For many people, surrendering a pet can be
emotionally upsetting. Often a pet is surrendered because an owner simply has
no choice, or is unaware of resources that can help keep them together with their pet. The Buncombe County Animal Shelter staff and volunteers recognize and appreciate this may be a
very difficult time for you and your family. Please know we are here to assist
you and to care for your pet if you must surrender. After working with the Shelter you may find there are other alternatives than surrendering your beloved pet.
