Unfortunately, situations occur where you are unable to keep a dog you adopted or need to relinquish your dog whom you acquired elsewhere. We will always take back a dog you adopted from DCCR. Please contact us as soon as you know you need to relinquish so we can make the proper arrangements. You must bring the dog to an adoption event and MUST contact us prior to that so we know you are coming. If you have a dog not from DCCR whom you would like to relinquish, you must contact us so we can evaluate the dog and situation before we will accept the dog into the rescue.
