Surrendering an Animal
We understand that the decision to surrender your donkey or mule is very difficult. We never judge anyone for needing to do so, life happens and we love being able to to be a safe landing for people and their long ears. If you have questions about the process of surrendering a donkey or mule to the rescue, please contact us via phone at (603) 762-2073, or e-mail us at SYALER@icloud.com and we would be happy to talk with you further. We also welcome people to come out and see the rescue before surrendering their animals. Our goal is to make the surrender process as easy as possible for both you and your animal.
We are also happy to work with you to try to figure out a way for you to keep your animal if that is the best option for all involved. We are happy to offer training and handling advice.
The first step in surrendering an animal is to fill out a surrender form and then contact us. Please know that information we ask you to supply us with is kept confidential and will only be used to make the best match possible with potential adopters, and to help your furry companions to have the smoothest transition possible. We do our best to make new residents comfortable.
We do not require a surrender fee but donations to go toward their care is always appreciated and welcomed.
If the animal(s) you're surrendering are coming from inside the state of New Hampshire, they will need to be up to date on their core vaccines and Flu/Rhino. These should be done at minimum two weeks before they're coming to the rescue.
If your animal(s) will be traveling from outside the state of NH to come to us we will also need two different papers for each animal, negative Coggins papers, and a CVI (certificate of veterinary inspection.) In addition to the core vaccines listed above. If you are surrendering due to financial crisis, please let us know and we may be able to help with the cost of the vet work.
When filling out the surrender forum please give as much information as possible on what your equine has been eating, any habits they have, or any little quirks. This will help us make them as comfortable as possible with their transition to the rescue.
