Rehoming Your Pet Safely

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.
