After visiting animal shelters across the state of Utah, staff members at the Humane Society of Utah realized there was a problem…a big problem. The shelters are bursting at the seams with cats and they are at risk of being euthanized due to lack of space.
When looking to adopt a pet, what most likely comes to mind is adopting from an animal shelter or rescue. Adopting directly from a pet owner who needs to find a new home for their pet can be just as rewarding though. Through our platform Rehome, current pet owners who can no longer keep their dog or cat can create a profile and share photos and information about their pet. These pets appear in the search results on Adopt-a-Pet.com for millions of potential adopters to see. That’s how Rita found her new Husky Delilah.
