  • Low cost veterinary services

Re-homing is okay! If resources are not enough and you must find somewhere new for your pet, you will also find a comprehensive re-homing support plan below as well as a website that will help you safely find a new home for your pet.  Shelters and rescues are absolutely overwhelmed with animals right now.

Safe & Effective Re-Homing

Re-homing your pet is a very difficult decision, and sometimes it is absolutely necessary. Adopt a Pet is a free and safe option for anyone needing to find a new home for their dog or cat. 

How it works:

  1. ​Create a quick & easy profile for your pet. Make sure you have great photos available and be sure to write at least a paragraph detailing your pet's history and what they will need to succeed in a new home.

  2. Review applications from interested adopters.

  3. Meet potential adopters - virtual meetings are encouraged or distanced walks.

  4. Finalize the adoption with a contract & everything once a match has been made!
