Community Pet Listings

Some pet owners need to re-home an animal and prefer not to surrender it to a shelter. We help by including their animals here on our Community Pet Listings page. Each post is live on our site for up to 30 days, and is written by the pet’s owner. If you have questions or would like to adopt an animal on the list, simply contact the owner directly by phone or email.

If you need to rehome a pet and you’d like to list it on our site, please visit the Rehome Your Pet section of our website and find the Post in Community Pet Listings tab for instructions. We accept listings for almost any species of animal. All dogs and cats listed must be spayed or neutered.

Read more about Whiskey!
Whiskey is a 3 y/o, 30# chiweenie mix. She was running scared and hungry at Laguna Seca for weeks before being caught by a good samaritan. She is currently in a foster home in Santa Cruz.

Whiskey LOVES petting and attention once she is comfortable. She can be worried of new situations and people and will need someone who will help her become more confident.

Whiskey is smart, playful and very affectionate. She listens well, is food motivated and wants to please her person. She loves walks!

Her housetraining is going wonderfully.Whiskey is doing beautifully with the resident dogs and cat. A confident dog in the home would help Whiskey to be more at ease, but she would likely be ok as an only dog as well.

She will need a quiet home with a secure fenced yard.

Whiskey has been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated.

Domestic Shorthair

Read more about Gray!
My elderly grandma has to move out of her home and needs full time care which means she must rehome her fur baby gray. He is 10 years old and has only ever had one owner my grandma. Hes a little shy and may hide and take some time to warm up but with the right home and a little but of extra love when comfortable he will be cute and cuddly.

Has always been an indoor at night outdoor daytime kitty. He loves food, soft blankets, his scratcher, and to play with string toys. Hes older but a good boy with no health issues. Enjoys sleeping in bed with you at night. He would love a forever home where he can get a little extra attention and live the rest of his days with lots of love and bed snuggles.

He has lived with other cats and gets along with most but has never lived with dogs and im unsure how he will do. He needs a home asap. My grandma is sad to see him go but would love to find him a home so he doesnt end up in the shelter. She needs to move by March 31st so hoping to find the fur baby a home by then!
