Rehoming a Pet
The Pennsylvania SPCA offers an owner surrender program for pets that meet certain criteria as space in our shelter becomes available. For a small fee of $50, we will find a new home for your pet. The PSPCA is Philadelphia’s largest no-kill shelter, with a save rate of 97%. We will never euthanize an animal for space or time. If we are unable to accept your pet into our shelter, we will direct you to another shelter. The Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly) also accepts owner surrender pets. Visit the ACCT Philly web site for more information.
Individuals who wish to surrender a pet or stray must first fill the questionnaire below so that we can obtain as much information as possible about the animal. A staff member will review the information and contact you about next steps. A meet and a greet may be scheduled for you to bring the animal in for evaluation prior to being accepted. All meetings are by appointment.
