Rehoming Your Pet

Rehoming your pet should be your LAST option. It is vital for the owner to take full responsibility of their pet, financially and otherwise.

Adopting an animal is a lifetime commitment, an unspoken agreement that the owner will do their best to love and protect their pet.

It is the owner’s duty to take responsibility for another life. However, sometimes, the sad truth is that the relationship between and owner and their pet has to be cut short. In cases where the owner can no longer take care of their beloved animal, PAWS is willing to help pet owners find a new home for their pet.

Are you rehoming your pet because they are sick and you can’t look after them?

Does your pet have behavior problems that you can’t deal with?

Did they have kittens or puppies that you didn’t want?

If these are your reasons for wanting to rehome your pet, let us help you address them first. PAWS can assist you with:

  • Low-cost veterinary care for your pet
  • Low-cost spay & neuter surgery

Spaying or neutering your pet may address some of their behavioral issues, plus it stops them from producing more unwanted litters.

This is not an instant solution to get rid of unwanted pets. We do not condone pet abandonment.

If your pet qualifies for rehoming assistance, they will not be held at the shelter while awaiting a new home. PAWS will only assist by advertising within our networks in order to find a suitable adopter.

We would like to stress that rehoming your pet should be your LAST OPTION.

Is my pet eligible for rehoming?

PAWS will only provide help in rehoming an animal if the owner has exhausted all other options and truly can no longer care for their pet, or if the animal is a stray that was saved by a rescuer. PAWS will also require the following guidelines in order to safely rehome your pet:

Must be spayed/neutered

All the animals we rehome are spayed or neutered. This eliminates the burden for potential adopters so they don’t need to deal with heat cycles, unwanted litters, and diseases that affect intact pets. Vet certification may be required for verification.

Must be vaccinated & healthy

Ensuring your pet’s health and happiness is the core of responsible pet ownership. Vaccinating your pet will ensure that they are in good health and they don’t spread diseases when taken into their new home. Please present their vaccination card for verification.

Must not be aggressive

It is also our responsibility to ensure the safety of potential adopters. Animals with aggression issues need to be rehabilitated at the owner’s expense to be eligible for our rehoming assistance program. Your pet will be assessed by our animal behavior specialist.
