Rehoming a pet yourself

It’s ideal for pets to stay out of the shelter when they need rehoming. Dakin gives animals a strong and supportive lineup of programs and focused care, but a shelter just isn’t a home, and some animals can become stressed when in shelters.

When you rehome a pet yourself, you can make sure they find a new home that's a match for their needs (you know your pets best), and be as picky as you want about their new home. The pet’s stress is minimized and they remain comfortably at home throughout the process.
