Rehoming checklist for sellers

At Pets4Homes animal welfare and pet safety is our number one priority. As a responsible seller, please make sure to read through the below checklist before rehoming your pet:

  1. Arrange a viewing at your home where the buyer can see the pet and review all relevant documentation. 
  2. Ensure the pet meets the age requirements for rehoming.
  3. Ensure that the pet is in good health by bringing your pet to the vet for a health check. You should also permit the buyer to go with you to a vet for a health check.
  4. Ensure that you provide the buyer with the right paperwork, for example: vaccination cards, microchip documentation, pedigree documentation (KC, GCCF, TICA, etc.)
