Owner Surrender Application
CCHS at Rockwall Animal Adoption Center is a "no kill" facility - meaning that we will keep
the animal in our adoption program for the remainder of his/her life, unless (1) the dog
becomes ill and the vet recommends Euthanasia due to suffering that the vet is not able to
treat or (2) if the dog is deemed unadoptable for reasons of aggression. Due to the high
volume of animals at the facility, CCHS at RAAC only services animals in the city of
Rockwall and Heath. Any animals brought into the facility must be accompanied by a resident
of Rockwall or Heath with a valid drivers license or proof of local residency. If you do not
live in the areas we service, CCHS at RAAC will not be able to intake your animal due to the
rules governed by the city of Rockwall and Heath.
All microchip registration will be transferred to CCHS upon acceptance into the adoption program.
If the animal is not chipped, CCHS will microchip the animal with CCHS contact info. If the dog is
not current on Heart Worm prevention, Heart Worm test, FIV test, Spay/Neuter, and vaccinations,
these services will need to be completed upon intake to the CCHS at RAAC adoption program; therefore
any donations upon intake are greatly appreciated.
We encourage all animal owners to consider working with local rescue groups or networking with
family and friends prior to bringing the animal into the adoption center. You can click HERE for
a list of Rescue groups in the area who might be able to take your animal into a foster home.
Please note that communication with the rescue groups is best via email and should include all
of the information in the form below as well as picture of the animal in need. Rescue groups
are run by volunteers so your patience in the initial correspondence is greatly appreciated.
The other alternative to turning your animal into the shelter is to foster the animal until
he/she is adopted. While fostering the animal, CCHS at RAAC will provide food and crates as
well as routine medical care (i.e. spay/neuter, vaccinations, HW test or FIV testing and
microchipping). Click HERE
