Owner Surrender: Dog - Athens Animal Rescue Shelter
We are only able to accept surrenders from Henderson County Residents.
The surrender fee is $75 for each adult dog. $100 for a litter of
up to 6 puppies + $10 for each additional puppy.

We understand that making the decision to surrender a pet is very difficult.
Answering these questions honestly will not stop the Athens Animal Rescue Shelter
from admitting your animal. It will help ensure that we are able to provide the
correct care and let prospective new owners know their preferences and habits.
Please help us to help your dog.
