Supported self-rehoming is a way for animal shelters to help people rehome their pets, without those pets needing to enter the physical shelter. In most cases, supported self-rehoming is more humane for people and pets because it allows the original owner to help select, and potentially stay in touch with the new owner, and reduces the number of family pets who have to live in a kennel.
Approximately 36% of animals entering animal shelters come in under the intake type called “owner surrender.” Many pet owners are willing to rehome their pets directly to another home but are unaware of the resources and tools available to rehome safely and successfully.
