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.

Want to run an ad of your own?

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 Stella!
Stella is a sweet and gentle dog, she has no behavioral issues except she can get bored when staying in one spot for too long. She is great with dogs and kids and walks well on the leash. She loves to play but is also mellow by nature. She is truly fantastic and a beautiful dog. Because we travel so often we know another home with a dog and a large yard would be most ideal for her.

Kika is a well behaved cat that knows her cat box and makes no accidents. She loves belly rubs and loves treats in the morning and evening. I love her with all my heart and would like a great home for her. She is a little shy and takes some time to acclimate but a great companion.

Read more about Buddy!
Buddy is a very agile, sweet and extremely smart dog. Loveable. Unfortunately, my husband came home with litter mates 7 years ago. They are adorable, but they do not mind when they are together. Always in cahoots, they find escape routes and run wild through the neighborhood. I am hoping that Buddy finds a good home. It has taken me 7 years to make this post, because we all love him terribly. However, their shenanigans have pushed me to make this post. When my dogs are separated, they both have great manners. Buddy is good with cats.

Read more about Phoebe!

Phoebe is a sweetheart. She loves playing with little mouse toys and even plays fetch! Strings and feathers are also favorites. She has been evaluated by a vet and is in good health with all her shots. She is microchipped but is an indoor cat currently. Sadly, I’m not able to keep her so I’m looking for a good home for her to thrive.

 Neutered Male

Spaniel Mix

Read more about Piper!
Piper is a wonderful dog that needs a home that can provide behavioral training. He is affectionate and loves to snuggle. He plays very well with other dogs and loves the company. We have three small children and he has always been great with kids. Piper is protective at the front door and has been aggressive with strangers at times. He needs a home where someone can be attentive to him. He needs clear boundaries (like a fence) that can be enforced or he loves to escape. He loves long walks and the dog beach. He will cuddle on your lap and sleep in your bed. He is a special dog that needs the right home.

Domestic Longhair

Read more about Kitty!
We need to find a new loving home for “Kitty” by mid August. He has been our family pet since we adopted him from an elderly woman who was moving into a nursing home about 6 years ago.He is approximately 11-12 years old now.We are so very sad to have to relocate him. My son is now in college and I am moving out of state to attend a graduate program which will necessitate me being on clinical rotations in other cities for days and sometimes weeks at a time so it would not be a good situation for him.

He is a sweet kitty that loves to be petted, sit on your lap or next to you, and rub up against your legs. He is mostly an indoor pet. We let him go out, but he will go out for 5-10 min and come back in so he is more comfortable inside. He likes to rest and nap near a sunny window. He is up to date on all vaccinations and in good health, although a little “plump”.

Let us know if you would like to meet him.

 Spayed Female

Belgian Malinois

Read more about Gracie!
This is my mother’s dog “Gracie” that we are trying to find a good home for. She is a beautiful 4-year-old Belgian Malinois that is sweet with people, dogs and kids. She was raised with a little dog. She is not well trained for leash walking and when excited can jump up so may need a little training. When I did a little training with her she responded very quickly. She is a very sweet playful soul. If we had space for 2 dogs I would take her. She is used to having some room to run outside so would be best if her new home also has space for her to stretch her legs. PLEASE let me know if you know anyone that could give her a loving home. If we do not find her a home by the end of July we will have to surrender her somewhere.
