Free online services helps people find new homes for their pets

Regional Animal Services of King County partners with Home to Home

Regional Animal Services of King County has partnered with Home to Home, an online interactive pet placement platform, to help people find new homes for their pets.

While Regional Animal Services of King County strives to ensure surrendered pets have the best possible stay at the Pet Adoption Center, shelters are still a stressful place for animals.

Home To Home is easy to use, according to a Regional Animal Services of King County Aug. 8 news release. People needing to rehome a pet can visit kingcounty.gov/HomeToHome to register for the service and post a profile of their animal, including pictures and a brief description.

Interested adopters can also visit the website to register and search for a new pet. Once a match is made, the current guardian can share information directly with the potential adopter about the pet.

There is no charge to use Home To Home, and no adoption fee. All animals listed on the platform are free to a new home, and no money is allowed to exchange hands. By adopting through Home To Home, a pet can be transitioned directly from their current home to a new home, avoiding the stress of a stay at the animal shelter.

Home To Home isn’t just for cats and dogs. It can be used for all domestic and legal pet species, including birds, small mammals, and reptiles. Using Home To Home helps prevent crowding at local shelters, freeing up resources for pets that have no other option.

Pets posted to the site have not been evaluated for health or behavior. Potential adopters should ask the current owner for details on the pet’s personality, medical history and veterinary records. All adopters are encouraged to take their new pet to a veterinarian for a wellness exam, especially if there are any concerns.
