Rehoming Assistance


Below, you will find two great resources for rehoming your pet. We urge you to use BOTH resources to increase the chance of finding your pet a new home, so he or she does not have to enter a shelter.

Believe it or not, you are your pet’s best option for finding a new home. Some people think shelters or rescue groups would be best for placing your pet because we have experience, facilities, screening guidelines, etc. However, an individual, particularly one who knows the animal, can focus all their efforts on that pet, provide the most information to prospective adopters, and best determine the appropriateness of a new home.

Also, shelters are extremely stressful for animals. The shelter setting, no matter how nice it is, can bring on stress-related problems. Anxiety, aggression, and even illness are common, and these natural reactions may make adoption difficult or impossible. If you decide that you do need to rehome your pet, we want to help YOU become your pet’s best advocate for finding a home.


Rehoming your pet should be easy and stress-free both for you and your pet. Our experts at, the largest non-profit pet adoption website, with support from The Petco Foundation, have created a simple, reliable, free program to help you place your pet from your loving home directly to another.


You do not have to surrender your pet! You can go to, the website for rehoming your dog or cat, without surrendering them to the shelter. Get your pet is an online community that directly connects people who need to give up a pet with people who want to adopt a pet. The process costs you nothing – Just publish your pets profile and thousands of potential adopters will see it.
