We understand that giving up a pet can be a difficult decision and should be done with much careful thought. If you are considering surrendering your pet, we ask that you please submit this form for cats or this form for dogs and wait for a staff member to contact you to make an appointment to bring in your pet for an evaluation. North Country Animal League accepts, by appointment, animals brought to us from Lamoille County.
If space is available, we will accept animals from other areas, however, Lamoille County animals are given priority. We are a limited-access facility and do not euthanize animals for space, therefore we have to schedule new animals coming into our facility carefully to ensure there is space. We do our best to accommodate emergency situations and we’re happy to offer support and supplies until the next available appointment.
The NCAL HAPPI Program is an alternative option for persons wishing to surrender their dog or cat. The dog or cat is still tested and must meet the requirements for entrance, but the animal is kept at home until an appropriate new home is found. NCAL advertises the dog or cat, and people interested work directly with the owner.
