Surrender your dog, or
a dog you found
If you have a dog or found a dog that you want to find a safe place for, then we may be able to help.
Space at our shelter is very limited due to financial limitations, so please be aware we may not always be able to help.
Our procedures for surrender;
FIRSTLY: Send photos and any information about the dog by whatsapp to +96569983197. We will answer fast if it is possible to surrender to us or not.
We have two options when it comes to surrendering dogs;
1. If a space is available in our shelter, we will accept the dog and ask that you help with a one-time donation / surrender fee to help us cover some of the cost for this pet going forward (such as food, board, rent, staff, medication, etc.). The minimum donation is 100 KD.
2. To guarantee a space for your dog in our shelter, we also offer a boarding option, where you help cover the costs of the dog on an on-going basis. This option is also limited so please contact us for more information and pricing.
Why do we charge a Surrender fee? or Boarding fee?
Well firstly to explain, we are the largest dog shelter in Kuwait running proudly since 2014 having saved thousands of dogs. When you surrender your dog to us, we are taking full responsibility for that dogs life, which means we will provide accommodation at our shelter where they will be fed, cleaned and looked after, including any vaccinations, deworming, anti-parasite treatment, microchipping and medical treatment when needed. We will also actively work to get the dog adopted into a new loving home in order to have a fresh start at life.
Of course to provide this dog sheltering service costs a lot of money, and although we are a charity and a non-profit organisation, we still have bills to pay including rent, staff salaries, food, medicine, the bills are really endless... and sadly no one gives us anything for free.
Therefore the only way to keep running our charity work and to take over the full responsibility of this dog from you is to charge a minimal surrender fee or to receive support while your dog is with us.
The surrender fee is really the minimum amount we ask for in exchange for this service and a higher donation is always encouraged and welcome, as the fee normally does not match the cost of looking after your dog and the money we invest in taking care of them and the effort to find them a new loving home.
PLEASE NOTE: To surrender a dog we require a signed surrender agreement, filled from the owner of the dog or person who found the dog, along with a copy of your Civil ID card.
❗️After a dog is surrendered the ownership will be with the shelter not with pre-owner anymore. We invest lots of work and efforts to find new loving homes. Therefor surrendered dogs are not available to be returned once surrendered, for boarding however, you can take the dog back if you wish.❗️
If you adopted a dog from us, and you want to return that dog to the shelter, and the 1 month dog exchange or returning time is over (date on adoption form), you need to pay the same surrender fee as mention.
