***Freedom Tails Rescue reserves the right to not accept animals we feel would not be suitable for adoption***

Current economic and financial difficulties have affected most everyone these days. In dealing with financial hardship, we all have to make tough decisions. If you have found yourself out of money and out of answers, we would like to help. If you are reading this you have probably considered surrendering your pet, but your torn because you don’t want your beloved pet to end up in a cage for the rest of their life. Freedom Tails Rescue understands, and we would like to help. When considering surrendering your pet, we suggest you try the following items listed below first.


  • Have you spoken to friends, family, co-workers, or anyone who might consider taking your pet? Ask them if they know of anyone who is looking for a pet.

  • If buying food is the issue, local food pantries also offer assistance with pet food. Please consult your county government, local church or food pantry in your area for further details.

  • If veterinary expenses are the problem, talk to your vet and discuss what services are absolutely necessary, and which ones can maybe wait. Visit the American Humane Societies they have a “Tips for Homeowners” with pets who are facing foreclosure.

  • If your pet is just not adjusting or seems hard to handle, consider taking your pet to an obedience class or consult a professional trainer.

  If you have tried some or all of the suggestions listed above, we will try to help in any way we can. You must be the legal owner of the animal you are surrendering, and the pet must have been in your custody for the past 7 days. You will need to fill out our Owner Surrender Form below. Once we have received your Owner Surrender form we will call you or contact you via email to further discuss your situation. An appointment will be made for you, but Freedom Tails Rescue reserves the right to not accept animals we feel would not be suitable for rehoming. All medical records and information about the health and care of your pet should be brought with. This will help us assess the overall health of your pet, and also prevents unnecessary expenses.
