Media Policy

Thank you for being a part of our Home To Home™ community. We are delighted you are actively participating in the program. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where pets needing new homes can stay out of the shelter and go directly into another home.

To ensure our goal is met, we have established a few rules we expect everyone to follow:

  • Please do not post any personal attacks or excessive and explicit criticism. This includes any language we may deem as shaming in nature.
  • Always be respectful and polite.
  • No negativity, threats or any form of language that would incite illegal activities or violence.
  • Do not post your personal information or the information of others.

Content on this site is monitored and will be removed. If the behavior continues the offender will be blocked.

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to helping community pets.
