Surrendering Your Pet

Please read our surrender policy for more information

Surrendering Your Pet

The most common reasons why people surrender their pets include moving, financial hardships, allergies, and behavioral problems.


The Humane Society of Port Jervis / Deerpark exists to lend a helping hand when pet owners run out of options. We will house and care for the surrendered animals while working hard to find them a safe, stable and loving home.


Please read the important information below regarding how to surrender a pet.

The Process

 Please read our surrender policy first then contact the shelter to inquire about scheduling a time to surrender your pet. 

*Please note: there may be a waiting   list if we are full to capacity.


  • A surrender fee is required  

  • A valid State ID is required for all paperwork

  • Your pet's vet records
