You Can Help End Senior Pet Abandonment and Reduce Shelter Overcrowding.
Each year, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters: 3.3 million dogs and 3.2 million cats. Because many shelters are overcrowded, more than 1.5 million of these animals will be unnecessarily euthanized. That's 4,100 animals per day!
When you surrender a pet to a shelter, their fate is completely unknown. Some pets spend months, to years in a shelter, waiting to be adopted. Oftentimes, the stress of being in a shelter can change a pet’s personality, making it more difficult (and sometimes impossible) for them to be adopted.
Finding a new home for your pet through responsible rehoming is a better solution than surrendering your pet because it allows you to be sure that your pet goes to a good home and their fate is completely within your control.
The goal of the Rehoming Project is to provide vital tools and resources to pet owners who may otherwise surrender their pet to a shelter.
The objective of the Rehoming Project is to reduce over-crowding at shelters, rescues, and senior pet sanctuaries throughout the United States, especially at kill facilities; to reduce the number of senior pets who are surrendered to these facilities; to increase awareness about responsible rehoming; and to increase the likelihood of successful placement of senior pets whose current owners can no longer care for them. With rehoming, pets remain in the home they are accustomed to while their owner advocates on their behalf to find new home for their pet.
Your gift can help save senior pets from an uncertain future.
With your help, we can keep senior pets out of shelters and place them in loving, caring homes.
