Happy Tail – Ellie (formerly Lacey)

I adopted Lacey, now Ellie, in January. She has been an absolute blessing to our family and has established a connection with each member of the family.  She loves to run and play with her toys and gets very excited when it is time to go anywhere.  Ellie has become my anti-anxiety dog, and has a soothing way about her that would make anybody fall in love with her. She is so incredible, and I feel so lucky to have found her.

Thank you Homeward Pet Adoption!  I can’t imagine my life without her!


Happy Tail – Hercules!

What a fantastic dog!  Herc is a great addition to our family.  He is well behaved, funny to the point of being downright goofy, and gets along great with my female German Wirehaired Pointer, Iris.  Both he and Iris are indoor dogs, but have access to the back deck, patio, and yard any time they want through a dog door.  He loves laying in the sun with his nose in the air taking in all the smells.  My vet here says his health is excellent, but believes he is very susceptible to cruciate ligament damage when playing until he gets down to a more reasonable weight.  Herc is on a strict portion-size diet and easy exercise program. We’ll also monitor his thyroid meds carefully until he gets down to 90-95 lbs from his current 109 lbs.   He follows me around the house and leans against me looking for scratching and petting, but doesn’t suffer from any separation anxiety.  I’m really glad I was able to adopt him!


Homeward Pet Celebrates 25 Years!

Homeward Pet recently celebrated our 25th Anniversary with our annual anniversary adoption event on February 28th. Nearly one hundred families joined us on a sunny Saturday to find their newest furry friend! The event was an outstanding success with 30 animals going to loving homes. This extraordinary day would not have been possible without the amazing engagement of our community. Hundreds of our supporters shared, liked, tweeted and forwarded our adoption event details so our cats and dogs could receive the BEST chance at finding their new home.

February also marked the close of our 25th Anniversary fundraising campaign. We were overwhelmed by the amazing support of our donors! With their help, we exceeded our original goal of $6,250 by raising $9,257 to benefit the animals of Homeward Pet

This May, Homeward Pet will reach another milestone—our 25,000th animal adoption! This momentous occasion would not be possible without the continued support of our caring community. Your dedication is what strengthens our commitment to our mission to give homeless cats and dogs a second chance.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many!


An outstanding month for the Homeward Pet Food Bank!

In the month of March, 24,756 lbs. of food came in and of that, 14,233 lbs. went to families and pets in need in our community.

Currently the Homeward Pet Food Bank helps around 700 families per week by distributing pet food and supplies to families in need through local food banks and outreach programs.

THANK YOU to all of our food bank donors and partners that allow us to continue this important work!


Homer Gets A Home!

Homer, one of our longest residents and an officially Overlooked Dog, was adopted Wednesday!  Jason came in just to meet this big dog (who always had one ear up and one ear down), and we are so happy to have been part of this match!  Congratulations to Homer and Jason!  Pictured with Adoption Counselor, Juliet.
