Hi all, I can't begin to tell you how much the Get Your Pet program means to me. Because of health problems I had to place my Sofie girl. Her adopter, Cayt, traveled 500 miles to meet her today. I have worked with dogs in one way or another for most of my life and I could not have found a better home...

I am impressed and very happy with this Get Your Pet website! We found an awesome family for our dog, Bella, to go to.

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.

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.

I have worked with dogs in one way or another for most of my life and I could not have found a better home for her. I cried when they left but I feel like I gained a new member of my extended family. Sofie is in the perfect home and Cayt is wonderful. I know they are going to have a ball together. It was love at first sight. Thank you for making this happen.
