While Rehome's platform is designed for local adoptions, we do not prohibit long-distance adoptions! While this next part may go without saying, we'd be remiss not to mention the following:
- We do NOT condone the shipping of any pets whatsoever.
- We do NOT recommend finalizing an adoption without first doing a Meet & Greet.
As long as we're all on the same page on these two key components, it's up to you, as the pet's parent, to screen and talk to any applicants and for you both to agree on how a long-distance adoption would work.
Some potential adopters are willing to drive to your neck of the woods for a Meet & Greet, while others may be able to meet you halfway. However, if the right family for your pet isn't local and IF you, as the pet's parent, are willing to road trip it with your pet for a Meet & Greet (and again, if necessary, to finalize the adoption), you're welcome to include that you are willing to consider long-distance applicants in your pet's "Story" (within their online profile).
- We do suggest putting how far you're willing to travel, e.g. 3 hours in any direction from your current location).
