Rehome is an online self-rehoming service for individual dog and cat owners in the U.S. and Canada. Pet owners can go directly to rehome.adoptapet.com to get started, or can get started from a referral link.
Each pet owner adds their own pet for adoption to Rehome. To create their pet's profile, each pet owner creates a Rehome owner account using their email, phone, and their pet's information. They answer physical and behavior questions about their pet, and add pet photo to create their pet's online profile.
The pet profile is published on Adopt a Pet, where the pet can be seen by local adopters. Potential adopters can use Rehome's built-in adoption application to apply for and potentially meet and adopt the pet. Rehome provides tips and advice to guide the adopter and owner safely through speaking on the phone, meeting in person, and both parties agree, adopting the pet.
Rehome allows shelters and rescues to refer pet owners to Rehome using a unique referral link. Owners either pay Rehome a small listing fee per pet, or shelters and rescues can provide owners in-need with a code to waive the listing fee. Please contact us if you are interested in receiving a digital Rehome toolkit for your organization.
Listing their pet on Rehome protects an owner's privacy, and removes the shelter and rescue from any liability, responsibility, or effort outside of providing owners with the initial referral. The referring organization is invisible to the adopter and owner after the initial sign up process.
