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 Grayson!

Grayson is beautiful green eyed, grey (“Russian Blue”). He would be happy to find his very own person in a loving household, where he is the one and only cat.

Grayson is friendly, affectionate, and energetic. He loves fur and feather toys and is very playful. He was an outdoor cat until November, when he was attacked by a raccoon and had stitches in his cheek. He is inside now, and is healing up very well, with his fur growing back and his disposition unaffected. He deserves a safe indoor home. There are too many predators in his outdoor territory, and there is a dominant cat in the household, that makes re-homing him necessary. We are hoping to match him with someone who is a patient experienced cat person, who will give him lots of love and is committed to providing a stimulating indoor environment for him. All vaccines are up to date.

Ruby is a sweet and loving companion. She enjoys taking walks, is great on leash, is house-trained, and loves to hang out with her person. She does not bark in general but will if someone comes to the door. She seems to be better with adults and is not used to small children. Ruby loves ocean walks! I just can’t spend enough time with her and she loves people!

Indy and Lucy

Spayed Females
8 and 9 years
Northern Breed Mixes

Read more about them!

Meet Indy (white) and Lucy (dark). They are both northern breed mixes. Indy is a Husky mix (around 42lbs) and Lucy is a Malamute- Shepherd mix (around 60lbs)

They both have been outside-only dogs and are very bonded…so they would need to stay together. Particularly Lucy needs Indy. If you separate them, Lucy experiences some anxiety. Together they are great and calm! Unfortunately, I am selling my large country-property so I need to find a new home for them.

They would do well in the country-side with a fenced-in area.

Indy loves humans and loves to be pet. Lucy is a little bit more shy and you need to earn her trust. But once you have it, she loves to get her belly rubbed. (But both are fine with people!) Both are good with kids (particularly Indy) and both are good with larger dogs.

They have all their vaccinations. I would be willing to help pay for fixing a fence or pay for a few months of their food. I just want a loving home for them.

Read more about Frankie!

Frankie has been a loyal dog for 9 years. We recently had a baby and a change in living situation and we are not able to give him the exercise and attention he deserves- it’s breaking our heart but we need to find a great home for him!

He has been trained to walk calmly on a leash and knows sit, and wait. He also knows the “place” command and knows to go there when he needs to relax or wait for his food. He loves to hike, loves to chase balls into the surf at the beach.

He has some reactivity to the doorbell or to unknown people at the door. He will bark at the doorbell or knocking. He gets along with other dogs but he generally will not play with other dogs. He likes his humans and his squeaky toys.
