Surrendering Your Pet To Misty Eyes

giving up your pet

There are often alternatives to surrendering your pet.  It is the goal of Misty Eyes to provide alternatives to surrender. If you think you may need to surrender your pet please contact Cherie Fox, Director of Animal Operations for helpful options.  


Please note: Misty Eyes requires a $50 owner surrender fee. This fee helps cover the cost of animal intake.  For more information please contact us at our Adoption Center at 317-858-8022.  Please leave a message, if we are closed and an Animal Care team member will contact you as soon as possible.


Not all animal shelters are no-kill. Before making a decision to surrender, be sure to research your options.
