Rehoming Your Pet
We understand that life has a way of throwing us curveballs that make it necessary to rehome a pet. If you are facing that difficult decision, we’re here to help. Our shelter stays full so it’s not always possible for us to take your pet into our care but we can offer some alternatives.
IT IS NEVER OK TO TO ABANDON YOUR ANIMAL. IT PUTS YOUR PET AT RISK AND IT’S ILLEGAL!
We will post information about your pet on our website. Interested parties will contact you directly – Charlie’s Angels will not answer inquiries or be involved with the adoption process. Please fill out our Rehoming Listing Request form to submit your pet’s details. If you are successful in finding a new home for your pet, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know so we can take your listing down.
- Seek out a solution through your network of friends and family first.
- A rehoming fee will encourage a more dedicated and serious adopter.
- Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions.
- Do you own or rent your home? If they rent, you’ll want to verify that pets are allowed and there are no weight or breed limitations.
- Are there other animals in the home? If there are, they should bring the animal for the “meet and greet”. If you schedule a meet and greet, do it in a public place and take a friend with you.
- Get the name of their veterinarian, then call to make sure it’s valid and that they have records of care.
- Give yourself a lot of time to find the right home.
- Trust your gut and your pet. If you go for a “meet and greet” and something just doesn’t feel right, or your pet acts in a way that is out of character for them, this may not be the right match.
Facebook, Instagram, and NextDoor are great outlets for posting about your pet when used with caution.
What Information Should You Share?
- Pet’s name
- Spay/neuter status
- House trained (dogs) or litter trained (cats).

- Do they get along with other dogs, cats, and children.
- Any health or behavioral issues.
