Hawks Day Out

Homeward Pet Volunteer, Kirsten,  gave our available Coon Hound mix, Hawk, a day out of the kennels. Kristen has a fabulous fenced yard that would allow for him to be off leash and free to run and play for a couple of hours.

Kristen shared “he is a wonderful goofy houndy guy.  He was such an easy dog (not great on recall) but tended to venture out and then come back to check in.  Took treats very nicely. Understood that the dog bed was there for him.  Didn’t overly react when the cats came to the back door to look out at him.  Did a good amount of both snuggling and running.”

Learn more about Hawk and all our available dogs and puppies.

Halloween Safety Tips

Keeping your pet safe on Halloween doesn’t have to be tricky.  Read our common sense tips for keeping your pet safe and stress-free this Halloween.

Creative Clinic!

The Homeward Pet clinic staff are always looking for ways to improve the efficiency and accuracy when providing medications to the animals in our care….

The first photo is the team putting a hairball remedy into syringes so the animal care staff can syringe the entire amount into the cats mouths at one time rather than small amounts on their fingers that can take half hour or more to get it all in and it’s messy!

The images on the right are of the contents from a giant bottle of Miralax that needed to be given in less than ¼ tsp doses. The team figured out that by putting the correct measurement into an empty pill capsule would help in reducing spillage, getting it all over themselves and waste.

Way to go TEAM!

Barnaby in Fashion

Barnaby is getting ready for wet weather by borrowing his foster sister’s raincoat.  He’s currently in foster with one of our fantastic volunteers, but this stylish Terrier/Chinese Crested mix is available for adoption.  Read more about Barnaby, and all of our available dogs.

Spike and Dot’s Happy Tail! 


We just wanted to give an update on our kittens adopted back in July from Homeward Pet. Sebastian and Button are now Spike and Dot and have settled into our household nicely.

Spike and Dot really like to run around, climb to high places, play with toys and paper, and sleep. Spike likes watching television too. Each has grown a lot, gaining 1.5 to 2 pounds so far. They have visited the vet a couple times, too, just to get checked out and finish their shots for the year.

Attached are some photos to post on the blog or to send on to the foster family that took such good care of them.

Thanks, Homeward Pet! We love the kittens.”  – Tracy

Arlo’s Outing!

Homeward Pet Volunteers, Beth and Kim, and available canine, Arlo, headed out of the shelter for an afternoon adventure – a wonderful sight for the staff and behavior team volunteers.

Arlo came to Homeward Pet fearful and not trusting of humans. With daily interactions, training and kennel enrichment exercises, the staff and behavior team have been helping her daily to build confidence and trust. Kim’s huge fenced yard provided Arlo a chance to just run and boy did she!

Both Beth and Kim enjoyed watching Arlo rolling in the grass, coming in for cuddles and just generally acting like a normal dog. Learn more about Arlo here.
