Home2Home For Vets
A rehoming and surrender referral program by PetRescue
Would your clinic benefit from a supportive, non-judgemental and safe rehoming program option to which you can refer your clients in need? PetRescue’s Home2Home program gives pet owners who can no longer keep their pets the tools and support to safely find a new home themselves.
PetRescue’s qualified team works directly with pet owners to find the best home for their pet. The program allows them to continue caring for their pet and take an active part in the rehoming process, talking to and meeting potential adopters. After all, they’re the ones who know their pet best. The PetRescue team provides support post-adoption to ensure that the pet is settling in and offer any advice.
In the instance that the pet owner is unable to find a home for their pet or the adoption doesn’t work out, PetRescue will connect them with a suitable rescue organisation to take over the care of their pet, giving the owner a safe alternative to surrendering their pet to a pound or advertising on Facebook or Gumtree.
How does it work?
Benefits to your clinic:
Less pressure on the clinic to provide a temporary home for pets
Lower rates of elective euthanasia
Offering positive, effective support to your client during a difficult time
The opportunity for continuity of care for the pet and their new owners
Providing an alternative to surrendering to a shelter or pound
‘’I could choose the right home for Chase, knowing him best I knew what he needed, and I knew where he would be most comfortable, safe and well looked after.
Thank you for your help in making the painful process of having to give up a pet more manageable and giving us the relief of knowing we did the right thing for our fur baby.’’
