A veterinarian, friend, family or co-worker may also be able to assist in finding a new home for an unwanted pet, and websites such as Petfinder.com allow owners to list pets for adoption.

When dropping off the animal in its new location, bring any available veterinary records, if available, as well as special toys or other items the pet is familiar with. Such items can help to reduce stress during the transition.
