Surrendering a pet is never an easy decision to make. The Metro Animal Care and Control Safety Net Program may be able to help you keep your pet.
Once you’ve decided that there are no other solutions, and have made the decision to find a new home for your pet, there are several options to consider.
1. Ask Your Network for Help
First; notify friends, relatives, neighbor and co-workers that you need to find a new home for your pet. This type of networking can have positive outcomes.
2. Rehoming Your Pet
As the pet’s owner, you have the best chance of finding your pet a new home. By making a determined effort and not surrendering to our shelter, you’ll also be creating a future for another animal by leaving a spot open at our shelter.
Ways to rehome your pet on your own
- Ask local veterinarians or pet related businesses if you can post signs in their clinics
- Use the Rehome website by AdoptAPet.com – this is an easy and free resource!
- Use social media to help spread the word
