If you are in a situation where you can no longer keep your pet, you can surrender your animal to us.

Surrendering your cat or dog to the Albury Animal Care Centre (AACC) means that you are giving up the ownership of your animal to us. This service is available for a fee.

If you decide to surrender your animal to the Albury Animal Care Centre, please understand the following:

  • Animals are accepted by AACC at our discretion and subject to capacity.
  • You must sign a form stating that you are the owner of the animal and that you’re surrendering them to the council and proof of ownership. Please provide all medical history and veterinary paperwork, including vaccination history and any medication requirements.
  • If you are wishing to rehouse your animal, please check with your local animal welfare agencies/rescue also.
  • Ask friends and family

Note: There is no guarantee that surrendered animals will be rehomed. Animals that cannot be rehomed may be euthanised, please explore all other options before surrendering.
