Where Can I Put a Rottweiler Up for Adoption?

by Adopt a Pet, | January 8, 2024


You can put your rottweiler up for adoption in a range of different places online and offline. You’ll likely find that you prefer some of these over others. Even though you probably never thought you’d have to give up your rottweiler, things happen in life that you can’t control. In these difficult times, consider using an option for adoption that does provide you with some control over who gets your dog.

Check out the various options and the methods for adoption and find the one that you feel will be best for your current needs.

With People You Know

The easiest and fastest way to get your dog adopted is by allowing someone you already know to adopt. This could be a coworker who knows that you have to give up your dog and who has been looking to adopt. It might be a family member that already knows your dog and loves her.

One of the benefits of allowing people you know to adopt is that you can more easily determine whether they’re the right choice for your dog or not. After all, she has a personality that will need to mesh well with her new owner, whoever that might be. Think about the things that your dog needs to be happy and healthy and be sure that she’ll thrive in her new home.

Shelters and Rescues

These facilities could be another option to consider. However, when you surrender your dog to these organizations, not only do you give up your legal rights, but you have no say over who adopts them. Also, there’s no guarantee that they’ll be adopted once they’re admitted to the facilities.

Still, the shelters and rescues always try to do their best to care for the animals and to find them homes. Rescues are no-kill facilities, so your dog could be there for the rest of her life. Shelters only have space for a certain number of animals, and to make room, they may have to euthanize. It’s not something they want to do, but it’s sometimes necessary.

Online Sites

You can also find online pet adoption sites that you can use. It’s important that you go through an actual pet adoption website rather than using something like Facebook Marketplace, though. People who hadn’t even been looking for a dog might see your rottweiler and decide they want her. You don’t want someone adopting on a whim. Instead, stick to well-known sites, and be sure there’s always a rehoming fee, which reduces the risk for your dog.

Consider Using Rehome

A great option is Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com. Rehome is a peer-to-peer pet adoption service that makes it easy to connect with people looking to adopt. The site is easy to use and free for owners. You can create a profile for your dog, which is then published directly onto Adopt-a-Pet.com for potential adopters to view. Rehome also allows you to speak directly to applicants and will equip you with tips on how to choose who gets to bring your dog home. The process provides you with more control and more peace of mind about where you dog ends up.
