If you want to re-home your dog yourself, Pet Adoptions Network is an online community that connects people who need to find a new home for their pet with people who want to adopt a pet like theirs.
The Pet Adoptions Network provides much of what you need to help you find a new home for your pet without having to surrender them to a shelter or rescue. You have more control of where your pet goes and it leaves space in the shelter or rescue for those pets who have no where else to stay until they find their new family.
ABHDR is not, in any way, affiliated with the Pet Adoptions Network.
On occasion, we are asked to help someone - an individual or another rescue group - rehome a herding breed. Although we would love to help every dog find a furever home, we are a small group with limited resources. Our time and resources need to go into finding furever families for the dogs that are actually in our care. The sooner we can find homes for our foster dogs, the sooner we can open up space for the next dog in need.
We will happily cross post herding breeds in another Alberta shelter or rescue group on our facebook page when asked or if we happen to come across a post in our newsfeed. We want to see any herding breed, in any local facility, find an appropriate home. If it is deemed to be helpful, we will also cross post for rescue organizations in other provinces as well.
If an individual would like to re-home their herding breed but they do not want to actually surrender it to our care, the best we can do is a courtesy posting on our facebook page. We do have a few ground rules for courtesy postings, which you can view by clicking on the button below.
We do not promote courtesy posts or screen interested parties. That is entirely up to the owner of that dog.
