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 Pablo!

We have had Pablo since he was an 8 week old pup. On June 16 he will be 7 years old. He weighs approximately 22 lbs. We did a doggy DNA test on him. His mother was full cocker. His father was a mix of several breeds, poodle, finish spitz, Pomeranian.

Probably because of his poodle ancestor, he does not shed. Of course that means he has to be trimmed periodically.

He is a sweet dog, however, on rare occasions, he has bitten if startled. When grooming him it is advisable to use a muzzle. Because of this we would not recommend him for a household with children.

Because of travel and other commitments we are no longer able to maintain a pet, so want to find a loving home for little Pablo.

Read more about Dave!

Everyone needs a Dave in their life. Dave is a sweet one-year-old boy who loves to be near you. You can tell because that tail gets wagging as soon as he sees you! We have only known Dave a short time but so far we can tell some of his favorite things are 1) going on walks 2) chewing on a rope and 3) tossing his bully stick in the air to himself to (try to) catch it. He may only be one, but Dave already has the big-boy basics down – he is housebroken, knows how to sit and is learning how to shake!

In case you couldn’t tell by the games of catch he (tries to) play with himself, Dave’s got a goofy side. He loves to roll around and onto his back, begging for tummy rubs. He does this adorable thing of laying on his tummy with his back legs stretched straight out behind him.We are trying to find Dave a forever home. Dave is a good guy and is just waiting to be welcomed into a loving where he can be your best bud!

Read more about Lucky!

Very sweet kitty cat named Lucky needs a new home. I’m moving somewhere I can’t have any pets. I’m not sure how old he is, as he was left with us over a year ago. In that year he has been the best kitty. He’s curvy, loves to snuggle and is good with kids. He’s a very mellow guy.

Read more about Sky!

We have had Sky Sky since she was a puppy. She is roughly 30 lbs, chipped, spayed and up to date with her rabies vaccine. Sky loves hopping in the car for a ride and going for walks. Her absolute favorite thing to do is play fetch with a ball. She wants to be your best friend and go everywhere with you. If you let her, she will curl up on your lap and snuggle up with you on the bed. Sky tends to be shy at first, but once she warms up to you, she is an absolute love. When left home alone, she does fine in her large outdoor kennel or left inside.

She has lived with larger dog her whole life, but tends to chase animals smaller then her. She has also lived with children her whole life, but most recently she is showing us that small children are not good for her. Her ideal home would not include any children or cats. If you are looking for a companion then our girl is for you!

Read more about Ruby!

Ruby is an awesome puppy. She loves to go on walkies and is very friendly with people. She hasn’t spent a lot of time with other dogs, but I do feel she would be best served in a house with another dog. We have attended PetSmart puppy classes and she knows sit and down. She loves to play fetch and is working on “drop it.” We are working on crate training. She sleeps through the night, though she will wake you up if she needs to potty in the middle of the night. She has all her puppy shots and has been de-wormed. She is currently taking hartgard and nexgard. Her skin is sensitive so she is on a grain free puppy food.

This puppy is pure love.

Read more about Tucker!

Tucker is very gentle and loves to be around people. Even at 5+ years, he has a younger state of mind. He can be full of energy or a quiet napping buddy. He is very well behaved and has never had an accident in the house.

Tucker is the sweetest boy and it will be sad to see him go but we know a good home is out there for him. He plays well with all other dogs no matter the size and loves to be around people.

Read more about Jax!

Jax is a friendly and playful dog who craves human attention. Unfortunately, I will be moving out of the area and can not bring him with me. He needs a family who has time to dedicate to him by taking him on walks/runs and playing with him. He would benefit from some agility training after all he is a German Shepherd. Over all he is a extremely smart and friendly dog.
