Rehome

Rehome is great resource for pet owners who are looking to rehome their pets by allowing owners to list their pets online, screen applications of potential adopters, and finalize adoptions - all without having to bring your pet to an animal shelter!

This tool is great for pet owners who are able to keep their pets at home until they find their new fur-ever home. A few important things to keep in mind with regards to this program are:

  • You do not have to be a resident of our three cities in order to use this website
  • At the moment, only those pets who are fixed qualify for this program.

Although not required, a pet personality profile for the pet surrendered helps us in finding the right home for your pet. Please consider filling out a personality profile for your pet, and telling us all that you can about them, since you know your pet best.

Though we try our best to find a home or safe place for every animal in our care, we are not able to guarantee that every animal will be adopted or placed. Once a pet has been surrendered to our shelter, they may be placed in adoptions, transferred to a different shelter or rescue group, euthanized, or sent to a foster home.

We are not able to disclose the outcome of any animal once they have been surrendered to us.
