Surrender

Fees

** Animal Humane Society is a private, non-profit organization that does not receive government funding. We are also not affiliated with any national humane organizations.

The cost to care for and re-home pets can be in the hundreds of dollars for each animal that comes into our care. AHS asks for a surrender fee to help subsidize this cost. The fee is non-refundable and is not dependant on the outcome you choose for your pet after its evaluation.

  • Information about surrendering your pet to the Oahu SPCA.
  • You will need to fill out a form and pay a fee.
  • Pet profile forms and veterinary records are critical to our evaluation process. The more we know about your pet, the better we’re able to place him or her into a new home.
  • Please bring the appropriate completed form to your appointment.* A profile form is not required for ferrets, chinchillas, other small animals and birds.

Almost every civilized country in the world has adopted an electronic signature law. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) have established that electronic records and signatures carry the same weight and legal effect as traditional paper documents and handwritten signatures. A document or signature cannot be denied legal effect or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.

According to U.S. Federal law, an electronic signature is an ”electronic sound, symbol, or process, attached to or logically associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record.”

In other words, typing your name on this legally binding document is the same as signing it with a pen.
