RSPCA Victoria cares for many surrendered pets every year, rehoming them with owners that will love them as much as you wherever possible. RSPCA Victoria runs adoption services, so if you ultimately decide to surrender your pet, they will be in safe hands while a new home is found.
Other options to surrender
Giving up a family pet is never easy, but in some cases it’s the best option. Each circumstance is unique and there are many factors to consider before making the decision to surrender your pet. It can be hard to know if you’re doing the right thing, so RSPCA Victoria is here to help.
Take a look at the most common reasons people surrender their pets and advice on what to do if you’re struggling to find a way to stay together.
1. Talk to the whole family
It’s never going to be an easy conversation, but it’s good to talk to everyone in the house about surrendering your beloved pet. If you’re living the bachelor life, talk it through with someone you trust. If you don’t know who to talk to, call the RSPCA Victoria team for advice – sometimes problems can be solved with a conversation.
