 What should I do if I can no longer keep my dog or cat?

Consider finding your dog or cat another home instead of surrendering him/her to a shelter because it will be less stressful for your animal, allows you to play a part in uniting him/her with a new family, and makes additional space available for animals whose lives are immediately at risk in surrounding municipal shelters. Please utilize our Rehoming Packet and our free "Adoptions by Owner" website listings.

This free service is a component of the Sonoma Humane Society's Re-homing Assistance Program. If you need to find a home for a pet you can no longer care for, please post your own pet's photo, description - including age, if they've been spayed or neutered and contact information. Your posting will not appear immediately but will be reviewed within 48 hours. It will remain on our site for 30 days, at which time you can re-post if you choose. Please remember to include your contact information in your post. Also, visit your posting often for messages from potential adopters interested in your pet.
