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 Murphy!
She is fine on her own for a couple of hours, but does need at least two walks a day to tire her out. She is a very sweet dog, but needs more exercise than my kids are willing to give her.

Read more about Moss!
He really would benefit from an indoor / outdoor home as he has high energy and loves stimulation. It is incredibly unfortunate that we have to part ways, but I’m hoping to find him a good home with lots of love and maybe a backyard or outdoor option for him to run around.
He has met dogs before and they’ve gotten along, so he could go to a home with other animals. He loves to cuddle and is very empathetic.

Read more about Dobby!
Dobby is 100lbs of cuddle bug. We rescued him from the shelter in November of 2022. Before that, he had been abandoned and was found in Nisene Marks. It was clear to us that Dobby was previously house trained because he’s never had an accident. He can sit, stay, leave it, and do just about anything else you ask him for a treat in return.
We are having to part w Dobby because he isn’t a good fit for the unpredictable behaviors of children. Likely due to what seems like separation anxiety he gets reactive to our kids. He would be a great dog for someone who has a lot of land -his breed is for livestock guarding- is home most of the time (farmer?) and does not have children. Dobby loves other dogs, eating grass like a cow, and generally being your shadow.

Read more about Shelby!
She would be best in a home without cats, as she likes to chase them. Shelby has lived with another dog in the past, so she would do well with another calm and friendly dog. Shelby hasn’t met any young kids, so we’re not sure how she would do with them. She was raised with teenagers and loves to play!
She’s spayed, microchipped, house-trained, and has a medium energy level. She does well on leash, is okay when left alone, and knows basic commands. She’s really a wonderful dog who deserves another loving home.

Read more about Oswald!
I would love to keep this amazing cat but he was diagnosed with Feline Leukemia (FELV) and we have another cat. It is hard to believe because he is so healthy and strong so he may shed the virus in time. FELV is contagious and we already have another cat so I need to find him a new home where he will be the only kitty or there is another cat with FELV already.
