Dog Rehoming Resources

Is your dog just not getting the importance of not peeing on the couch? Are your dog's behavioral issues hard to handle? Are they barking too much or is your puppy a handful? There are lots of reasons why you found Rehome, and we want to help. If you are still open to see a way to keep your dog, check out our resource guide.

If you are confidant finding a new home is the best option for you and your pet then you have found the right place. Rehome will do everything we can to find the right home for your dog.

Whether your dog is a puppy Pit Bull, loving Labrador Retriever or a mini Maltese you are welcome to find a new home on Rehome. If your dog has bitten anyone recently, we do ask that you monitor your pet and onboard your dog at least ten days after the incident.

Being honest and providing as much information about your dog is recommended. You should be clear about what you want for your dog, what your pet’s personality is and what your pet needs (be honest about special medical needs and behavioral issues). You want to find potential adopters that are right for your dog and ready to provide your pet with a home where they can be safe and loved. Start off by giving potential adopters all the detail they need to know about your pet so that they can determine if they are a good fit before taking steps to apply.

Tip: Posting photos and videos of your pet is essential in helping your dog get adopted. Show your dog with people, other dogs, and cats if they get along with them. See our photo and video tips section for more information.

Some dogs get adopted within a week or so once posted on Adopt-a-Pet.com, sometimes it can take longer. We have seen pets that have been inquired about but never adopted, and some pets that have never had an inquiry.

Trends we’ve found:

  • Dogs tend to have a high chance of adoption than cats
  • Younger dogs tend to get more inquiries than older dogs
  • The more detailed the profile, the better! Post good photos, videos, and stories to showcase a dog's personality!

A tip from us:

  • The sooner you can get your dog’s profile posted to our website, the more opportunity it is for us to spread the word about your pet by posting his/her profile on partner websites and in our daily ‘New Pet Alerts’ emails.
