“Sometimes asking for help is the best thing you can do.”

Making a decision to rehome your pet is emotionally difficult, but sometimes there is a mismatch between you and your pet or your living situation or health has changed and rehoming is the best thing for your pet so that they have an opportunity to thrive in a new and more compatible setting.

While The Animal Protectorates’ primarily focus on helping pets who have already been taken to a shelter, we do occasionally accept friendly pets directly from owners.  We are specific in the types of pets we will receive into our Friendsville Scholarship Pet program.  At this time, we do not accept aggressive pets or pets with extreme behavioral or extensive health issues.

Rehoming your pet through The Animal Protectorates definitely gives you more piece of mind than selling them on the internet or taking them to a shelter.  First, we get to know them and let them decompress and play with us.  Then, after we understand their personality, we seek out a matched family for them – always with the mindset of treating them like they are our own.  It doesn’t matter how long it takes to find the right family because they always have a home with us.

Another major advantage is that we actually vet the new owners including visiting their home and making sure any other pets in the home are friendly.  Finally, the new owners sign a contract to return the pet to us if they are not able to keep him/her because your pet gets the lifetime guarantee of a Purple Collar Promise once they come into our program – so you never have to worry about where they will go during their lifetime.

As a first step to surrendering your pet, we need a profile and photos. Please complete the form below to get started.

Once we receive your profile and determine that we can help your pet, a volunteer will contact you within 48 hours to discuss your profile and to let you know if we currently have space to take your pet.  If we do, we will ask you to come to the Center so that we can meet your pet and if the temperament test goes well, then we will have you complete an Owner Relinquishment Form.  Click here for a sample of the form.

(Prior to accepting a pet into the program, he/she must be current on Rabies, Bordetella and Distemper vaccinations and spayed or neutered or you must provide a $250 donation to cover the costs of us providing those requirements.  An additional donation of any amount is appreciated.)
