Surrender and Redemption Fees


Putnam County Animal Control does accept dogs or cats that are surrendered by their owners. Please keep in mind that this is NOT a no-kill shelter. Animals that were previously pets often have the hardest time adjusting to life at an animal shelter and are at the highest risk of euthanasia when the shelter becomes too full to take in any other animals. We ask that all other means of placement be considered before surrendering your pet, including such resources as the local animal rescue organizations. A list of these organizations can be provided to you by the Staff at Putnam County Animal Control upon request.

    Dogs or Cats:

  • Male----$55

  • Female --$65

The shelter accepts cash or check only, no credit or debit cards accepted


Redemption (reclaiming) fees can vary greatly from animal to animal depending on several factors, including but not limited to: length of time in the shelter, status of vaccinations, number of times previously redeemed, and sterilization status. Please call the Putnam County Animal Control Main Shelter at 386-329-0396 for information on the cost to redeem a specific animal.

The Putnam County Animal Control's dedicated staff works tirelessly to ensure the safety and welfare of all the animals in our charge. Through your generosity, we can continue to improve and make strides toward our goal of becoming an euthanasia free facility. With your monetary support, you are enabling us to keep adoption fees low (only $10 if the animal is already sterile!), helping supply needed vaccinations, micro-chipping, and vet care that may not have been accessible to the animal prior to coming into our care. Donations of food, litter, and treats (no rawhide please) are always welcome. For a full list of items, click the "Our Wishlist" link below.
