We're On a Mission To Support And Empower People To Responsibly Rehome Their Pets 

Who we are, and why we created PetRehomer

PetRehomer has been set up by a group of animal lovers who are committed to ending pet homelessness and irresponsible rehoming practices. We're part of a registered UK charity so you can rest assured that we always prioritise pet welfare over profit.

  • 3.4 million

    pets from UK homes have been given up in the past year according to the PFMA (Pet Food Manufacturers Association).

  • Lifestyle changes

    both in living and work arrangements, plus financial obstacles are cited as the most common reasons for giving up a pet. Whatever your reasons, we are here for you.

  • PetRehomer is here to help

    by creating a pet adoption community where people who want to adopt safely connect with people who need to rehome a dog, cat or rabbit.

What We Do

We're a safer, more professional and ethical alternative to sites like Facebook, Preloved, Pets4Homes and Gumtree.

Our platform connects potential adopters with people who need to rehome their pets, initially starting with the UK's most popular pets; dogs, cats and rabbits. This makes it easier for good people to adopt the right pet whilst maximising the chance of pets finding their forever home.

We offer a non-judgmental service to rehomers and give them full control of the process. We're also helping to reduce the number of animals going into shelters. This frees up space and resources for the pets who have been abandoned, need immediate help or specialist care.

Our Values

Kind To Everyone

We believe that...
  • every pet deserves to be safe, loved and respected
  • people who are great candidates for adoption shouldn't be put off by complicated processes or one-size-fits-all rules
  • people who need to rehome their pets should be empowered to do so without being judged

Advocate Adoption

This value sits at the heart of everything we do.

Adoption reduces the demand for puppy farming, industrial-scale breeding, illegal pet imports and other forms of exploitation and abuse.

We’re proud supporters of #AdoptDontShop.

Responsible Rehoming

We’re champions of rehoming. But not at any cost.

We believe in finding the right match between adopters and pets, not taking risks or rushing.

We always prioritise pet welfare. And we offer a safer, more ethical and professional alternative to online marketplaces like Preloved, Pets4Homes, Facebook and Gumtree.

The best way to save a beloved pet is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog, cat or rabbit is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.

Volunteer With Us

As a registered animal welfare charity we rely on support from our highly motivated team of volunteers. We are currently recruiting additional volunteers to join us, and if you'd like to play your part in helping pets find their safe, loving new home, please check out the opportunities below.

We don't know how many dogs, cats and rabbits will continue to be surrendered over the coming months because their owners can't keep them.
But we do know that rescue centres are telling us that they are struggling with space and the funds to care for them. If rescue centres are full what will happen to the pets that need the most help?
At PetRehomer we are determined that things don’t have to be this way. Not in our 21st century, web-connected world. So we created PetRehomer, an online community where people who can’t keep their pets connect directly with people who want to adopt a pet.
Together, we’ll keep dogs, cats and rabbits from ever seeing the inside of a rescue centre or shelter, so they can love and be loved in new homes.
Saving lives. Unburdening rescue centres.
Creating a place where we can make a positive impact. Ending pet homelessness, and enabling responsible rehoming. That’s our mission. That’s what we want you to know about us.
