    Rehoming a Pet/Stray Intake 

    If you have found a stray pet, please file a found report.

    If you need to rehome your personal pet, try these steps:

    • Submit a profile to Home To Home™ and a PACC representative will be in touch with you to assist with marketing and connecting with potential adopters. 
    • Post your pet on  Rehome by Adopt-A-Pet. Adopt-A-Pet will create contracts and collect an adoption fee, but you will receive the applications from potential adopters. You'll get the final say about which home would be the best for your pet.
    • Check No-Kill Pima County’s resource list to see if there are any local resources that may be able to help you keep your pet. 
    • If your pet came from a shelter or rescue other than PACC, please contact them first. You can find a list of shelters and rescues on Petfinder.com.
    • Network your pet to your family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors. Post them on your social media and ask your friends to share! 

    Other Tips:

    DO post your pet on many different websites including Facebook, Twitter, Craigslist, Nextdoor and wherever else you think an adopter may see them!

    DO have an honest conversation with any potential adopters to ensure their home is a good match for the pet.

    DO consider getting your pet spayed or neutered if they aren't already and getting them up to date on their shots. This may may your pet more adoptable for a new home. Here's a list of low-cost options for all of those things.
