Rehome a Dog or Cat in San Diego, California


No responsible pet owner wants to give up their dog or cat, but there are many understandable reasons why pet owners need to rehome pets in San Diego and surrounding areas.

Placing your beloved family member in a shelter or rescue is NOT the answer. Most San Diego area animal shelters are filled to capacity with pets needing homes, and some even put pets to sleep if they are considered “unadoptable”, or if the shelter needs to make room for more pets. It is not something that most pet owners would want for their cherished companions.

Finding a loving new home for your pet while they remain in your care is the very best solution. And that is exactly what our dedicated San Diego pet rehoming team do for our clients.

Real Reviews From Our Clients

Hello Debbie, 

Thank you for all your help in finding a family to adopt Rusty. The family that adopted Rusty will love and care for as a member of the family. Finding the right family is important because he got off a rough start. The screening process and introductions are well worth fee.

Being assured that he will be well cared for is the most important thing. Rusty deserved a good home and family. Thanks to your efforts and patience the right home was found. Also thank you for guiding me through the process.

Rolfe and Alison are wonderful people. I have received text messages and phone calls letting me know how Rusty adjusting. While we miss Rusty I know he is being well cared for and is making good adjustment.

I am more than happy to recommend you to anyone who needs to find a new home for a pet.

Thanks again for your help and efforts.


P.S. Last report Rusty has glued himself to Alison and she is treating him like a little prince.  



Owner, Rusty - German Shepherd Chow Chow Mix Rehomed in Garland TX

Kaeli and Alli Rehomed in Seattle!

Debbie from Pet Rehoming Network helped us through a very trying period of our lives. Due to life circumstances, we had to rehome 2 of our family cats who are 14 years of age, after doing much research and calling local services, I was at wits end because it doesn’t seem as though there’s a way to rehome 2 older cats.

Kaeli Alli Calico Cats For Adoption S

Our cats have never been separated so having to rehome 2 cats to the same home was our top priority but we know that’s a tall order. After a couple months, we found the most perfect home within 20 miles from where we live and we couldn’t have asked for a better situation.

This service has alleviated so much pressure, stress, and guilt but in the end it worked out as planned, it just took a little patience. We are extremely grateful and at peace with this decision and can’t wait to visit our girls in their new home.

Thanks again Debbie!!!

Owners, Kaeli + Alli - 2 Senior Cats Rehomed Together in Seattle WA

I never in a million years thought I would be in the position to have to make the very difficult decision to rehome my pets. 

My caring rehoming specialist (Debbie Moore) was kind, compassionate, supportive and completely non-judgmental of my situation or decision. She was diligent in asking necessary questions about my pets in order to find them the very best situation in their new forever homes. Milo transitioned into his new home last month and he and his new owner are very happy together.

Although there was significant interest in my dogs, Debbie assured me to take my time in order that I was 100% comfortable in my decision to select the right home and owners for my babies; when I disqualified a candidate, she never got frustrated with me and encouraged me to be picky; Rigby’s new family is overcome with love and emotion, have kept me updated with his transition and I’m truly confident that Rigby was somehow meant to bring joy to both our families.

My heart is broken without my babies, but I know they are receiving the love, attention and affection they deserve. Thank you petrehoming and specifically, Debbie Moore. You made a heart-wrenching situation as smooth as possible.

Owner, Rigby - Havanese Dog Rehomed in New York

Your organization exceeded my expectations!

We had to rehome our precious Havenese named Milo. I did not know where to start. So I started googling and came across the Pet Rehoming Network organization.

Deborah was great and very helpful from the start of the process. To make a long story short Milo was rehomesd less than a week from the time his pictures were posted across social media. I am convinced that Milo went a loving family.

My Pet Rehoming Team were:


Would you recommend our service to other pet owners? YES!

I could not have done it without the help from this organization, namely Deborah.

Thank you so much!

Patti Armstead

Owner, Milo - Havanese Dog Rehomed in Raleigh NC

To whom it may concern,

I can most definitely recommend this service. I was similarly torn and agonized over my decision for months. I had two cats who I’d had since they were tiny kittens–for 6 and 10 years. My life changed drastically last year requiring me to be away from my home base for about half the time. I’d tried many options with cat sitters and the like and it just wasn’t working out–they were very stressed with me being gone so much and it showed. They were only normal when I was home for extended periods which wasn’t often enough.

I made the difficult decision to rehome them after a lot of considering of options. I offered them to friends to no avail. Finally I decided to try and find them homes. They were not bonded that much to each other as one lived primarily upstairs and the other downstairs so I knew I didn’t have to place them together. Taking them to a shelter was not an option.

I first placed an ad myself on Craigslist but the response I got was sketchy and a stranger wrote me and strongly advised me NOT to place them, at least for free, there. I kind of freaked out and removed the ad.

I then started googling and found Debbie’s service. I didn’t see really any reviews but I just had a gut feeling and frankly I was kind of desperate. I was getting ready to leave inless than a month for a 5 week away from home and once I made the decision to rehome them, it just would be easier for it to happen before I left–on all concerned esp the cats.

I felt right about it, paid her fee for both cats. She contacted me right away and did the phone interview then I let the whole thing go in her hands.

My younger cat, Coco, was placed within a week to a perfect home. I knew she would be easier as she was younger, white with a heart shape on her back and extra digits on her toes. She went to a family with a 17 year old introverted daughter who the mother was hoping to find a companion for. They found the listing via Craigslist (Debbie’s great ad) and came to get her the next day. I gave them the food she was used to eating, her scratching pole, a brush and even her used litter box (I had 2).

Then I was left with the second cat, Sabine. I knew it would be harder with her and had an alternate plan for when I was gone, not ideal but doable. Lo and behold the weekend before I left the perfect situation arose for her. A couple seeking one cat and they fell in love with her pictures. They came to the house (after Debbie’s extensive screening and a phone call with them myself) and picked her up. I was sad of course but I knew I had done the right thing. They were the perfect match for her.

I knew it was the right thing that I was no longer a responsible or adequate pet owner and this was the best thing for the cats. I had no second thoughts and now feel completely relieved.
It was all handled professionally and with no issues at all. I don’t have even the smallest complaint.

I wish you luck and any other questions, feel free to ask!
