Rehoming Assistance

Need To List Your Pet for Adoption?


Due to limited resources, LOVEPAWS is currently unable to take pets into our care from owners. If you wish to have us help you re-home your pet to another owner while your pet remains in your care, please note the following:

  • The re-homing process takes an average of 3-4 weeks and requires daily communication between us and you.
  • We will require excellent pictures and videos of your pet to help re-home them.
  • We will require vet records be sent to us.
  • Your pet must be spayed/neutered, up to date on rabies, test negative for heart worm and tick-borne diseases (4DX test) and have a fecal test showing your pet does not have parasites before we proceed with the rehoming process.

If you are able to meet these criteria, please fill out the re-homing form and we will get back to you within 5-7 business days. We are an all-volunteer based rescue.

Note: Completing the form does not guarantee re-homing assistance. We can only assist in re-homing dogs we feel are medically and behaviorally adoptable.


SUBMITTING INFO: If you decide to re-home your pet, we will ask you for pics, vids, a biography and all vet records for your pet. We use this information to post your pet on our website.

PROCESSING APPLICATIONS: If we receive adoption applications for your pet, we will complete a thorough review of any adoption applications we receive for your pet, share applications with you, and work with you on selecting a new home for your pet.

MEET AND GREETS: If we approve an application, we will reach out to you to schedule a meet and greet with the applicant. (LOVEPAWS will no longer help re-home your pet if you deny more than one approved adopter. Note: The owner is responsible for getting their pet to all meet and greets. )

FINAL STEPS: We will offer wording for a private contract between you and the adopter if you choose.

It is the adopter’s decision as to whether they wish to have you keep in touch with your pet(s) after re-homing. You must respect their decision.

LOVEPAWS does not obtain ownership or responsibility of your pet(s) during any time of the re-homing process.
