Need to “Re-Home” your Cat?

If you are interested in placing your cat into a new home, below are suggestions to assist you.

  • Spread the word to family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and even out-of-state relatives and friends. Social media is a great way to do this; however, you have to be honest about the circumstances and about your pet’s shortcomings when describing the type of home your pet would be best suited for.
  • Try searching for assistance through online rescue & adoption services. Get a list of rescue groups in your area and our surrounding states at: www.petfinder.com or on the Rescue & Assistance page for Las Vegas.
  • Consider posting your cat on neighborhood forums, like www.Nextdoor.com, as many people in your area will consider helping you.
  • Place a color photo advertisement on bulletin boards at vet clinics, pet supply stores, & grooming shops.
  • Reach out to online local & nationwide breed-specific rescue groups and clubs, if applicable.
