Rehoming Your Miniature Schnauzer

If you are no longer able or willing to care for your Miniature Schnauzer, you should first contact the breeder from whom you purchased your pet. If the breeder is not able to help, please complete and submit our Pet Profile questionnaire. You may be asked to have the dog brought up-to-date on required vaccinations and/or groomed prior to surrender. We may need time to arrange for a foster home for your dog once it enters our rescue program. Unless it is an emergency, please be patient.

We strongly discourage surrendering your dog to a shelter. Miniature Schnauzers generally do not do well in a shelter environment. Their behavior is often mistaken as aggression and they will likely be euthanized. Please, don't risk your pet's life.
