Pooler Paws Rehome
What is the Rehome Program?
We are here to help you find a home for your pet. We will use our resources to post your pet on multiple online sites. When someone is interested in meeting your cat, we connect you to the potential adopters to find a new home.
Where do the cats stay?
They stay with you. Our rescues are often full and can’t take more animals. You keep your pet while we help you to find a new home.

What do you charge for this?
We ask for a donation of $ 50. Because we are a non-profit and don’t get any government assistance, we rely on donations to help the cats in need. Pooler Paws Rehome is a way to fundraise while also helping people find new homes for their cat. It does take a lot of time for a volunteer to post the pet on all the sites, field potential adopters, and stay in contact with the owner.
Why do we ask for a $100 adoption donation?
If someone can’t afford a small rehoming fee, they are likely to not be able to afford the cost of keeping that pet healthy. There are lots of expenses in raising an animal.
People with bad intentions seek out free pets for reasons like “live train” for dog fighting, to use as food for reptiles, to resale and make money, or abuse the animal.
If you ask for an adoption donation, they have something invested in this animal and are more likely to take proper care of it.
What if you are unable to find a new home for my cat?
We will do our best to help find a new home for your pet. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful. There are a lot of different factors on why your pet may not get adopted. The time of year, lots of similar cats available, etc. Older cats are also a lot harder to find homes for.
