Surrender a Pet

Pets are often surrendered to shelters because an owner feels they have no other choice or is unaware of resources that can help them keep their pet in their home. We may be able to assist you with alternatives to surrendering your beloved pet. Please call Prattville/Autauga Humane Society at (334) 358-2882 to discuss your concerns and receive the appropriate resources to help keep your pet with your family.
