1. A person-to-person pet adoption can be easier on the animals. Pets can go directly from one home to another, avoiding the stress that can accompany a shelter stay.
2. Sometimes, people feel guilty about making the decision to re-home a pet. Home-to-Home lets pet owners avoid having to publicly surrender their animal to a shelter, yet gives them the ability to find a new loving home for their animal.
3. We can monitor Home-to-Home activity. We take a back seat but keep a watchful stance with Home-to-Home, which gives us confidence in the process. For example, when a pet owner writes up a profile for the pet he wants to re-home, we review the copy before it’s posted to the website and can deny any pet posting that seems suspicious or violates Home-to-Home rules. We can also offer a space (our courtyard or a meeting room) for potential adopters to meet the animal.
