I am so happy I found Get Your Pet.  Radar, now Sophie, my newly adopted dog, is a sweet beagle that stole my heart. I visited many shelters and rescues before adopting her. All the dogs at the shelter were big, and the rescues all had a long drawn out process.  Sophie has already had her checkup and all that goes with it.  I still keep in touch with her...

We are so happy we adopted Mellow!  His new name is Tucker and he is fitting in perfect with his dog brothers.  Thank you getyourpet.com for your great service.  It was such an easy process and an awesome experience for us, Tucker and his other family.

This process was so easy and I'm so happy with the new homes found for my dogs, Tobby and Lucy. I will miss them a lot but I know they will be loved and nurtured in their new home.

What we do

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

"This is the future of pet adoption."
Vincent Medley Executive Director, ACCT Philly
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.
