We do allow intact pets to be listed through Rehome and are helping to ensure they are spayed and neutered. We listened to our essential partners at shelters and rescues about the concerns of allowing intact pets to be adopted. So we took some precautions.
We require the adopter to spay or neuter their new family member within 30 days of adopting the pet; they sign off on it in the contract. Our team also checks in with the new adopter within 30 days to confirm they have had the procedure completed.
The Rehome team looked at data and trends to see if pets are being adopted because they are intact. In fact, it’s the opposite, pets already spayed or neutered are more likely to be adopted.
