How Do I Find a Good Home for My Pit Bull?

Do you need to give up your dog and are wondering how do I find a good home for my pit bull? The best way to ensure he goes to a good home is by taking the time to rehome him yourself. This will take more work and effort than surrendering him to a shelter, but is well worth it. There are many resources and tools available online, such as Rehome, where you'll find expert advice, be able to set up a profile, and accept applications from potential adopters.

Things to Keep In Mind When Rehoming Your Dog

Remember that the point is to find the right home, not just any home. With that in mind, here are some important tips:

    Never List Your Dog Free to a Good Home:

    Charging a rehoming fee filters out people who look for free dogs to use in dog fights, sell to labs, and other activities that would not end well for your pit bull.

      Do a Home Visit:

      This may not be possible, but if you can see the home where the dog will live, it adds another layer of security for your pet and peace of mind for you.

        Partner with animal welfare professionals:

        Pet adoption experts, like those behind Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com can help you to find and screen potential adopters.

        Be Patient:

        Finding a good home for your pit bull might not happen overnight, but he deserves the time it takes to ensure he'll be safe, happy, and loved.

        It's not easy for pet owners who love their pets to give them up. If you've exhausted all options to keep your pit bull, taking the time to find them an excellent home is the next best thing.
