Home To Home


Whether you seek a new best friend, or sadly must give up the pet you have, Home To Home saves animals the trauma of a shelter stay. A private Home To Home adoption lets pets go directly from one home into another without ever setting foot in a shelter.

If you live in Alameda, use Home To Home to avoid surrendering your pet to Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS). (If you do not live in Alameda, check to see if your local shelter is a Home To Home partner.)

Once you have created a profile for your pet, it will appear both on Home To Home and the FAAS Facebook page

If you are adopting, you can use Home To Home to search for available pets no matter where you live or the pet's location. Home to Home is a nationwide service.

Home To Home offers many benefits:

  • Reduces stress on animals by keeping them out of the shelter.
  • Leaves more shelter resources available to animals with no other options: stray, abandoned or suffering from neglect.
  • Gives potential new owners a chance to learn more about the animals directly from the current owner.

We would like to thank Home To Home and Maddie's Fund for making this life-saving program possible!
