How do I rehome my pet?
How to rehome your pet responsibly and humanely

Do dogs feel abandoned when rehomed?
How does a dog react to a new owner? In general, re-homing is a very stressful experience for dogs. It’s common for dogs to undergo bouts of depression and anxiety, especially if they’re coming from a happy home. They will miss their old owner and may not want to do much at all in their sadness over leaving.
Is it cruel to rehome a dog?
More seriously, you might have a truly aggressive and dangerous dog in your home. Rehoming a dog with a history of significant aggression is a liability and shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s hazardous for rescue and shelter workers, volunteers, and fosters – let alone the potential next owner.
Is it OK to give a dog away?
Unfortunately, not all dog owners act responsibly, abandoning their dogs when they become inconvenient. In addition, it’s illegal to abandon your dog in most areas under animal cruelty laws. It’s not fair to just get rid of your dog. It is your responsibility to make sure your dog is cared for properly.
What do you do when you can’t cope with your dog?
If you want to give up your dog, there are a couple of options you could try:
- Contact a dog rehoming centre. You could try one of the national charities such as Blue Cross, Dogs Trust, the RSPCA, SSPCA or USPCA, or a local rescue organisation.
- Contact a breed rescue organisation.
Can I get my dog back after rehoming?
A person who gave away his/her animal can certainly make a request to get the animal back and can offer to pay for the animal.
Where to take my dog if I can’t keep him?
Surrendering your pet to a pound, shelter or rescue group If you are able, offer to keep the pet at your home while the rescue group helps you find a new home. Make sure you understand the difference between surrendering your pet to a rescue group, shelter and pound.
Can I leave my dog home alone for 2 days?
Your dog will be just fine staying in your home while you’re gone. Depending on how much of the two days you will spend away from home, you can ask a friend, neighbor or family member to stop in once or twice to check on your dog and provide some loving company.
Can I let my dog roam free in the house?
Having your dog inside and roaming free—or even confined to one or two rooms—means they are protected from the elements, possible predators, and are less likely to escape. They will spend much of their time sleeping, so it tends to be better for less active dogs, or you’ll need to make it up to them when you return.
Can I surrender my dog to PetSmart?
Can You Surrender Animals To PetSmart? There are a variety of reasons that a pet might need to be rehomed or surrendered, but unfortunately, owners cannot take their animals to PetSmart to be surrendered. PetSmart does not accept pets for rehoming, even if the animal has been adopted from a PetSmart location.
Will Petco take unwanted pets?
