Animal Care of Davis County provides a platform for residents of Davis County to rehome their pets from the comfort of their own home by listing the pet among the adoptable animals in our care, because who knows your pet better than you?

By telling us a little about your pet and uploading your favorite photo of them, you can submit them to our platform for prospective adopters to see. There is no fee to list your pet, and all interaction between you and potential adopters is done on your timeline. All submissions are reviewed by our staff before being listed on our website, and once approved, your listing will be posted for thirty days to increase the possibility of securing a new home for your pet.

This service is provided for those who need to rehome pets before considering surrender. Submissions of litters and any other breeder activity is prohibited and will not be accepted.

Please note that this is a courtesy for the residents of Davis County only, and Animal Care of Davis County does not take any responsibility for the transfer of ownership through this program.

If you find that you've exhausted all other resources, Animal Care of Davis County will still accept owner-surrendered pets, however, we encourage you to list your pet on our rehoming platform for at least two weeks prior to scheduling a surrender appointment.

If you are surrendering your pet for behavioral issues, it is important to be honest with us about the issues your pet is experiencing. This will help us find the right home for them, and sometimes, just changing the environment the animal is in can be the path to success. For example, a pet that doesn't get along with kids or other animals should be placed with a family that has no children or other pets in the home. Other times, your pet's behavior may unknowingly be remedied with simple solutions and with our resources, you might be able to keep your pet in your home after receiving the help we can provide.

In rare instances, the animal might have medical needs that you can no longer care for. In those cases, we ask that you bring thorough medical documentation from your primary veterinarian so that we can confer with them and continue the care as needed.
