Surrender a Pet

Puppy and Kitten

We understand the difficulties life can bring. You may be facing changes financially, medically, and with your living arrangements. If you find the need to surrender your pet because of these challenges, we hope we can help.

If you need to surrender your pet, please bring your pet to the intake building, (with the white picket fence), located on the Cedar Bend Humane Society campus, 1166 West Airline Hwy., Waterloo, IA.

  • Please provide applicable veterinary records if available.
  • Please fill out our pet personality profile. If your pet is placed up for adoption, this form will help us to find a home that best suits its needs.
