Caring For Creatures gets contacted daily from people in need of rehoming their pets. Unfortunately, as a non-profit animal sanctuary, we only have a certain amount of space to be able to take in animals and are often not in a position to accommodate new residents. Even if we are unable to take in your companion, there may be other ways we can help. By completing this form honestly and with as much detail as possible, we will be better able to assist you in rehoming your companion(s).

Upon completion of this form, a team member will be in touch with you as soon as possible. This may take a few days, so please do not be concerned if you do not hear from us immediately. If this is an emergency, please complete this form and then call our office at 434-842-2404

    Describe the steps you have taken to rehome your pet:

    If CFC is able to accept your pet, are you willing/able to donate to help with your pet’s care while we seek a new home for him/her?

    Would you be able and open to trying to re-home your pet directly from your home into another home, giving you the opportunity to bypass the need for a shelter? (Given how stressful it can be for an animal to transition from home-living into shelter-living, this would be the best scenario for your companion.):
