The non-profit’s #HomeWithRehome Challenge aims to ensure beloved family pets never enter animal shelters.
/PRNewswire/ — Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, is calling on pet owners across the United States to prepare for the worst-case scenario by making a documented plan for their pet’s care to be enacted in the event they are no longer able to provide care themselves. The #HomeWithRehome Challenge encourages pet parents to get ahead of further unanticipated events, like those many Americans experienced due to Covid-19 and related economic turmoil, by creating a written plan for their pet’s lifetime care.
“Covid-19 has thrown us all a major curve ball, and for many Americans that has presented an insurmountable change. For some, there have been unexpected financial impacts like the loss of a job or a stable place to call home and, tragically, for others that has meant serious illness and even death,” says Dana Puglisi, Adopt-a-Pet.com’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re joining forces with pet lovers across the country to, as a community, do what is within our control now to mitigate potentially devastating outcomes of personal crises for beloved family pets down the road. Our non-profit organization offers pet owners the free tools they need to keep their pets out of shelters, including our ground-breaking Rehome program. With this critical campaign, we’re aiming to get the word out far and wide.”
Adopt-a-Pet.com’s Rehome program is a peer-to-peer pet adoption platform that has already been used by hundreds of thousands of pet owners who are facing the heartbreaking reality that they can no longer care for their pet. Rehome provides pet owners with an easy-to-use adoption program complete with adoption applications, guidance on screening and selecting adopters, and access to millions of pet adopters to potentially match with their pet. The #HomeWithRehome Challenge aims to spread further awareness of the innovative and life-saving technology and encourage pet owners to make it a part of a larger documented guardianship plan for their pets to be enacted in the event tragedy strikes.
