Relinquishing ownership of a pet is a difficult decision. Anderson County Animal Care & Control officers are available to discuss owner relinquishment and to walk you through the process if the decision to sign over ownership is final. You must live in Anderson County in order to sign an animal over to ACACC. You must bring in a photo ID verifying your address. To assist ACACC with the cost of caring for your relinquished pet, there is a $20.00 per animal fee for relinquishment. A litter of animals will be subject to a $20.00 per litter surrender fee.
