Surrendering a Pet to Wags & Whiskers

Surrendering a pet is never an easy decision and Wags & Whiskers recognizes there are situations in which rehoming an animal is necessary. As such, we are happy to help with owner surrenders where we can.


If the pet you are surrendering is a dog, our training team will be in touch to set up a temperament test to evaluate if the dog is a good fit for any of our foster homes. Please note that temperament tests take place in the Richfield/South Minneapolis area and you must be willing to meet us in the location of our choice
