Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

I'm in need of help finding homes for a rescued dog who was pregnant and her puppies. I would love to keep them since I rescued animals in the past. However I have since then moved within the city limits but can't shake picking up stray dogs. In this case it's a little different I have three of my own two are of which rescued. However my home was broken into where I had to keep them while I was at work because one kept digging out which I received a fine for, two days later home intruders came in and shot two of my dogs whom are my life and I spent close to $10,000.00 to keep them alive, amongst the damage to my home. I would live to keep these guys but cannot give the proper care i.e vaccinations, spay or neutering. I only want extreme living homes for them. Please contact me I will send pictures and all information on them. Thank you, Charlene 336-823-0542

I have a beautiful Basset Hound mix Not sure with what, but he looks more like a small shepherd type dog. I am moving out of state and cannot take him with me. He is a very sweet, non-aggressive dog but he loves to bark at cats so would do better in a home without them. Socialized with other dogs, no problem. Please contact me at (336) 686 3361. Thank you.

I have a 30 lb mixed breed female dog (spayed & micro-chipped)that I took in for a friend, she needs a 1 dog home as she is an "attention hound" and attacked my 10 lb dog. She is very sweet & loving, house broken approx. 2 yrs old she is NOT aggressive in fact @ the dog park if other dogs are play fighting she goes the other way, I don't know what prompted this attack (they had just come in from outside when it happened) hope u can help. Would b willing to make a donation & keep fostering her till u have room. Debby 336-337-9031

I have tried everywhere I can to find a no kill place for 2 adorable kittens that were orphaned. I got them , brought them in but I cannot keep them. I am a senior and am already feeding all cats in neighborhood. I will have to take to shelter if I cant find somewhere else. They are gray n white and aren't wild since I brought them in and handle them. I would greatly appreciate if you would get back with me here or call. Judy 434 6499.
