Owner Surrender


We understand that sometimes situations arise in which you are no longer able to care for you companion animal. LCHS will work with you to the best of our ability to ensure your pet has the best chance possible of finding a forever home.

There are a few things you can do to help this process:

Surrendering your pet to LCHS

Owners who wish to surrender their pet to the Lee County Humane Society should call the shelter first. This will allow us time to prepare for the arrival of your pet. When you come to the shelter you will be required to:

  • Provide veterinarian records
  • Complete a pet information form- remember the more information we have about your pet the better opportunity we can give them for finding a forever home
  • Proof of residence in Auburn or Opelika (power or water bill is acceptable)
The best way to control the population of companion animals in our community is to spay and neuter your pets. Looking for a low-cost spay and neuter facility?
