The History of Pet Adoptions Network
Meet Our Founders:
They say that in life you should do what you love. As the founders of Pet Adoptions Network, we are so privileged to be doing just that.
Our pet rehoming service was born out of the growing need for a safe and effective alternative for pet owners faced with the very difficult situation of having to rehome a cherished dog or cat.
I have been an animal lover since birth, and a pet owner since I was old enough to take on the responsibility of having my own pet.
As a teenager in Cochrane, Alberta, my “hobby” was doing chores for my Mom, teaching horseback riding lessons to children, and babysitting to earn money so that I could afford to adopt dogs and cats out of the local “kill shelter”.
I would then find forever homes for my rescued pets by placing amusing and heartfelt “home wanted” ads in the paper, and posting hand written flyers on bulletin boards, with vet clinics, and pet stores. through newspaper ads.
That was more than 35 years ago, and, after spending the last 20 years as a website designer and SEO specialist, I am so happy to be able to continue my passion – finding good homes for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens throughout the USA and Canada.
I have a great deal of empathy for pet owners who can no longer care for their companions. I can only imagine the grief and worry pet owners experience when faced with having to make this decision.
Realizing that there was a great need for an alternative for these pets and owner’s, I decided to combine my love of pets with my training in Journalism and a “black belt” in online marketing to provide what was needed. And that is how Pet Adoptions Network came to be.
My team and I work diligently to get your pets’ story in front of thousands of potential adopters – carefully targeted by their location and interests. As “pet adoptions journalists”, we are very proud and honored to have united a rapidly growing number of pre-loved pets with wonderful forever families.

We strongly believe that pet owners facing such an emotionally devastating situation should not be judged – but that they should be given compassion, understanding, assistance and empathy.
There are so many understandable situations where finding a good home for your pet can be necessary. No pet owner plans for these circumstances.
Situations like serious illness, severe pet allergies, the demands of parenting small children, financial difficulties, increased job demands and even the death of the pet owner can make rehoming a pet necessary. Very often it is the kindest thing you can do for your pet.
There are so many wonderful pet lovers who would welcome the chance to provide a loving forever home for pre-loved pets. But locating the right adoptive family – and avoiding the dangers that lie in wait for well-meaning pet owners can be a daunting challenge.
Find My Pet A Home is here for you. We act as your pet’s “Public Relations Team”, helping to locate good potential adopters for pet owners to choose from.
We also act as your pets’ SECURITY FORCE. We put the safety and well-being of your pet – and your peace of mind first by taking strong measures to carefully screen adopters BEFORE you meet with them or make that all-important decision to place your pet in their care.
We gently guide you through the process of choosing the right home for your pet, and then transitioning your pet into their new home with the least amount of stress for your pet – and for you.
Follow-up is so very important in pet rehoming, and our team make sure that all is well with your pet and their new family for six months after your pet is placed. We do well-being checks by phone every 45 days, keeping you posted on how your pet is doing with their new family.
If for any reason, things do not work out with the new family, our staff are here to help find another suitable home; at no additional cost to you, and while your pet stays with the adoptive family. This guarantee is offered to protect your pets’ future welfare, and to give you the utmost in peace of mind, particularly if you are facing a long distance move.
