Sponsor These Shelter Animals & Bring Them to Safety

The animals featured here are some of the hundreds Homeward Trails is asked to rescue each week. Space and money are the greatest barriers to us saying yes to each request. As a supporter of HT, you can help a great deal by making a donation to offset the costs to rescue one of these animals. On average, it costs approximately $150 to rescue each dog and $100 to rescue each cat. This includes basic vet care provided by the shelters, fuel for transport, staff time, additional vaccines and housing once they arrive at HT.

We are now offering our wonderful family of HT supporters the opportunity to donate to a specific animal and help us bring him/her to safety before time runs out. Every donation will save the life of a specific animal…and any donations over the amount needed will be applied to others in need.

Please, consider a tax-deductible donation today to help these animals. They deserve a 2nd chance at life. And together, we can give them that.

Heidi

SPONSOR ME

Heidi was stuck in a over-crowded SW Virginia shelter and was dangerously close to being euthanized. We sprung to action and were able to save Heidi and a bunch of her friends just in the nick of time. Unfortunately, after rescuing Heidi, we found out that she is Heartworm positive. Heartworm is treatable, but the treatments are very expensive. Please help us cover this unexpected cost and get Heidi back in tip-top shape so she can focus on the real task at hand – finding a perfect fur-ever home!

Vanilla

SPONSOR ME

Vanilla is coming to us from a very sad situation. Her owners did not have the financial ability to care for themselves, never mind her, which led to their house being condemned. They were forced to leave their house to live in a motel and unfortunately had to leave their animals behind in the condemned house.

When we heard about this situation we just had to help! Sadly, Vanilla was rescued from the house in terrible shape. She has a highly contagious form of mange which has become so bad that she has nearly lost all her fur. She is a senior dog and suffering from this condition has left her very weak. She is going to need a lot of love and medical care and will also need to be kept quarantined while she is treated due to how highly contagious her condition can be.

Every dog deserves to live out their golden years in comfort and that is what we are trying to do for Vanilla. Due to the expense of her treatment we are asking for your help to sponsor the cost of her medical care.

Can you help to sponsor Vanilla so we can get her back in tip top shape and find her a warm & loving home to spend the rest of her life?

Diesel – SPONSORED!

SPONSOR ME

Diesel is currently at a high-kill shelter in rural WV. He found himself at the shelter after being hit by a car and suffering many injuries. He has puncture wounds, lacerations and horrible road rash covering his body. Diesel’s owner was located but couldn’t afford the medical care he needed so Diesel was left at the shelter to fend for himself.

We need your help to save poor Diesel! He will need a lot of ongoing medical care to ensure all his wounds heal well which can be very costly. We want to make sure Diesel gets back to looking & feeling his best so that he can focus on finding a loving family that will never give up on him!

Sponsoring Diesel will help us save him from the shelter, transport him to our facilities, ensure he is up to date on all vaccinations and, most importantly, get him all the medical care he needs!

Bruce – SPONSORED!

SPONSOR ME

 

Bruce is an extremely sweet dog who hails from a rural high-kill shelter in WV. He was in a group of dogs that we had to rush to save due to Jonas the Blizzard! Many dogs at this shelter were being housed outside due to limited space and were going to be euthanized before the storm. We jumped into action to save these dogs but Bruce is suffering from some bad skin issues which is causing patchy fur.

By sponsoring Bruce you will help us provide him with all necessary medical care and get him ready to find the loving fur-ever home he deserves!

Hoarding/Abandonment Rescue Dogs

SPONSOR ME

 

We have once again partnered with our friends at Animal Rescue Corps to help save many dogs and puppies who were rescued from horrendous hoarding and abandoment situations. These dogs were living outside in the cold, or in abandoned properties with amonia levels too high to even enter the property without face masks. Some of these dogs had no access to food for up to a week!

Animal Rescue Corps was able to rescue 131 animals from 5 different hoarding & abandonment situations in Tennessee.

We are doing our part by taking in 15 dogs and puppies!

We will be helping these pups in their recovery from various medical conditions, including ear infections, malnourishment and various skin issues and lacerations. Not to mention the social rehabilitation these poor pups will need in learning to trust people and learning to play and enjoy life.

Helping these dogs is what we love to do but it is not cheap! The medical care needed for all these dogs is tremendous! The time associated with caring for them and rehabilitating them is even more tremendous.

We cannot continue to help these poor pups without generous donors like you! Please help us offset this extremely large expense so we can keep doing what we love to do – saving dogs with no hope left and giving them the love they deserve!

SPONSOR ME

Nina was dumped on a vet’s doorstep after hours when she was a puppy. She was very injured and had to have one eye surgically removed.  Her other eye is impaired but she isn’t completely blind.

She loves affection and she is much smaller than she appears at under 20lbs. She is blind but gets around well (may be able to see shadows). She is about a year old and may have beagle or doxy in her. She is very very sweet.
Nina has been stuck at a rural shelter for a long time and needs our help. Please consider sponsoring Nina so we can get her out of the shelter and find her a loving fur-ever home she deserves!
