Re-home a Dog

Rehome a Pet through & The Petco Foundation

How It Works

1. Create a pet profile in minutes and manage it in your dashboard. Use your dashboard to:

  • Edit and add to your pet profile

  • Review adopter applications

  • Respond to adopter questions

  • Upload pet records

  • Submit adoption paperwork

  • Browse resources and FAQs

  • Pro Tip: Adding a video to your pet profile can increase views by 40%.

2. Review Applications. Finding a new home for your pet can feel like a big decision. Adopt-A-Pet will make sure you’re not alone.

  • We’ll notify you when you have a new application to review.
  • If you aren’t 100% confident in your ability to choosing the right adopter, we have question-by-question screening guidance right on the application page, so you can see which answers are great, which are not-so-great, and which ones might require follow-up questions.
  • Screening guidance is included with each application to help you to screen adopters.

3. Meet Adopters. After you screen the application, it’s time to meet the adopter! Adopt-A-Pet will give you all the tips you need for conducting a safe and effective meeting.

 Find helpful meet and greet FAQs located in the ‘Resources’ tab on your dashboard.

4. Finalize Adoption. Adopt-A-Pet gives you a personalized adoption agreement that you and your adopter can sign online.

  • You’ll even be able to specify what you want to happen if the adoption doesn’t work out (rest assured, most adoptions are successful): if you want the pet returned to you or you want the adopter to find a new home for the pet.

  • Your adopter will be able to download any medical or microchip records you supply

  • Finally, the adopter can submit their adoption fee online, which we’ll pass along to the rescue or shelter of your choice.
