Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only, including reuniting lost animals, surrendering a pet, wildlife rehabilitation, and more. Adoption visits are first-come, first-served. We recommend checking our current waitlist prior to your visit.

Rehoming Your Pet


This rehoming service is NOT intended for the sale of animals or purposely-bred litters. The goal of the rehoming service is for individual owners to find good, permanent homes for their animals, not to sell animals for a profit. You may, however, ask for a donation as a rehoming fee.

By posting an animal on this website, you are taking full responsibility for and ownership of the animal. You are also expected to represent your pet honestly.

Please note that the animals in these listings have not been assessed medically or behaviorally. If you are considering bringing a new pet into your home, we strongly encourage you to request vet records from the previous owner.

More Information

Including a photo of your animal is strongly encouraged since postings with photos often generate the most interest. Use the "Description" box to describe why you are rehoming your pet, notes about its personality and what the ideal new home for your pet would be. DCHS staff reserve the right to edit any postings for length or content. Your phone or email will be visible to the public.

After you submit your pet's information, your post will be reviewed. In general, approval takes 1-2 business days and it will then be active for 60 days. Should you need it reposted after that time, please submit it again and we will post it for another 60 days. When you have found a new home for your pet, please let us know so we can remove your post.

If you have any questions, comments, would like to extend a posting or have found a new home for your pet, please contact us at If you would like to speak with a Shelter Resource Counselor, please feel free to call us at (608)838-0413 ext. 100.
