Surrendering an Animal

If you are interested in surrendering an animal, you must make an appointment. Please call the HSMC Intake Line at (352) 873-7387 x207. You will be asked to leave a message with a description of the animal(s) and contact information; however, your call will be returned as soon as possible. Please understand that HSMC is not an open admission shelter and we reserve the right to refuse to take an animal under certain circumstances. As well please know that at any given time there is a queue ahead of you and we can only accept more animals upon adoption of others.

 

If you have found a stray animal, please contact Marion County Animal Control at (352) 671-8727. The Humane Society of Marion County cannot pick up stray animals and we are not equipped to deal with animal nuisances. If you have a feral cat colony in your neighborhood and would like help to humanely control the population, please call Sheltering Hands. This organization runs a trap-neuter-release program to help control the overpopulation of feral cats in our area. For more information, visit their website: www.ShelteringHands.org
