Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue Surrender Inquiry

CHDR receives dozens of requests for help each week. We will respond within 1-3 business days (M-F) only if we have room to help. If the dog you surrendering was adopted from CHDR, you will receive a response from us within the time frame above.

We do require two pictures of the dog you are surrendering. We will not respond to inquiries without pictures sent to

This is only an inquiry and not a contract. If we are able to help or your dog was adopted through CHDR, you will be required to sign and submit a formal surrender form provided from our Surrender Coordinator.

I understand that there is a non-refundable fee for surrendering my dog that needs to be paid prior to surrendering. *
Is your dog being returned after previously being adopted from Coco's Heart Dog Rescue? If so, we will respond to the surrender request automatically. *
As a reminder, all dogs adopted from CHDR need to be surrendered back to our organization and follow our standard surrender process. This is outlined in our adoption agreement.
If yes, please provide the name/contact information. Many rescue organizations require dogs to be surrendered back to the original rescue organization if an adopter cannot keep them.
We will respond only if we have room.

I understand this inquiry is not releasing ownership of my dog to CHDR. If the surrender take places, I understand I will need to print, sign, and bring with a surrender form sent by CHDR. This form will legally release my ownership rights over to CHDR. *
This surrender inquiry is the first step. This is not considered a legal release form. CHDR will send the form when contacted.
