Rehome a Pet

Cat in woman's arms

There are alternatives to surrendering your pet to our shelter.

Here's a resource guide to help you keep your pet in your home and out of an animal shelter or to rehome your pet. We hope you’ll consider other solutions before making the decision to surrender your pet to The Animal Foundation. 

Rehoming Your Pet

Before bringing your pet to The Animal Foundation, download our Guide to Rehoming Your Pet and try to find your pet a new forever home.

Finding a new home for your pet will likely take time, patience and effort. However, it will be less stressful on the pet to stay out of the unfamiliar surroundings of the shelter, and you will be able to choose the new home.

This Animal Foundation Guide will walk you through these and more steps.
