What is Home to Home™?
Home To Home™ is an interactive platform created to help families, people, and pets with the difficult task of transitioning pet ownership from one home to another. Oftentimes pets are taken to shelters when keeping a pet is no longer a possibility. Home To Home™ believes that pets should avoid a stay in an animal shelter and should instead be welcomed into loving homes.
How it works?
Pet parents create a brief pet profile that is published and shared with community members. People who are interested in fostering or adopting a new pet reach out to the owner directly.
Most people assume a shelter is the best place for a pet to go when their family can no longer care for their pet. In reality, although animal shelters have improved their care standards with great bedding, music, training and companionship, they cannot replace a home. Through our shelter partnerships pets are benefiting from the support of shelter professionals.
We established animal shelter partnerships throughout North America to facilitate Home To Home. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Our platform provides owners with the peace of mind of choosing a new home that is a good fit for their pet. It reduces stress on pets by eliminating shelter stays, and it leaves more shelter resources available to animals with no other options. In addition, Home To Home gives potential new owners a chance to learn more about the animals directly from the current owner. It is a win-win-win.
