Appointments are Required to Surrender a Dog or Cat

Owner Surrender

Making the decision to give up your pet can be very difficult. In many cases, we can help you come up with alternative solutions to help you keep your four-legged family member. We can offer advice, and, in some cases, assistance with behavior and/or medical issues. Call or stop by for more information. 541-997-4277

We are a limited intake, no-kill facility and only accept animals when space is made available through our current animals being adopted. There is a waiting list and this can take days, weeks, even months.
  • You must call or come to the shelter, to fill out an Intake Request form and a Pet Personality form. This does not guarantee your animal will be placed with us, but does put you in line for consideration.
  • An examination and/or behavior assessment may be conducted prior to your animal being granted intake. OCHS cannot take feral cats, or people-aggressive dogs.
  • We do charge surrender fees as follows:

Spayed/Neutered Cat: $25.00, not spayed or neutered: $50.00
Spayed/Neutered Dog: $50.00, not spayed or neutered $100.00
Litters with mom: $45.00 for the mother and $10.00 per kitten or puppy
Litters without mom: $45.00 minimum

Stray Intake

When you find a stray dog within the city limits, please contact the Florence Police Department at 541-997-3515 for pick up. For strays outside the city limits, please call the shelter and talk to staff about options. Not every loose dog is a stray. We keep a Lost and Found report. We may already know who the dog belongs to, and can help you reunite the dog with it’s owner.
Our cat areas are consistently full. There may not be space to take in a stray cat or kitten. Please call the shelter for space availability at 541-997-4277
