  Relinquish Policy

If you would like to have a cat or dog considered for acceptance into LIFE House, you may send a email to Relinquish@lifehouse4animals.org. We are a limited access facility and there is a screening process for accepting a dog or cat. Therefore, same-day relinquishments are not feasible. We, very often, are operating at capacity. 

If you have found a stray dog or cat:

  • Take the animal to a local vet clinic to have it scanned for a microchip.
  • Call all local vet clinics and provide a description of the found animal.
  • Call the Humane Society and issue a found report 875-7297(PAWS).
  • Place a found ad in the State Journal - the first three days are free.
  • Check with neighbors and put flyers up in the neighborhood where the animal(s) were found, as well as vet clinics, Humane Society and LIFE House for Animals.

If you are able to temporarily keep the found animal or if you are trying to find a home for a animal that you own:

  • You may provide us with as much information as possible regarding the pet as well as a photo of the pet(s) in need of placement. Please email the photo and information to Relinquish@lifehouse4animals.org. We will then forward the information to other rescues and animal lovers, it will also be looked at by our Intake Counselor, and we will try to find a home for the pet as we receive requests. Other options:
  •  Place an ad in the newspaper for the pet
  •  Make fliers and place them in local stores, businesses, and vet clinics
  •  Contact breed rescue organizations, if applicable (research on internet)

If you are unable to keep the animal for any length of time:

  •  Try to find a friend, neighbor or coworker who is willing to care for the animal.
  •  Board the animal at your expense.
  •  Take the animal to the Humane Society at 1041 Kentucky Avenue.

    NOTICE: LIFE House for Animals monitors its premises with video surveillance and holds the right to press charges if an animal is abandoned at the facility without following proper procedure.
