  • Facebook Rehome Groups
    Rehoming a pet straight from your home to another home is always the best option for the pet whether this pet is your own personal pet or a pet you found . This prevents the pet from ever having to enter the shelter system, an experience that can be stressful to the pet and increase the risk of disease transmission. We’d first recommend reaching out to family and friends to see if anybody can take over the pets care, or to post clear photos/videos of them on Facebook in one of the groups listed below. These groups are filled with animal rescues, fosters, and potential adopters looking to add a new pet to their family. Any information you can provide about their character or behaviors (good with dogs, cats, kids, house trained) is important to share as well! These are the best options for this pet because they keep him or her out of the shelter setting, guarantee a live outcome, and limit the risk of them picking up diseases.
