Luckily, we have provided a number of tips which can make re-homing your dog an easier process, to find out these useful tips, read on.



    How to Re-home dogs



    • Try to avoid sending your dog to a rescue shelter as it can distress the dog further than necessary; it is advisable that the dog is passed straight on to another loving family. Yet if the dog has a medical issue a dog shelter may be a better resort as they will be able to provide the correct treatment.



    • Try and place adverts for re-homing your dogs in as many places as possible,  this will increase the chances of your dog being re-homed. Remember to include all important details of the dog such as medical information, age, why you are re-homing the dog and your basic contact details. It can also help to include a picture of your dog which will appeal to potential owners. You can place a free advert to re-home your dog here on Dogs and Puppies, and you can also add pictures at no extra cost.


    • In order for your advert to gain maximum awareness you can often place your advert at the top of listings at a small price, you can do just that here on Dogs and Puppies. This would be recommended as then more potential owners will see the advert and hopefully re-homing your dog will be a faster process.



    • Ask around friends and family if they know anyone who is looking for a dog. In an ideal situation someone you know may re-home your dog, you will then be able to ensure the dog gets the quality of life it deserves.



    • When potential owners enquire about the dog remember to be as honest as possible, as it is vital they know everything about the dog, including the temperament. This will then reduce the chance of the dog being re-homed again in the future.
