Surrendering a Pet to ACCA

ACCA will take in pets from the public on a case by case basis. ACCA will not turn away a pet for a pre-existing medical condition, age or behavior problems provided that proper space and resources are available.  We have limited foster home space and operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. Once the ACCA “INTAKE AND RELEASE” contract has been completed it will be presented to the board of directors for approval. Applicant must present all documentation and a veterinary release for ACCA to contact. The pet will be put on the ACCA waiting list. Applicant will be contacted as soon as there is space available. Please note:  with the over abundance of unwanted pets this can take up to six months. ACCA does appreciate  a donation for all pets that are surrendered. The “INTAKE AND RELEASE” contract will be signed by both parties at the time of surrender.

Cats to be considered by ACCA must have all requirements fulfilled!
There will be no exceptions!

Our requirements are as follows:

  • We will not take a litter of kittens unless the mom cat has been spayed.  Proof of spay certificate must be provided to ACCA.
  • All cats must be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, have a current health check within the last three months, and documentation by a licensed veterinarian.
  • All cats need to have been tested for FIV/FeLUK.
  • INTAKE AND RELEASE contract required fields must be completed and all questions answered truthfully. 
  • Cat must not have any contagious disease, parasites, upper respiratory infection, or virus at the time of surrender.
