Rehoming Your Pet

Domestic Animal Services (DAS) only accepts animals owned by Collier County residents.  Our goal is to help you keep your pet in your home by providing you with options and alternatives to surrendering your pet.  We encourage you to contact friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, Humane Society Naples, local rescue organizations and try social media networking, to try to re-home your pet.  We also suggest that you try posting your pet on, since no one will be able to find a better match for your pet than you.

Pets owned by Collier County residents may be surrendered for a $25.00 owner surrender fee, per pet, for dogs, cats and rabbits.  Please bring any relevant vaccination records and medical documents with you at the time of surrender; if your pet is not currently vaccinated or you fail to provide your pet's records, there will be additional fees for vaccinations.  DAS accepts approximately 5,000 animals each year and cannot guarantee that your animal will be adopted.  DAS is unable to accept animals for adoptions that are aggressive, have unprovoked bite histories or are medically unfit for adoptions; if there is no alternative to surrender, these animals would only be accepted as surrender for Humane Euthanasia – please reference “End of Life Services” for more information about this service.

DAS only accepts surrendered animals between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, by appointment only.  Appointments are typically scheduled one to two weeks in advance.  This allows DAS to plan for incoming animals and allows us to provide the best possible care, without becoming overcrowded.  Overcrowding in animal shelters is the number one cause of illness and spread of disease, by preventing overcrowding, we are able to reduce illness in the shelter and get animals adopted even quicker. 

To discuss other possible options or to schedule an appointment for surrender, please contact DAS at 239-252-7387 and ask to speak with our Admissions Coordinator.  If they are unavailable at the moment, they may be helping another customer, please leave them a message and they will call you back as soon as possible.
