The Owner Surrender Process
Surrendering your Sheltie can be a very difficult decision. If you find that you are unable to care for your Sheltie and feel that surrendering your dog is the only available option, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. The Intake Coordinator will call you and discuss the dog and circumstances with you. Please be honest with us. There is always a temptation to not tell the whole story so you do not appear in a bad light. Please understand that we cannot take dogs with a history of biting or with behaviour problems; unfortunately we do not have the resources to work with dogs with these problems.
Requirements For Surrendering a Sheltie
Alberta Sheltie Rescue requires owners that want to place their
Sheltie with us, to sign an owner surrender agreement.
With this agreement, the former owners agrees to
- Release full ownership of their dog to ASR, understanding that the dog becomes the property of Alberta Sheltie Rescue.
- Agrees that no legal liability will befall ASR, either by them or any previously unknown owners.
- Cannot attempt to reclaim the dog, but are welcome to contact ASR to see how the dog is doing.
- Required to grant /ASR/ the right to give the dog any medical treatment deemed necessary and to place the dog in an approved foster or adoptive home.
