Owner Surrenders

The decision to surrender a companion is never an easy one.

We here at Panhandle Humane Society work hard to ensure every animal in our care, regardless of circumstance, is treated with kindness, love, and respect.  

If, for any reason, an owner feels the need to surrender their pet, they are welcome here at Panhandle Humane Society 

as space and resources allow. We are required to maintain available space for stray animals that are brought in by the police or the public. We ask that you only consider surrendering your pet to our shelter as a last resort after you have exhausted all other options. These options may include training or rehoming your pet yourself.

Here are some resources for rehoming your pet:


In order to ensure resources are ready and available when a pet arrives, Panhandle Humane Society requires a scheduled surrender appointment.  Without an appointment process, we would have no control over the number

of pets that come into our care each day, and our ability to provide the best possible care for each animal would be hindered. Call (308) 635-0922.
