Home to Home provides a new conversation around the issue of pet surrender that is positive and supportive, plus it’s easy to use.


The service is free with one basic rule: no money can exchange hands. Rehoming fees don’t lead to better outcomes for pets, but quality communications will.

Need to rehome your pet?

It’s simple! In order to get the best local exposure for your pet, you should first select a participating shelter near you. Next, you’ll complete a pet profile and upload pictures of your pet. Once approved, your pet profile will be published on your local shelter’s Home to Home website and promoted on their Facebook page. If someone is interested in your pet, you’ll receive an email from them that you can respond to privately.

Looking for a pet?

From the main Home to Home website (that’s the site you’re on right now) you can search all pets available across our entire shelter network. You can preview the available pets based on your search criteria, and when you see a pet that interests you and you want to view his or her complete profile, you will be redirected to the sponsor shelter’s Home to Home page for that particular animal.

For Shelters

This site was created, by Panhandle Animal Shelter to help shelters provide a positive option for people who can no longer care for their pet. When we launched the program, we immediately experienced a decrease in owner surrenders, averaging a 31% decrease compared to the prior year. We wanted to share this success with other shelters in an effort to save more lives. The site is free to shelters and rescues because of generous grant funding. Your shelter can have its own Home to Home website in no time. Fill our our simple form and you’ll be on your way to helping your community find homes for pets without the need for shelter surrenders.
