Adoptions by Owner
We understand that life can sometimes present unexpected challenges, and having to rehome your pet can be one of them. That’s why we want to highlight our free service, Adoptions by Owner. Whenever possible, we strongly recommend exploring this option before considering a shelter. Not only is it a cost-free solution, but it also ensures a smoother transition for your furry friend by keeping them in a familiar environment during the rehoming process, reducing stress and aiding in their adjustment.
We acknowledge that it’s not always possible, but when it is, Adoptions by Owner stands as a great alternative. Your decision to find a caring new home for your pet is an act of love, and Adoptions by Owner is here to support you.
Please note that the Humane Society of Sonoma County only facilitates the web page for Adoptions by Owner and does not hold or accept responsibility for any of the pets posted on this page. Potential adopters are solely responsible for communicating with a posted pet’s guardian. HSSC’s Adoption by Owner service is reserved for pet owners finding themselves in the unfortunate situation of needing to rehome their pets. THIS PAGE IS NOT FOR BREEDERS LOOKING TO SELL ANIMALS. All rehoming submissions are reviewed to prevent misuse of the program by anyone breeding pets for profit. Any posts found to be for animals bred/sold for profit will be removed.
This free service is a component of the Humane Society of Sonoma County Rehoming Packet. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating with the pet’s guardian to acquire veterinary records and other necessary information. If your pet is not spayed/neutered we encourage you to have that done prior to rehoming. If there is a financial reason you have not been able to spay/neuter your pet please call the low-cost spay/neuter clinic at (707) 284-3499 to find out how to receive a free/low cost appointment.
If you submit a post here, and if/when you rehome your pet, please let us know via email so we can retire your post: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use the poster’s contact information to make arrangements to meet with these animals.
HSSC is not involved in any way with Adoptions by Owner other than facilitating this web page.
