It's heartbreaking, but sometimes people just can't keep their pet. Surrendering to the shelter is one good option and allows the animal to be adopted by someone else into a loving home.
But some people may be uncomfortable with that and want to know who is adopting their pet.
Rather than putting a "Free to Good Home" ad in the local paper or online site, we recommend using the Adopt-A-Pet and Petco rehome service.
It's free, easy to use and costs nothing. You simply:
- Create a pet profile to get your pet posted on the Rehome site to be seen by millions of visitors each month.
- Review applications -- The Rehome team will give you all the help you need to select the best potential adopters.
- Meet adopters -- The Rehome team guides you through the process of setting safe and pressure-free meetings with applicants.
- Finalize the adoption -- The Rehome team provides you with an adoption contract to protect the transfer of your pet ownership.
