If you cannot find a new home, your best bet is to surrender him to an animal 
rescue organization.  Lost paws is one that works locally, there are probably 
others.  As long as your reasons for giving up the animal are not "just don't 
want the pet anymore", they'll seriously consider taking him in and finding 
him a home.  Lost Paws have a website, and usually do adoptions on Sat. at 
the Orem PetSmart.
