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 Rosco!
Rosco has been a very patient and loving family dog. Potty trained and knows basic commands like sit, lay down, stay and roll over. We adopted him when he was 1 year old.

He will need some training when it comes to strangers and other dogs. He doesn’t do well outside on a leash. Unfortunately, we do not have the time to train him. We also kept the runt of his litter that we are also putting up for adoption.

If possible, we would love to re-home them together. She is a female, black and we know her mother is a pure bred Springer Spaniel. She is 6 months old.

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.

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.

Read more about Zuma!
Zuma was surrendered to a local veterinarian after being hit by a car as his medical needs were too great for the family. He is now fully healed and ready for his forever home!

Zuma is such a loving boy and is full of young dog energy! He is fully crate trained and would do best in a home with a fully fenced yard. He’s fantastic on leash and is currently learning good off-leash behavior. Zuma is a total love bug to everyone he meets, we know you’ll love him too!

Zuma does not have any long standing medical conditions or injuries from his accident, he’s in perfect health. He is fully vaccinated and neutered and his teeth are in great condition.

He is great with dogs, cats, and children of all ages.

Read more about them!
Nikolai is sweet and connective with humans from the day I brought him home. He’s very curious, and seems to be very aware. Who ever brings him and is sister into their life will be very lucky.

His sister Brynn is white with black spots with black lined eyes. A gorgeous beautiful soul as well. They have been well cared for and I’m arranging for them to get neutered and spayed before going to their forever home.

Read more about Moomoo!
Moomoo is a super sweet, friendly and playful 13 year old indoor house cat who was a wonderful companion to our elderly mom, who sadly just passed away. She plays like she is still young, is harness trained and loves going on walks.

We have 2 older cats that are just not accepting her, so we unfortunately can not keep her in our home.

Current blood work done. Results all look good. She does have some external medical issues that are being addressed, and will be paid for by us. We are looking for a home with no other cats to take her and love her the way our mom did.

Read more about Liesel!
Liesel is very loving and gentle. She makes a very good house dog needing minimal space to run around and only needing one walk a day. More if possible. She is a terrific lap dog wanting to spend nearly all her time on her blanket snuggled up.

She is definitely a one dog household dog which is why we are looking for a new home for her. Our other dog brings her a lot of stress in that she has fear anxiety, is high maintenance and is generally bringing Liesel’s quality of life down.

She is very good with children. She travels well but does not like dog parks preferring to stay on the bench next to her humans. She would make an excellent companion dog.

Her health is very good and she has just been in to receive all her most recently needed shots etc. Liesel is a member of our family we are reluctant to rehome but recognize clearly there may be a better situation for her out there.

Read more about Mozart!
Mozart is a beautiful, easy-going, fun-loving, loyal male cat who is 90% Indoors. He loves treats, naps and only eats dry food. Mozart is aka ‘the King of the House’ because he is the only pet in the household – doesn’t play well with other animals. He is healthy and has an annual check up by his vet. I need to rehome Mozart because I am traveling too much and hoping to find him a new and safe home in your home!
