Rehoming your pet with us
We understand that rehoming your pet can be a daunting thing to think about especially if you have been together for many years.
Lots of people often have to rehome their pets due to losing their job, health reasons, moving abroad or financial difficulties.
Some people don't know where to start and posting on sites such as Gumtree can be dangerous as there are people looking for pets to sell on or use in dog fighting rings.
At Help2Rehome Scotland, we find animals new homes through our re-homing register and doing appeals.
Our register is filled with people who are looking to adopt a new pet.
We also do appeals through our social media pages.
When someone shows an interest in an animal we have for re-homing, we make arrangements to go and home check the potential new owner.
If their home is suitable, we go ahead and re-home the animal they have applied for.
Because our home checks are so vigorous, it is very unlikely that animals are returned to us.
If for any reason an animal is returned, they either go back to their previous owners or we can place them with a foster carer until a suitable home is found.
We DO NOT use kennels or catteries for any animals we are seeking new homes for.
We believe that all animals deserve a place in a nice warm, safe home until they find their forever home, that's why we have a team of foster carers who look after animals in their homes until a forever home is found.
Once an animal is settled in their forever home, we often get updates and photos from new owners that we can pass onto previous owners.
