We are able to take in a small number of owner surrender pets when space allows, however here at Family Dogs New Life our primary goal is to help those dogs who are at high risk of euthanasia,  therefore we focus on taking dogs from other shelters, rescue groups and humane societies where they are at greater risk.

We do require that all owner surrendered dogs be dog friendly, spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations. If we are able to take your pet into our program we do ask for a donation to help with their care.
We are always happy to post your pet on our Courtesy Postings page to help you in finding them the perfect new family.
Please send us an email if you would like more information about placing your dog with us.

Many rentals do require a ‘pet resume’  to pre-approve pets based on past behavioral, medical, and other attributes.  Don’t know where to start? Check out this template guide https://renttoownlabs.com/pet-resume
