Cornwall Branch website, but this is normal. Your information will be saved confidentially into the database and is also sent to us by email. There is no need to do anything further.
Once our Animal Care staff have reviewed your form, they may contact you if they have any queries or need clarification on the information you have provided. They may be able to give you an idea of the timescale, but as we usually need to rehome animals already in our care first, we may not be able to confirm this immediately.
We have a managed intake at the Centre to ensure that there are sufficient staff and volunteers to give the level of care that each animal needs.
We DO NOT euthanize animals to make room for new ones.
If you have any queries or need help completing the form, please contact us.
