DCHS Partners with Program to Offer New Rehoming Service

SHARE:

DCHS partners with Home To Home™ to offer a rehoming service for pet guardians looking for permanent and temporary homes for their animals.

Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) has offered a rehoming service to pet parents looking for new homes for their families for several years.

Rehoming allows animals to stay in the comfort of their current home until they find their new families, thus never stepping foot into the shelter and leaving that space open for animals who don’t have an advocate. It also allows potential adopters to get information about the animal’s behavior in a home setting directly from someone who knows the pet.

Earlier this year, DCHS partnered with Home To Home™ to continue to provide rehoming services to pet parents as an alternative to surrendering animals to the shelter. In addition, the program allows pet parents to search for temporary foster homes for their animals, a benefit our previous service was unable to provide.

Home To Home™ is a free online pet placement platform pet parents can use to rehome or find short-term care for their pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals. It’s easy to use.

Pet parents looking to rehome their companion animal must create an account and provide a profile with a description and pictures of their pet. The profile is then listed and shared with individuals and families who are looking to adopt a pet. Pet guardians are able to chat directly with potential adopters through the program.

The program works similarly for pet guardians seeking foster care for their companion animals.

Home To Home™ does have some rules to its site, including no money is allowed to exchange hands.

If you’re contemplating surrendering your pet, for whatever reason, please consider rehoming them. To learn more about the process, click here.

If you’re looking to add a new pet to your family, but not finding one among the animals available at the shelter, check out the animals available through our rehoming page.
