I am grateful to have been able to use your site! It took a long time for Kit Kat to find a new home, but with patience I think most animals can find a new owner. Thank you for helping me find Kit Kat a loving family. I am so happy I didn’t have to use a local shelter.

We found a dog named Rose in Maryland about an hour away from us in Pennsylvania. We met her once and we were in love. She was the energetic and fun dog that we needed in our lives. After I took her home, she fit right in with us. We are lucky to have her in our lives! Our old dog Rogue had passed away. She was in our lives for over...

Yes, I adopted my darling 6-year-old dog Coco from your website within the last year, and I am so grateful to Get Your Pet. Coco’s previous owner and I continue to keep in touch every so often, mostly to reassure her that I am providing a loving forever home for him. All has worked out very well with the transition.

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.

We found a dog named Rose in Maryland about an hour away from us in Pennsylvania. We met her once and we were in love. She was the energetic and fun dog that we needed in our lives. After I took her home, she fit right in with us. We are lucky to have her in our lives! Our old dog Rogue had passed away. She was in our lives for over 13 years. I have always had a dog in my life since I was born and I always feel like a house without a dog has no joy. So, I began contacting shelters. Every shelter I contacted gave me a “NO” because I was a renter or because I did not have a fenced in yard. They did not care about my husband and I being the best dog parents you can find. I felt like they should have called our vet or friends and family to find out about how we spoil our dogs with the best healthcare and food and treats and love. After much frustration and some internet research, I found getyourpet.com. It was the answer to our prayers. If I were going to adopt again then I would definitely use getyourpet.com!

Coco’s previous owner and I continue to keep in touch every so often, mostly to reassure her that I am providing a loving forever home for him. All has worked out very well with the transition. The information your website provided about the available dogs and about achieving a successful adoption was extremely helpful in my choosing Coco, and also in his previous owner selecting me as the new owner. Thank you so much – I just love my new dog, and feel very happy that I was able to help out someone who was facing the sad dilemma of having to part with their sweet canine friend.
