Rehoming a Pet You Can No Longer Keep

At South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter we understand how complex and difficult the decision to rehome a pet can be. We understand that rehoming can be the most compassionate choice for your pet. Our Outreach Rehome program empowers owners to take charge of the rehoming process and offers your pet the dignity of a home to home placement, rather than a shelter cage or kennel. The SJRAS Outreach team will support you throughout the rehoming process.

Before you rehome - can we help you keep your pet?

SJRAS Community Outreach has resources available to help people keep their pets. Please visit the Community Outreach section of this site to learn about the many ways that we can assist you.
