You know how you’re always seeing pets posted as “free to good home” on community sites like Craigslist and Nextdoor and you find yourself thinking that these vulnerable pets could easily end up in the wrong hands? We think about this too and want to help struggling pet owners find new homes for their best friends in a way that is safe and reliable, by directing them to Rehome instead.
We know that you care about pets’ safety as much as we do, and we want you to join us for this Rehome challenge. Here’s how you can help:
1. Head over to Facebook groups, Craigslist, NextDoor, or any other site you’ve seen with “free to a good home” posts.
2. Reply to the posts with a link to Rehome
3. You can copy and paste the following text:
If you need to find a new home for your pet, try Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com and the Petco Foundation — the safe, reliable, and free way to rehome!
This peer-to-peer service allows pet owners to post their pets on Adopt-a-Pet.com for millions of potential adopters to see. The site also provides you with the tools you need to choose the right new family for your pet.
That’s it, you’re done. Give yourself a pat on the back for helping keep pets safe.
