Thank you so much for helping me find Merle (formerly Buddy)! He is the sweetest baby. He is very happy in his new home, and we love him very much! Not only was the adoption price affordable it also came with all the benefits. This was a very easy process and now our family is complete!

Just a quick shout out!! I’m SO thankful for this service. Eloise has a new home. It was a win for all people and animals involved and was also easy, convenient, and organized in a way that prompted efficiency. This was a difficult thing made easy by your work and I’m thankful for everyone involved!

I found the very best parents for Estrellita. I am crying but I know it was the best, given my new roommate who has a doggie also. Estrellita’s new parents will be wonderful for her and she for them. Thank you for all you did for me!

What we do

Direct pet adoption, from one good home to another. Rehoming a dog or a cat keeps them out of shelters.

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.

Everyone benefits with Get Your Pet.
