If your pet isn’t good with other animals, you’re looking for a pet-free home.

If your pet is good with other animals, and the adopter’s pets are good with the type of animal you’re rehoming, you’re probably in good shape. All that’s left is the introduction to make sure that they do, indeed get along.

If there’s any uncertainty, you’ll want to do a careful introduction (for dogs), or make sure that the adopter is comfortable doing an introduction at home for cats (which might not happen until after the adoption, and must be done very slowly).
