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.

Spayed Female
4 yrs
Australian Shepherd Mix

Read more about Luna!

Luna has a lot of love to give and is full of energy. She is spayed, up to date on all of her vaccines, microchipped, and housebroken (although she does have some excited urination).

Luna was crate trained and still uses a crate as her safe space but does not enjoy being exclusively confined to her crate. She would do best in a single adult or adult couple relationship where she can get attention and daily exercise. She loves greeting you when you’ve been gone and enjoys playing with her toys, belly rubs, and going for walks.

She has been through training and knows basic commands but is still prone to jumping up, barking, and pulling on a leash. Luna is great with adults but is a bit unsure of small children. She also has had some resource guarding issues with other dogs but never with people. 

She currently lives with a cat and they get along for the most part with a game of chase here and there. Her current family loves her but cannot provide the environment she needs with their newborn baby.

Read more about her!

Our hen has now been alone since last week and needs a new flock to call home. She is still laying but will stop if she is alone to long. She is super nice, easy to pick up, and never runs away. She’s been raised all-organic since she was hatched. Has never has had mites, fleas, and is not plucking. She is beautiful!

Read more about Shelly!

Shelly was gifted to us with his sister about 5 months ago and we were told enthusiastically that both were hens. Unfortunately, Shelly has turned out to be a Sheldon and given that we only have a few hens, he is putting too much… stress… on the girls. He is a good natured young man and would do well joining a larger flock of hens with no rooster or would likely take a more submissive role if joining a flock with a rooster already.

We unfortunately don’t have the space to give him everything he needs long-term and also have to consider the health and happiness of our girls. We really hope to find him a happy farm where he can live his life in peace.

Read more about Bruce!

Bruce Bantam is a very social rooster. We think he is a Dutch Bantam. Unfortunately we didn’t set out to have a rooster but that’s what we got. Hoping to find a home for him!
