The owner (or a representative of the owner such as an heir) may surrender a Tibetan Spaniel into TSCA Rescue’s care to ensure that the Tibbie will be placed in a loving home. Surrenders occur in hardship situations such as the owner’s permanent disability or death—not for convenience.



To discuss a surrender, please contact the Rescue Coordinator for guidance. The Rescue Coordinator will ask for information that will enable us to care for and re-home the Tibbie. Please be prepared to provide recent photos, veterinary records, and any other available documents (such as microchip registration, record of purchase, AKC registration).

To complete the surrender, the owner (or owner’s representative)

  • signs an agreement transferring ownership of the dog to the Trust
  • physically relinquishes the Tibbie to a designated TSCA Rescue volunteer

To ease the Tibbie’s transition, TSCA Rescue urges donation of the Tibbie’s belongings (such as medication, bed, toys, food, crate) at the time of relinquishment.

After surrender, contact with the Tibbie or its adopter is not permitted.

An owner may pre-arrange a surrender to TSCA Rescue to occur in the event of the owner’s death or permanent disability. Please contact the Rescue Coordinator to discuss pre-arrangement of surrender.
