Rehome – a surrender alternative
Looking for a new home for your pet? Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com and The Petco Foundation may be an option for you. This is a no-cost, self-rehoming service where pet owners can create a profile for their pet, review applications from potential adopters, and coordinate meet-and-greets with potential adopters. These private adoptions take place without ever having to set foot in a shelter. Please note, NOCO Humane is not affiliated with Rehome and does not facilitate the adoption process for pets available through this program. We make this information available to you as another alternative to surrendering your pet.
Sometimes the greatest gift you can give your pet, is the gift of a new home
- We recognize that this can be a difficult decision, and are here to help you through this process. Feel free to call us at 970.226.3647 ext. 0 and we are happy to discuss your situation with you.
- If surrendering your pet due to a behavior concern, explore our online help sheets and/or consider seeking the guidance of an animal behaviorist.
- As an independent, nonprofit organization, we ask for a $40 pet relinquishment fee ($5o for individuals that live outside of NOCO Humane’s Animal Protection & Control jurisdictions). Surrender fees vary for exotic pets, fish, and farm animals. No pet will be turned away due to an owner’s inability to pay. This relinquishment fee will help us care for more than 10,000 animals in the year to come.
