Animal Admissions

Turning in a Pet

Surrendering Your Pet to the CNY SPCA

Giving up a pet is a very difficult and emotional decision. At CNYSPCA, we understand that some circumstances cannot be overcome and we offer shelter and care for these pets. We are only able to accept owner surrenders from Onondaga County.  We are unable to accept animals that are in need of medical care or euthanasia or animals that have bitten.  For those services please contact your veterinarian.  We can only accept animals based on available space and appointments MUST be made for surrender.  

We want to provide your pet with the best possible care we can for their well being and in order to give them the best possible chance for adoption into a loving home. We need your help to make this possible.We ask for a minimum service fee when you are turning in your pet(s).

Please call us to schedule an appointment to bring in an animal at 315-454-4479.
