Surrender Form

Stray Love Found’s #1 priority is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned dogs, often nicknamed “Satos,” from Puerto Rico. However, when our resources allow, we are always willing to offer assistance to our local dog community here in MA. We are an all-volunteer, foster based rescue organization; which means we do not have a shelter or singular location to house our rescues. SLF relies solely on compassionate, experienced volunteers who are willing to provide a dog with stable and compatible placement until a forever home is found. If you’d like to learn more about fostering, which literally saves lives, please fill out a foster application or email:

Submitting a surrender form does not mean we can take on your specific case; but it does give us additional information so we may begin networking your pup to the SLF foster network. Please be as thorough and as honest as possible when filling out this form. Once completed, a team member will contact you for updated vet records, and to schedule a behavioral evaluation with our certified dog trainer. Though SLF does not charge a surrendering fee at this time, there is a $60 evaluation fee for our partnering trainer’s professional, behavioral evaluation & assessment.

Is the dog microchipped?

Be specific; include how your dog greets, plays, and interacts with each one. Describe their energy level, mention if they willingly approach strangers, share their toys, interact well with children under 10, etc.
Please be descriptive, here! Think of 3 adjectives that best describe your dog in a positive, honest light. Include your dog's likes, their dislikes, normal energy level, favorite types of toys, favorite places to go, favorite treats etc.
Please include the specific times that your dog: wakes up, is fed, is taken on leashed walks, goes to bed, etc.
Do your best to name pet store, breeder, shelter, or means in which you acquired the dog.

Private lessons with a certified dog trainer, obedience classes, puppy school, etc. (excluding observation/eval sessions).
You know your dog best. What future lifestyle would help your dog thrive?

If Stray Love Found takes on your case, do you understand that complete care and ownership is completely up to Stray Love Found Inc and its members? You also understand the importance of completing this form truthfully, as all surrenders will see our trusted veterinary team, and undergo a behavioral assessment. If you wish to receive updates of your dog after surrender, you understand it is at our availability and discretion. *
