Besides the passing of my parents, the hardest thing I've ever done in my life was re-home our dog Ace. We love Ace deeply, but my college age daughter moved back home and was allergic.  Ace also needed more space to roam & run.  Because of your website, we found the perfect match. They came today to visit and it was heartwarming to see the look on their...

Thank you for starting this community! I have been so apprehensive about giving up my dogs due to my heavy travel schedule, and your site made it as pleasant an experience as it could be. I know my dogs went to a home where they will be loved like I love them. I will recommend this site to anyone that needs to re-home their beloved pets.

Thank you for giving me my Roxy. My search for a small indoor companion started to seem hopeless. Rescue shelters were asking $450 - $750 and the list of requirements were outrageous, in some cases. I found getyourpet.com and at first there weren’t many pets available in my area but I thought I’d sign up anyway, just in case. A couple days went by and after...

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.

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.

I found getyourpet.com and at first there weren’t many pets available in my area but I thought I’d sign up anyway, just in case. A couple days went by and after another disappointing visit to a local shelter I got an email from getyourpet.com, “Check out this adorable pet,” it was Roxy…a Chinese Crest/Poodle mix. I checked out her profile and it was if she was meant for me and my family. I contacted the owner, set up a time to meet and 2 days later Roxy was in my arms. It’s been 4 months and she’s in my arms even as I write this. I can’t believe how perfectly this all worked out for me and my family but also for Roxy, it’s as if we both knew we needed each other…it feels like I’ve known her forever. I love her so much and I am overwhelmingly thankful to getyourpet.com.
