How It Works For Rehomers
For most people, rehoming a pet is a really difficult but necessary decision. We know you want the best for them so we’re here to help. To make the rehoming process as straightforward and safe as possible, here’s a guide to how it works.
1. Create your pet's profile
To attract the most suitable adopters, create a detailed profile of your pet. Make sure you include:
Their breed, age, size, any health conditions, microchip status and if they’ve been neutered.
Description of their personality, habits, likes and dislikes, how much exercise they’re used to.
What sort of home they need. Could they potentially live with other pets or children? Are they used to having a garden or outdoor access?
Recent pictures. Use square or landscape images in .jpeg or .jpg format.
2. Get your pet's profile approved
To help keep everyone safe, all listings are subject to approval by the PetRehomer team. Before we post your pet’s profile on the site, we’ll:
Check your pet’s profile thoroughly
If we’re happy, we’ll post your pet’s profile on the site
We may call you to clarify any points that we need to
3. Choose an adopter to take to the next stage
To make the process safer, smoother and quicker, we review all applications for pets and rule out any that aren’t suitable.
We’ll let you know on your PetRehomer dashboard if we find any potentially good matches.
You review the shortlist then decide who you want to take to the next stage, if anyone, and turn down the rest.
4. The adopter reserves your pet and has a home check
You let the adopter know you want to proceed with their application, then we….
Ask them to reserve your pet by paying a fully refundable fee. Once the funds have been received, no one else can apply for your pet.
Arrange for them to have a home check to make sure their living environment is suitable for your pet.
We use the results of the home check to make a recommendation. If the adopter fails the home check, we’ll get in touch to discuss it with you.
5. Chat with the adopter
As soon as your pet is reserved, you can chat with the adopter directly using our messaging service.
Feel free to ask lots of questions. You’re not locked into anything at this stage, so it’s ok to change your mind if it doesn’t feel right.
To keep all pets and humans safe, do not take the conversation off PetRehomer, share your contact details or ask the adopter for theirs.
