Please complete this surrender inquiry so we can determine if we have an accommodation at this time or anticipate one in the near future for the dog/cat needing surrendered.  Hope Animal Rescue of Iowa is solely foster-based which means we don't have a physical building.  We have to evaluate whether we have foster availability based on the animal in need and their needs before we can agree to take the dog/puppy/cat/kitten, as well as available foster home capacity based on those needs.  Once this form is submitted and reviewed some more detailed information may be requested as well as collaboration on ideas on how to retain your pet, as we know you do not take surrendering lightly nor do we.  

Pet Food Insecurities: ARL ;; or contact a food pantry in your area as some have pet food distribution too.

We cannot complete stray holds so please contact your local animal control and/or appropriate city contact for advisement in the area in which you found the stray. 

A Hope Animal Rescue of Iowa representative will reach out as soon as possible (on average less than 12 hours). Please note sending multiple forms or messages will not expedite anything, but potentially cause unnecessary additional interruptions to our teams work. We appreciate your patience.
