How This New Adoption Site Helps Pets in Need of Re-Homing
What if you had to rehome your pet? I know it's awful to think about, but it does happen... In fact, it happens to 2.5 million pets a year. These animals are surrendered to shelters because their owners can't keep them, but shelters already have 5 million strays and abused animals to take in each year! So, millions of animals end up being euthanized.
What if we told you there's a place that can help? Get Your Pet is an online community where people who can't keep their pets connect directly with people who want to adopt a pet.
Get Your Pet is a national home-to-home pet adoption site that's helping dogs and cats in need of rehoming bypass the shelter system. The site is working with animal shelters across the U.S. (including include ACC of NYC, ACCT Philly, San Diego Humane, Maricopa County Animal Care & Control, Louisiana SPCA and Humane Society Silicon Valley) to potentially relieve them of one-third of their annual intake by offering an alternative resource if pet parents need to rehome their beloved pet.
Get Your Pet saves dogs and cats from surrender to the stressful shelter system, exposure to illness, and the possibility of being euthanized.
Here is a video montage of some of the successful home-to-home pet adoptions via getyourpet.com.
