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.

Vanilla was rescued from a neglectful situation nearly 6 months ago. When we rescued her she had a horrible, contagious form of mange. Despite curing the mange, Vanilla’s skin had really taken a beating and was in very rough shape. Vanilla finally got to continue her healing in a loving foster home where she was steadily improving and it was wonderful to see her beautiful fur start to grow back. Unfortunatley, she hit a plateau in her recovery and then slowly started degressing. She was itching herself constantly, sometimes to the point of making herself bleed. We knew something wasn’t right and sent her off to a specialist.

It was found that Vanilla is suffering from a severely antibiotic resistent staph infection and fungal infections. She received new antibiotics, medicated shampoo and medications to help with her ear infection and itching. Her foster reported that soon after her new meds were started her itching decreased by more than 50%. We are so happy Vanilla is back on track but need your help to cover this unexpected cost. Specialists are not cheap and we need your help to ensure we can continue to help special cases like Vanilla in the future. Please consider a tax deductible donation today!

We are working with a Thai rescue organization to help save 5 dogs that have been spared from the dog meat trade. These dogs have lived their entire lives jammed into small crates with several other dogs. They have been treated like objects, not animals. They have lived their entire lives in fear and at risk of being slaughtered at any moment.

We are specifically helping some of the most terrified and shut down dogs, dogs that are considered the least adoptable, because we know we can help them find the loving forever homes they have always deserved!

This is an extremely expensive rescue as we need to transport these dogs from Thailand, pay for vetting and also prepare for the extensive training and rehabilitaiton they will need once they arrive.

Please help us offset this huge expense and help us give these dogs a second chance at life!
