We understand that lives can change with the blink of an eye, and no one ever really wants to have to rehome their family pet, but it does happen. Please contact us to discuss options and recommendations for rehoming a pet.
The best situation for your pet would be if you can hold onto them until the next home is found. This is better for the pet and it allows rescues to keep spots open for dogs who are on limited time at local shelters.
When rehoming privately, make sure your dog is up to date on shots and spayed or neutered. This again is for the best interest of the pet. Please offer a rehoming fee, meet the intended adopters and complete a home check to ensure this will be a good fit.
**For resources on low cost spay/neuter and shots, please visit our Low Cost Medical page.
We can also courtesy post them on our page for additional exposure when the following information is provided:
Up to date on shots
Good with dogs
Good with kids
Good with cats
Contact name and number
If you are unable to keep your pet during the rehoming process, please contact us to verify availability in one of our foster homes. Realize that it may take a couple days to a couple weeks to have a foster home become available as we do not board our dogs.
We have an Owner Surrender form to complete that asks for as much history about the dog as possible and we do ask for copies of medical records on the dog as well. There is a REQUIRED $75 surrender fee to help cover some of the expenses to get your dog ready for adoption.
