Surrender Form

Stray Love Found came to be thanks to the amazing teamwork between our founder Elaine Sellers, and her partners “We Love Satos” in Puerto Rico. That being said, our #1 priority is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home once abandoned “satos” or street dogs from Puerto Rico. However as we continue to grow, we attempt to assist local dogs in need when we have the foster placement. As a 100% all volunteer, foster based rescue, our ability to take on any dog (local or otherwise) is contingent on a willing and capable foster home. If you’d like to learn more about fostering, which saves lives, fill out a foster application or email

If the reason for considering surrender is financial, please email

Submitting a surrender form does not mean we can take on your specific case, but it will help us understand your dog, the situation, and if we have an available foster home for safe placement. First step is filling out the form below. Next, a team member will contact you for updated vet records, pictures, and to schedule a behavioral evaluation with our certified dog trainers. These steps are mandatory prior to SLF accepting your surrender. Though we do not charge a surrender fee at this time, our training partners charge a $45 evaluation fee.
