This site is a godsend. I would have loved to have kept Shadow with me and my other dogs. But it turned out not to be possible. I was told multiple times to take her to a shelter. In looking for a rescue site I found Get Your Pet. And it worked out perfectly. Thanks ever so much!

Thank you for allowing me to use this precious site. It was just what I needed to feel safe about rehoming Nina.This website was phenomenal and saved my pet's life, as well as my own. The process was seamless and the criteria of the adopters was magnificent.  Lynn is the perfect mom for Nina and your website bringing us together have enriched both of their lives.

I am so grateful and so impressed with your site! The process was so easy and so thorough. I really felt like I had complete control and could choose the home where my dog Poppy would be totally cared for and loved. Thank you so much for giving us guardians a wonderful tool in rehoming our pets.

Why Get Your Pet?

The best way to save a beloved pet is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.

Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.

Local Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.

Pets go directly from one loving home to another. Pet adoption with less stress. Less chance of illness or death.

Everyone benefits with Get Your Pet.

Learn More

Guardians keep their pets out of the shelter. By rehoming a dog or cat, they can find them loving, new homes.

Shelters can focus limited resources on strays and abused animals. More available kennel space means fewer animals euthanized.
