How Do I Rehome My Husky?

If you need to rehome your husky, you will want to follow some basic guidelines to ensure that you are doing it right. After all, you want to be sure that you are choosing the right home for your dog, so they will be happy and cared for properly. Below are some of the most important things you can do when you are trying to rehome your husky.

Talk with Friends and Family First

You might be surprised when you talk with people you know about needing to rehome your dog. Some might be interested in adopting the dog from you. This could be a perfect solution, as long as those who want the dog have the means to take care of them. This goes beyond just being capable of financially caring for the dog. It also means ensuring that the dog is in a safe environment and that they have enough exercise.

The Rehoming Fee

If you are going to be rehoming the dog to someone that you do not know personally, you need to charge a rehoming fee. This is not so you can make money from giving away your pet. Instead, it is to ensure that only the right people are getting the husky.

It's unfortunate, but there are some people out there who have bad intentions toward animals. They look for people who are giving away free pets and then use them for fighting or other untoward purposes. By charging a rehoming fee of at least $50, and likely a bit more for a husky, you can reduce the risk to your pet.

Make Sure the Dog and New Owner Are a Good Fit

You always want to be sure that the new owner will work out well for your dog and vice versa. You need to be clear about any special needs that the dog might have, along with their quirks and their temperament. If the husky doesn't get along well with other pets or has had bad experiences around children, make it known. You want to be sure that your dog, along with the new owner and their family, is a good match.

Use Rehome for Find a Place for Your Husky

Rehoming on your own can be difficult. Adopt-a-Pet helps to make things much easier for you, thanks to their Rehome platform. This is a peer-to-peer system that helps to connect owners who need to rehome their husky with adopters. Owners will appreciate that it is free for them to use, and adopters will be happy to know that the cost for adoption is similar to what they would pay at a shelter.

Owners can upload information about their dog, including photos and videos. They can create a bio for their husky to let the adopters know more about the dog. This helps them to determine whether they will be a good match. The adoption application is meant to ensure that the dog goes to the home that will be the perfect fit. It's a perfect way to ensure that your dog is safe, loved, and cared for with a new owner.
