Where Can I Put a German Shepherd Up for Adoption?

Taking the first step towards putting your German Shepherd up for adoption can be confusing and emotional. When we add a companion to our lives, we don't expect to be put in a position to give them up, but sometimes pet owners are forced to make this tough decision. The good news is, there are many options to help you find your dog a good home. Below, we will be looking at some of the different methods and locations where you could put up your dog up for adoption.

Friends and Family

A natural choice may be to consider letting someone you know adopt your dog. You may find that you have a friend or a family member who is interested in giving your dog a new home. Since you already know them, it may be easier to judge whether they're capable of providing your dog with everything he needs for proper care. Your dog may already have a relationship with your friends or family, so the transition will also be easier for him and for you.

However, not everyone has people in their lives who have the capability and the resources to care for a German Shepherd.  

Specialized Rescues

In some cases, you might want to surrender your dog to a rescue that specializes in German Shepherds. These facilities have experience working with this breed, and will know how to care for your dog properly while he is in their care. Additionally, they can take care of finding someone to adopt the dog.

What You Should Beware of When Listing a Pet for Adoption 

The Internet has made many aspects of life much easier. However, it can also be dangerous. While it may be a simple matter to list your dog on classified sites online, there is no way to determine just who will respond and whether they will be a good and loving owner for your dog. Instead of choosing to use dangerous classified sites online, you should always look for trusted online methods, such as Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com.

Consider the Benefits of Rehome

Rehome is a peer-to-peer pet adoption platform that is free to use. It is a safe and reliable method for you to put your German Shepherd up for adoption rather than relinquishing the animal to a shelter or a rescue. Rehome will provide owners with the guidance and the tools needed to list their German Shepherd, add photos, and a bio, and more. You can even create application questions that are appropriate for your dog, and then see answers from potential adopters. This ensures that the best fit is found for your dog. You can also upload medical records that will be transferred to the person who adopts your dog. This service is free to the pet owner, and the adopter will only need to pay a small fee. The fee is similar to what shelters will typically charge. The service is simple to understand, and it is highly effective. It will allow you to find the perfect adopter for your German Shepherd, giving you peace of mind knowing that your pet will be going to a great home where they will be loved.
