Dont forget Preloved when rehoming a pet

Preloved AnimalsDeciding to rehome your pet can be a heart wrenching decision. When it comes to finding the forever home your pet deserves, vetting a new owner and their home can be a daunting task. With over 100,000 members responding to pet adverts every month, Preloved aim to make finding your pet a loving home in your local area that bit easier.

The UK’s rehoming charities do fantastic work to ensure that all their animals find loving homes as soon as possible. However, with an increasing number of pets unable to stay in their current home, Preloved hope that their listings help to reduce the pressure that these hard working pet shelters experience each day.

Tamebay Cat StripesTamebay’s cat came from a cats shelter, Stripes as he’s known (the marks he leaves from biting and scratching) is more than a little demented and even after six years he’s still not full socialised – a hang over from spending nine months in a caged pen in the cat’s home.

Whilst animal shelters do a fantastic job, it’s much kinder to your pet if they can go straight to their new home with the attention they deserve which is why Preloved are so passionate about animals and helping them find new homes.

Alongside supporting animal charities in any way possible, Preloved’s mission is to keep everyone involved in the pet rehoming process as happy and safe as possible. Every single one of our animal adverts is checked by them, but if users are ever concerned about a pet advert, their committed team will ensure that all measures are taken to investigate and remove the listing from site. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does you can be rest assured that there is a zero tolerance policy outlined in the Preloved Pet Pledge. Preloved also work hard to ensure their members have access to detailed welfare information so that every animal can find their forever home.
