Wishbone Pet Rescue manages the Allegan County Animal Shelter. If you are an Allegan County resident, you can surrender your animal to the Animal Shelter with a prearranged appointment.
Wishbone knows how heartbreaking it is to surrender a loved animal. Wishbone staff take in every animal as it is our own pet. Staff will then make every effort to place your animal in the best forever home. Wishbone has a very comprehensive adoption process which requires an application process with multiple levels of checking to ensure the safety in placement of your surrendered pet. Our policy is “we place for best fit not first come first serve.”
While your surrendered pet is waiting for their forever home, they will receive lots of love, compassion, temperament assessment, behavioral support, enrichments, daily walks, medical care far above most county animal shelters, and the commitment from Wishbone to make sure they thrive while in our care.
There is a county surrender fee, which is used by Wishbone to pay for this premium care, feeding, medical vaccines, parasite control, micro-chip and if necessary spay/neuter services until the pet is adopted.
Surrenders MUST be scheduled ahead of time through the front office (269-686-5112 Ext 0) so that we can ensure proper kenneling available and time to process the animal immediately into our facility.
Please bring any previous veterinary records. If your dog is on a special diet, please provide some of the dog’s food if possible and name of food needed.
Wishbone’s goal is to make the intake process as quick as possible, along with receiving as much information possible to place the animal. There will be forms to complete about your pet, which will help us in adoption.
