How Do I Find a Good Home for My Pomeranian?
To find a good home for your Pomeranian, you'll need to make sure that you understand what it is he needs from a new owner first. You can then look to people you know or use an online resource to find a good new home for your dog. Let's look at the things you'll want to consider when rehoming.
What Does Your Dog Require?
Even though someone might have had Pomeranians in the past, that doesn't mean that they'll always be the right owner for your dog. All dogs are unique and have personalities entirely their own. You know your dog well, and you have a better idea of the type of owner that would do well with him. You also know whether she has any special needs or has health problems. All of these are important factors you'll have to consider when you're choosing a new owner.
Friends and Relatives
During your search for a great new home for your Pomeranian, one of the first things you should do is think about people that you know. Do you have any relatives or friends that might be looking for a new dog? Do they have anyone in their friend circles that could be looking to adopt? One of the benefits of giving your dog to someone you know is that you already have an idea of whether they'll be a good match for her or not. It's easier to find the perfect home when you already know the new owner.
Online pet adoption sites like Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com are another way to find a good home for your Pomeranian. Rehome is a peer-to-peer platform that allows owners to post their pet's profile directly on Adopt-a-Pet.com for millions of potential adopters to see. It is easy to use, and it lets you create a profile for your dog with a bio, photos, and videos. The potential adopters can see all of this information and determine whether they might be a good fit. They can then fill out an application, which you'll review.
Remember to consider your dog's personality and needs when you're choosing a new owner for him. You'll appreciate that the platform is free for owners to use, and it only requires a small rehoming fee for those who adopt through the site. The money from the rehoming fee goes into helping other dogs get adopted.
Charging Rehoming Fees
If you're looking for a new owner online without using Rehome, which automatically charges rehoming fees, you'll want to make sure that you charge these fees to the new owner. The same is true if you're letting someone in your area that you don't know adopt him.
This is because you need to be sure that your dog goes to someone trustworthy and who wants to care for your dog. Some people are looking for free or cheap dogs that could be used as bait dogs for fighting or that could be sold to labs for a profit. Charging a rehoming fee means you shouldn't have to worry about these people since they don't want to pay for the animals they get.
