VCA Animal Hospitals has partnered with pet adoption website getyourpet.com to help those across the U.S. who need to relinquish a pet connect directly with those looking to adopt.
Get Your Pet lets guardians post a profile, photos, and a video for their pet on the site for free. Adopters can browse up-to-date pet profiles until they find a pet they want to meet, then safely message with the pet’s guardian. If both sides agree, a legal adoption can take place. As part of the adoption process, a Get Your Pet veterinarian will examine the pet at no extra charge.
Get Your Pet will save thousands of dogs and cats from entering animal shelters, where they are exposed to stress, illness and the possibility of being euthanized, “ said Angela Marcus, Get Your Pet founder and animal welfare advocate. “We are thrilled to work with VCA to ensure each pet adopted through getyourpet.com is offered an immediate introduction to high-quality veterinary care for the life of the pet.”
VCA is now honoring Get Your Pet’s Veterinary Voucher, providing a complimentary first exam for all adopted pets.
