It’s not too early to shop for your dog-loving Valentine!  Until the end of February, a portion of sales from these great PawsGo “rescue” shirts will go to Homeward Trails.  In addition to Valentine’s Day Red – they come in Ocean and Olive.  Unisex sizes, they are a soft blend that looks great and fits well on everyone!  The front says — Want a Friend? Get a Dog.  On the back it’s — Want to be a Friend?  Rescue!
You can find these shirts at www.pawsgo.com, or if you’re near Alexandria, you can pick one up at the From Head to Tail Spa located at 430 Hume Avenue in Alexandria, VA.

Our busy outdoor event season is about to start and we desperately need new tents to provide shade at our off-site events and at the Adoption Center. We are down to one functional tent and we have multiple outdoor events every Saturday and Sunday. Can you help us provide critical shade for the dogs, volunteers and adopters by donating a tent? We want everyone to be safe and cool while we are busy finding their forever homes.

We have some tents on our Amazon wishlist, or if you have an unused tent a home that you would like to donate we would be happy to take it off your hands. Contact rebeccag@homewardtrails.org with any questions.

Thank you so much!

We treasure our volunteers and want to the thank you for your hard work!  Bring your family for some yummy pancakes and other breakfast goodies and a fun morning of meeting your fellow volunteers and celebrating all the HT has accomplished because of YOU!

Breakfast served beginning at 9 AM, program begins promptly at 10 AM

We can’t wait to see you there!
