What Does it Cost?

For Guardians, as an introductory offer, Get Your Pet has waived its customary $10 fee. Rehoming your pet on Get Your Pet is free.

For Adopters, unlimited browsing of pet profiles is free. Unlimited, secure messaging with Guardians — free. Meet-ups — free.

The Adopter pays an adoption fee ($99 for a dog, $49 for a cat) only after they take possession of the pet from the Guardian. This is ½ to ⅓ of what a shelter or rescue usually charges. And a portion of the profits will go to benefit local shelters. See details of the adoption package below.
