Rehoming Your Dog

Are you having trouble re-homing your dog? Cherokee Humane Society can help!
Please see below for more information about how we can work together to find your pet the best new home he/she deserves.

Type A:
You Foster; We Adopt

We will work with you to make sure your dog is fully vetted (spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and on heartworm & flea/tick prevention). You bring your dog in a crate to pet adoptions at the Petco in Acworth every Saturday – drop off is at 10:50 AM, and pick up is at 4:00 PM. Once your dog has found his/her new forever home, the new owner keeps the crate, and Cherokee County Humane Society keeps the adoption fee. Your dog’s adoption process will be the same as all the other dogs in our program.
Type B:
You Foster; You Adopt

If your dog has been spayed/neutered and has a current rabies vaccination, then you send us three good pictures of your dog (make sure to include one headshot and one full body image) and a biography for your dog. We will post the information on our website as well as the main Cherokee County Humane Society website and list you as the main contact person for your dog. It will be your responsibility to screen potential adopters who contact you and to adopt your dog out to a new family.

Type C:
We Foster; We Adopt

If we have the space available, you surrender your dog to us. We will place the dog in foster care, where he/she will be fully vetted and adopted out. For this option, a donation is suggested to help us pay for food, medicine, and the spay/neuter surgery
