Rehoming Your Pet with TCHS

Rehoming Your Pet with TCHS

Rehoming your pet can be an emotional and challenging experience. We're here to help! Prior to scheduling an intake appointment with us, we'd love to have a conversation with you to see if there are potential alternatives/resources that may help you keep your pet in your home. However, we do understand that there are situations where rehoming is essential. Once we've explored other options, we will schedule an appointment with you to bring your pet to the shelter. At the time of your appointment, we will gather as much information as possible to ensure the best outcome for your pet.

Please call us at (320)252-0896 to begin this process with us.

Rehoming Your Pet Yourself

Adoptapet.com and Getyourpet.com are apps that give owners another outlet for rehoming without using an intermediary like a shelter.  They gives pet owners the tools to find the perfect new home for their pet themselves. This humane option minimizes stress on pets by keeping them in their current homes until new ones can be found.

How it works: Both apps walk you through creating your pet’s profile, safely meeting interested parties and finalizing the adoption. Potential adopters can see your pet’s profile online and contact you to arrange a meeting to get to know your pet. You can then complete the adoption and legally transfer ownership. Among the benefits to programs like these are:

  • It's a safe, no-cost way to rehome a pet and a much safer alternative than posting to online classifieds (please don't do that);
  • The adoption fee can go directly to Tri-County Humane Society or any other shelter, if you choose, to benefit other homeless animals in the area;
  • It gives pet owners the ability to hand-select their pet’s new home.

Relinquishing an animal can be a tough and heartbreaking experience. It also can be a gift of unconditional love to a new family. Regardless of what route a pet owner takes, we're here to help every step of the way.
