Direct pet adoption, from one good home to another. Rehoming a dog or a cat keeps them out of shelters.
“Program innovations, like the match-making website developed by Get Your Pet, can be life savers for pets, owners and shelters.”
ASPCA President & CEO
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.

Thank you so much for connecting us with Deanna and for our adoption of Sis. Sis is a intelligent, beautiful and fun dog. Deanna did a great thing in saving Sis and giving her a new home with a loving family. That would be us. We love Sis so much.

I just wanted to thank you for this site. I had no idea what I was going to do with Sam as hard as it was to have to give him up. We have had him since he was a baby! Edwin seems to be the best thing that is going to happen to Sam. His family I know will give him all he needs. Love and attention. It was so easy to do and so quick! I would recommend this site to anyone looking at rehoming an animal!! Thank you again for everything.

Kai is a sweet little guy. He smiles all the time. I don’t think the transition has been hard on him at all. I am just in love with this little guy. We have a few issues to work through, but I think he will settle in with a little more time as well. Thank you for your website and helping me find this sweet little guy.
