Surrender / Rehome Your Pet

No matter how much you love your pet, sometimes it’s impossible for you to stay together.

If you need to surrender your pet, please contact us to learn about our process and how we can help him/her find a new home and loving family.

You can also facilitate the process on your own by using Rehome, where you can create an online profile and screen potential adopters while your pet remains in your care. 

Low-Cost Clinic

Founded in 2016 by Berkeley Humane to reduce animal overpopulation and maintain the health of our community’s dogs and cats, Spay the Bay offers:

  • Low-cost vaccinations on clinic days
  • Low-cost spay/neuter surgeries by appointment only

Please visit Spay the Bay for more information.

  • Dog: Crate training, fearful behavior, separation anxiety, destructive behavior

When your pet can no longer live with dignity and without pain, you may opt for euthanasia. By appointment only on Tuesday-Thursday between 8:00am and 3:00pm. The fee is $150.

We're here for our community's pets

Berkeley Humane believes that nobody should have to choose between feeding themselves and feeding their pet. Nobody should have to go without lifesaving vaccines for their pet. And every person and pet deserve a roof over their head – especially during the winter months. That’s why we’re doing this work every day. And that’s the change that you can make by donating now.

Your donation will go right back into the community, helping your neighbors to keep their families together.
