For Pet Owners

Rehoming your pet

Home To Home™ was created to help families, people, and pets with the difficult task of transitioning pet ownership from one home to another. We are here to help and have enlisted animal shelters throughout the country to help as well. 

The platform works by allowing an individual to post a profile with pictures of their pet which is then listed and shared with individuals and families who are interested in adopting a pet. Our mission is to keep animals out of shelters and instead have them rehomed with loving families.

The steps

  • In order to get the highest level of exposure for your pet, you should first select a participating shelter near you. If you can’t find a participating shelter near you, no worries, you can still continue the rehoming process.
  • Next, you’ll complete a pet profile and upload pictures of your pet. 
  • Once approved, your pet profile will be published and shared throughout our network. 
  • If someone is interested in your pet, you’ll receive an email directly from them that you can respond to privately.
  • Your pet profile will be published for thirty days and automatically removed. If your pet finds a new home, you can remove the pet listing by going to your profile.

Adopting a pet

Home To Home™ believes in keeping animals out of shelter cages and in loving homes. If you are looking to adopt a pet, start by searching pets available in our network. You can preview available pets based on your location among other search criteria. When you find a pet that interests you, click the profile to get more information and reach out to that pet’s parent directly. If all parties agree on a good fit, then the transition is completed on the parties agreed terms. No money should ever exchange hands. See our FAQ section for tips

Most pet owners assume a shelter is the best place for a pet to go when their family can no longer care for their pet. In reality, shelters cannot replace a loving home. Through our shelter partnerships pets are benefiting from the support of shelter professionals and avoiding any shelter time.

Start the process to become a shelter partner with Home To Home™ and support our mission of helping families, people, and pets with the difficult task of transitioning pet ownership from one home to another and out of shelter cages.
