At Animal Friends, we know that the best possible place for a pet is at home with a loving family. That's why we're pleased to offer an alternative to surrendering (and adopting!) a pet! Our Home to Home Adoption program was developed to help families who need to make the difficult decision to find a new home for their beloved pets, but want to take a more active role in the adoption process.

Through Home to Home Adoptions, owners have the benefit of meeting, screening and making their own decisions about prospective adopters. Meanwhile, adopters have the benefit of one-on-one interactions with the current owners to gather firsthand information about the animal's likes, dislikes, habits, allergies, medical history and so much more. And, the Home to Home Adoption program enables Animal Friends to help more animals from our community, even when our kennels are full. At its core, this program helps bring together owners and adopters on their terms in their own communities.

Below, you can meet the pets who are currently living with families while they're searching for new homes. If any of these animals seem like a good match, please contact their current families with the contact information found with each featured pet.

Please note: these animals are being made available for adoption by their current families. Animal Friends cannot accept responsibility for the adoptions conducted through contacts made on this page.
