Relinquish a Cat
Relinquish or Surrender a Cat
We understand that giving up a pet is a difficult decision and that sometimes there is no other option.
This application will allow us to better assess the needs of your pet and ensure we have the resources to care for them. Please answer honestly, so we can provide the best service for you and the best care for your pet.
After reviewing this application, a medical exam will be scheduled. No intake is final until after our medical staff has conducted a physical exam of the pet for health and safety. All surrenders are dependent on shelter space availability and medical resources.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue does not require a fee to surrender an animal, but we do ask you to consider leaving a donation to support the continued care of your cat. The cost to care for and to re-home a pet can be quite substantial depending on the age and health of a pet. The average cost of care is $250-$300 per pet.
If you have any questions, please call us at 303-744-6076
