Surrendering your dog is not
an easy decision

Chesapeake Bay Retriever Relief & Rescue will not place your pet in a shelter, but rather in a loving foster home best suited to his or her needs. Our fosters will provide food, love, and care for your pet as if they were their own until a forever home is found.

If you are thinking of listing your pet on Craigslist, classified ads, or Social Media, please reconsider.  These types of listings can place your pet’s safety at risk. Our rescue thoroughly interviews, checks references, and performs home visits on all of our prospective fosters and adopters to ensure our dogs are placed in the safest home possible.

Maybe you just need some guidance and someone to talk to about your dogs’ needs. We can talk through ideas that could help you to keep your dog in your home, with your family. Reach out to one of our rescuers in your region.

If you have decided to surrender is your best option, please fill out the following form. Please provide us with all of your pet’s records at the time of surrender. Donations of your pet’s crate, bedding, toys, and food are always helpful and will make the transition into a new home easier for your pet. Monetary donations are not required but are always appreciated.

Note: if you do not hear back from us within a day or two of submitting your surrender application, please let us know at [email protected]
