What Is The Fastest Way To Rehome A Dog?

The fastest way to rehome a dog is to surrender him to a shelter—but that's not necessarily the best way. While shelters do their best to help the animals in their care, some cannot find homes for every pet. That means some dogs become long-term residents of the shelter or in the worst cases, are put down rather than rehomed. Along with asking what is the fastest way to rehome your pet, a good question to ask is what's the best way for you to do it.

Giving Your Dog The Best Chance At A Happy Home 

It can be a heart-wrenching decision to give up your pet. If you find that you have no other option, give your dog the best chance at a new life—and give yourself peace of mind—by making sure he goes to an excellent home.

If you can find a reputable, no-kill, private rescue that will take him, that can be a good choice. The problem is that many such rescues are at capacity, so finding one with an open spot can be a challenge. 

Another option is to rehome your dog yourself. Depending on the type and age of your pet, this can be super fast or can take some time, but it is an option that ensures your dog will be safe and happy.

Resources are available to help you in the process of finding the perfect home. Rehome was designed to help pet owners in your position and they provide lots of tools including the ability to create a custom pet profile, tips on screening adopters, and much more.

You'll also find resources to help you keep your pet if you're still not 100% sure about rehoming him. 

If you must rehome your pet, do it in a way that will allow him to have the happy, healthy life he deserves. Knowing you did what was best for him will be well worth the time and effort.
