There are many options available to families that are looking to find a new home for their pet.
The following are a few simple tips to try and re-home your pet before bringing it to a shelter:
Rescue groups that focus on caring for and helping families re-home a specific breed are available for almost any type of dog. Organized by people who have extensive knowledge of a specific breed, these groups provide a variety of opportunities for your pet, including the possibility of your pet staying in foster care until a new home is found.
In the event these alternative resources don’t address the circumstances you are experiencing with your pet, please review how to surrender your pet to Animal Humane Society. We are an open-admission animal welfare organization and will accept any animal for any reason.
