You are your pets best hope for a new home
They are well respected, and 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.
The shelter setting, no matter how nice, can bring on stress-related problems. Anxiety, aggression, and even illness is common, and these natural reactions may make adoption difficult or impossible. If you decide that you do need to re-home 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 for both you and your pet. Our experts at Adopt-a-Pet.com, 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.
