You can give your pet away for free, however Rehome recommends Private Owners listing their pets on Rehome charge at least a small adoption fee.
Why: First and foremost to help protect your pet! Studies show that adoption fees serve several purposes, a few of those being:
- They prevent “bunchers” from getting their hands on your pet.
- Bunchers are people who acquire pets from “Free to Good Home” ads and sell them to medical research laboratories.
- They serve as a deterrent to people who might be looking for a free animal to use as a fighting dog or as bait animal for fighting dogs.
