If you have to get rid of your pet for any reason, there are many options available. You can advertise in the local newspaper or on the radio. Most newspapers and radio stations offer free advertisements for pet giveaway. Local supermarkets have bulletin boards and allow pet owners to place flyers on these. Animal Control also has two bulletin boards. One is located inside the building and the other is located outside on the Southern wall.
If none of these resources work or if you must give your pet away immediately, you can do an owner impound at Animal Control for a $20 fee. If you do an owner impound please bring any shot records, vet records, and tags for your pet. These can greatly increase the chance of adoption for you pet.
