stokeshumanesoc@gmail.comNeed Help Placing Your Pet?


Life throws us a curve ball and we sometimes have to make hard decisions.  If you are in a position where you have to place your pet, we may can help you.  While we are unable to take your pet in at this time, what we can do is get their info out to our huge network of groups and organizations who may be able to take them in and find them a home. 


Please read carefully.  While we have a good success rate, there are no guarantees.  Here are the steps you need to take:


  1. Send us 3 DIGITAL  PHOTOS (we utilize the internet solely so we can only take pics that can be emailed) of your pet, a  close up of the face, a side view and a pic of them looking their best. WE CANNOT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT PICTURES!!! THAT IS THE MAIN THING TO REMEMBER! In this business a picture IS a deal breaker.
  2. In that same email tell us about your pet, all you know, (sometimes a stray found you and you are trying to place it)  like it's breed, age, sex, likes, dislikes, be HONEST just because he is not perfect does not mean we cannot place him.  Tell us any vaccines he has had... we need to know everything there is to know.
  3. Be sure to include your contact info, we will direct anyone wanting info to you so be sure to include the best way to reach you.  We are just a middle man, you will interviewing and deciding. 
  4. ALWAYS ask for a vet reference and please try to deliver the pet to the home so you will know where it will live.
  5. Don't give up, it may take a little time, it's worth it, remember a life is at stake, they are worth the time and trouble.
  6. Let us know when the pet has been placed so we can remove from our site.


Send all this information with the words HELP ME PLACE MY PET in the subject line along with the pets name.  Email: 

Finally, give yourself and your pet a big hug, it's hard and its stressful on all involved, but you care enough to try to do the right thing, you rock!!
