Relinquishing Your Pet

If you are no longer able to care for your pet, they may be relinquished to the ACF where legal ownership will be transferred to PAWS of Coronado.


Relinquishing Process
Appointments are required to relinquish your pet and can be made by calling the ACF at (619) 522-7371. Staff will verify your eligibility and provide you with a relinquishment questionnaire. Bring the completed questionnaire, any medical/
immunization records you have for the pet, and a $20 relinquishment fee per animal to your appointment.


Program Restrictions
Pets may only be relinquished to the ACF if their owners are Coronado residents who can provide valid ID and proof of address. Exceptions to the residency rules can only be made for animals who were previously adopted through PAWS of Coronado.
