The Coming Tsunami of Pet Homelessness

On January 31st, the federal eviction moratorium that has protected millions of American families from losing their homes throughout the global pandemic, will be lifted. More than 40 million Americans will suddenly find themselves homeless and without the means to care for their pets as a result. We’re on the brink of a tsunami of beloved family pets filling our shelters well-beyond capacity and time is of the essence. The team here at Adopt-a-Pet.com is already seeing a surge in new pets added to Rehome, our peer-to-peer pet adoption platform, and we want you to know that Rehome continues to be here as a safety net for the pets you refer into the program.

If your organization already has a shelter or rescue account with Adopt-a-Pet.com, you can start referring immediately by sending relinquishing owners to www.Rehome.Adoptapet.com where they list their own pet for adoption. Visit the link below for a shelter/rescue FAQ on how Rehome works.
