We know unforeseen situations arise (medical, jobs, moving, etc.) that can affect pet ownership. We do take in private surrenders of sugar gliders and hedgehogs, if we have the resources to do so. Please do not call or email about surrenders. We only accept surrender requests via our online form. Our priority is taking in animals who are at risk of euthanasia/death due to being in an animal shelter, or in a location where sugar gliders and hedgehogs are illegal to own. We are a small, private, donation driven rescue run by volunteers who house the rescue in our private home. The volume of animals in need varies, but typically summer is a VERY busy season. Due to the large volume of private party surrenders, our timeframe for accepting privately surrendered sugar gliders or hedgehogs could be several weeks to several months. If you feel that surrendering your pets to us is your best option, please complete our online Surrender Form. You will be added to our waiting list. If you have more than 4 animals that you wish to surrender, please complete our Special Situation Form.
PLEASE NOTE: If you adopted your hedgehog, or sugar gliders from Arizona Sugar Glider Rescue & Hedgehog Mafia, there will not be a waiting list! We are committed to each and every animal we adopted out and are often able to take them back quickly, if needed.
