Thank you so much having this website. You saved me the heartache of having to put my dog Buffy in a shelter. I found a home for her with a family that I felt in my heart was perfect for her. They were in tears and just overjoyed to have her. That alone assured me that she's going to be alright. I can sleep tonight knowing I did the right thing. Thanks again!

We had to rehome our beloved dogs Leo and Jack, and our experience using this site was great. Both adopters were a perfect fit for each dog.

This has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Your site was a great help and fit our needs and what we felt worked best for our fur baby. I love the fact that Sydney never had to go to a shelter and that I got to decide who adopted her. After our meet, she was happy going home with her new family. I believe she is going to have the most fun...

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.”
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.
