Resources for finding the best home for your pet

We understand how difficult it can be to come to the decision that you are no longer able to keep your beloved pet - whatever the reason, we are here to help you with resources to guide you through your rehoming journey. Surrendering a pet to Animal Allies means that you will be signing over ownership to us and our Adoption Center - entrusting us to find the right home for them. Sometimes folks aren’t quite comfortable with surrendering to our facility but still want to find a new home for their pet, and that's okay! Rehoming your pet while keeping them in your care is a great option because no one knows your pet better than you. Rehoming on your own also allows you the control to screen and interview potential adoption candidates. 

If this is an option you would like to explore, the first step is to try and network your pet through friends and family; this is a great way to get the word out through people you trust. Adopt-a-Pet is another great option! This website allows you to post your animal where hundreds of animal lovers can see them, learn more about them, and inquire if they are interested. Though people may have reservations about it, platforms like Facebook and Craigslist are also an option but may require more careful screening. When rehoming your pet, asking a reasonable rehoming fee can help to ensure serious inquiries as well. If you would like any help on navigating this rehoming process, please feel free to give us a call at 218-722-5341.
