Pet Intake Request

Life happens, and sometimes it becomes a challenge to keep your pet in your family. We have resources to help! But if finding a new home and family for your pet is the best option, we can help with that too.

Buncombe Country residents seeking to surrender their pets are requested to contact us as soon as possible to allow us time to work the animal in, if we can. Please complete the form below to submit your animal’s intake request.

Alternatives to Surrendering your Pet:

GET YOUR PET is an online community that directly connects people who need to give up a pet with people who want to adopt. Pet adoption made easy! This website is devoting to making the transition easier for pets moving from one family to another without having to enter the shelter system. Visit to find your pet a new home.

COURTESY POSTING on our website (and all adoption sites linked to it) is available for animals who are spayed/neutered and up-to-date on rabies vaccinations. This service is helpful for caretakers who want to have a voice in the process of screening applicants and who are willing to keep their pet in the home until a new home is found. The owner will screen and adopt the animal out on their own, and it is up to the caretakers if they want to charge a rehoming fee. To have your pet listed, please complete the form here!
