Our animals come to us in a variety of ways.  Sometimes when an animal is unclaimed with animal control, they are placed with us.  We also occasionally accept transfers from other shelters, and most commonly we get our animals through owner surrenders. 

We are not able to take in every animal we are contacted about.  We are a limited admission shelter and therefore adoptability and available space are ongoing considerations when we are accepting animals into our program.

When we consider whether or not we can take in a particular animal, we look at several factors including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Our current population

  • Age of animal to be surrendered

  • Any medical concerns

  • Spay/Neuter status

  • If animal is Up To Date on vaccines

  • Behavior issues

  • Bite history

  • Urgency of current situation

  • Reason for surrender

     If you wish to have your animal evaluated and considered for surrender to The Little Guild we urge you to review our FAQs section - and familiarize yourself with how our process works.  Once you have reviewed the FAQs if you think your animal might be an appropriate placement for our organization please feel free to fill out a surrender request.  All requests will receive a response within 48-hours to acknowledge the receipt of the information, and advise applicant whether or not their request can be considered.
