Diamond, now known as Brandy, is doing great. Been almost a week, and already she has won our hearts. Our other pitbull (Lady) and her are getting along well. They love to play with each other outside. We are very happy to have been able to welcome Brandy into our home.

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.

My wife and I have just sent our son off to college and were looking for a dog to adopt. Stumbled upon your website, browsed available pets, and found (2) dogs we wanted. We met up with Lori and Peter in Ohio and met with Molly & Parker (they had both dogs listed that they did not want to split apart) and we could not be happier with the way things transpired from there. The entire process was seamless !!! We have since taken possession of both dogs and I am confident they are loving their new home as much as we are enjoying loving on them. Again, thank you so much for what you are doing for the community, and keep up the good work.
